Manchester United handed boost in Pogba transfer chase

Manchester United appear to have been handed something of a boost in their pursuit of Paul Pogba, with Paris Saint-Germain's owner having insisted that his club have had no contact with the player.

21-year-old Pogba - who is believed to be a prime target for the Red Devils - appears to be in demand after proving his considerable worth during a highly-successful two-year spell in Serie A but it appears that the French giants are not involved in any move for his signature - at least not yet, anyway.

"Pogba? We have not spoken with him," Nasser Al Khelaifi told Sport Mediaset in an in an interview that was cited by talkSPORT.

"Only at the end of the season will we evaluate everything."

Manchester United - who were powerless to prevent the £40m-rated French starlet from leaving Old Trafford for Juventus in search of regular first-team action during the summer of 2012 - will hope that PSG do not make a significant move for Pogba this summer.

Given that he did not exactly depart the North West on the best terms with the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, you would imagine the chances of him returning this summer are already somewhat slim.

And with Manchester United - who have experienced a thoroughly difficult first campaign under the tutelage of new boss David Moyes - unlikely to be able to offer immediate Champions League football to any prospective new recruits, you would assume that they will be hoping for as little competition as possible for their priority targets.

Though the quality in Pogba's performances would suggest that there will be no shortage of rival suitors for his services, for now PSG do not look to be in the immediate running, which can surely only be good news for Moyes.
