Manchester United target Paul Pogba is in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a mega-money summer move which would see him leave Juventus, according to sources in France.
Le 10 Sport, relaying information from RMC, claims that the agent of the youngster, Mino Raiola, has discussed terms with PSG big-wigs ahead of a proposed transfer to Ligue 1. Of course both Real Madrid and United have expressed strong intent to sign him of late, and so if true this would something of a damning revelation.
It’s estimated that the French starlet would cost potential suitors as much as €60million, though for PSG the money isn’t likely to prove too much of a stumbling block. It would appear that the reigning Ligue 1 champions are confident that they can pip their European rivals to Pogba, and the apparent talks with Raiola only solidify their position at the head of the pack.
A PSG insider is reported to have told sources in France: “Jean-Claude Blanc and Mino Raiola discussed the future of Pogba in discussions about the extension of Maxwell . In Paris, his profile is perfect. He is young, he is one of the top prospects at his position and he has a very good image. In addition, he is French.”
The race for Pogba is one that will undoubtedly dominate headlines in the summer market, but unless Madrid and United can raise their game they risk falling behind early on.
