Paris Saint-Germain continues to rebuild its midfield, Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes seem to be staples for the capital club. Furthermore, Rafinha has shown that he can contribute when given minutes.
However, the French giants would like to continue their efforts in improving the position. Over the last few transfer windows, Les Parisiens have seen their names attached to is Manchester United FC’s Paul Pogba.
According to Foot Mercato, PSG sporting director Leonardo is engaging in talks with the 27-year-old’s agent Mino Raiola. The French media outlet adds that Pogba isn’t against the idea of returning to France.
Pogba is currently unhappy at Manchester United, and it finally seems as though both parties are ready for a divorce. Pursuing Pogba would finally address the issue that Leonardo has long tried to fix: the midfield’s lack of size. Also, having managed against Pogba, it’s safe to say that Mauricio Pochettino would welcome the Manchester United midfielder to his squad.
The French media outlet also reports that Leonardo targets a number eight type midfielder along with a right-back.
