Blaise Matuidi wants Paul Pogba to join him at PSG

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi has urged Paul Pogba to ignore interest from the Premier League and join him in Paris if he wants to leave Juventus.

The Frenchman has been strongly linked with a move away from the Serie A champions in recent years, but it is heavily expected that he will call time on his Juve career this summer as interest in him hots up.

European Interest

According to reports, Pogba has offers from three different countries, with English, Spanish and French teams interested in signing him.

From the Premier League, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all keen on the powerhouse, whilst La Liga duo FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are also desperate to land the 22-year-old.

PSG Summer Plans

However, Pogba's national team-mate Matuidi, who plays for PSG, has urged him to snub interest from England and Spain in order to link-up with him in the French league.

PSG are still in the process of creating a team strong enough to compete in Europe, and after once again winning the Ligue 1 title Laurent Blanc is set for another summer of spending in order to build a bigger squad for the Champions League next year.

Due to Financial Fair Play rules PSG will have to be smart in the transfer window, but with the likes of Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi linked with exits, the French side may raise enough funds to spend on Pogba.

Juventus Career

The Juventus midfielder has been superb during his time in Italy, and has since signed a contract extension at The Old Lady, but a mega-money move elsewhere could tempt him away from Turin.

Matuidi has recently given an interview about his countryman and he's advised him that if he were to leave Juventus, he should think about a career with PSG.

"If Paul Pogba was ready to come, I'd be very happy. If I have a piece of advice to give him, it's to come to Paris," Matuidi told the TV show Canal Football Club.

Interest is High

All clubs interested have been linked with making formal moves of around £70 million for the 22-year-old, making him one of the world's most expensive transfers.

If he does go for £70m, that would be just £15m shy of the Gareth Bale deal that took him from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid.
