Paul Pogba has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain for about as long as I’ve been writing about the club for PSG Talk (since 2015).
The former Juventus FC and now Manchester United midfielder reportedly wants to leave Old Trafford this summer in order to play UEFA Champions League football and compete for trophies.
Pogba, who just turned 27 last March, is under contract with Manchester United until June 30, 2021, so it would behoove the Red Devils to sell now so that they don’t lose the Frenchman on a free transfer next summer.
According to Le10Sport, Real Madrid, Juventus, and PSG are the three teams with the most interest in the FIFA World Cup winner. The report goes on to say that while Pogba “dreams of Real Madrid,” he doesn’t rule out the idea of a transfer to PSG.
Adding Pogba would be incredible for PSG as they desperately need to add some height and creativity to their midfield. Being French doesn’t hurt either.
The only issue will be the price. Manchester United signed Pogba from Juventus in 2016 for €110 million. They’ll want to recoup as much of that as possible but it’s unlikely PSG will be able to go that high due to the financial impact of the coronavirus.
Maybe there’s a swap deal that can be worked out or a loan with an option to buy like PSG had with Inter Milan for Mauro Icardi.
