Paris Saint-Germain is in hot pursuit of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba. The latest report from ESPN reporter Mark Ogden sees that the English club is open to a deal that would be delighted to have an offer of £50-million (€58-million) come their way.
However, it seems as though there’s still some hope that Pogba can remain with Manchester United for this season as Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano relayed the comments made by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
“The talks are ongoing between Paul’s representatives and us. All the dialogue I’ve had with Paul is he’s looking forward to the season,” Solskjær said.
Pogba can remain past the summer transfer window, but Manchester United runs the risk of losing him on a free transfer next year. It would be a terrible business decision to lose an asset for nothing, especially if the 28-year-old has shown reluctance in extending his contract.
The Premier League side saw their reported lucrative offer of a contract worth around €58-million rejected by the midfielder. Solskjær is thinking like a manager, but those in charge know that they’ll need to sell if Pogba has no intention of extending his contract.
