Paris Saint-Germain are monitoring Paul Pogba’s situation at Manchester United, Le Parisien says.
The Frenchman has spent the last five seasons with the Red Devils, but his future with the club is unclear.
Pogba’s United contract expires in 12 months, and he recently acknowledged that he has yet to get into serious talks about a potential extension.
According to reports, Mino Raiola, Pogba’s agent, has a strong connection with Les Parisiens, having previously secured agreements for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Maxwell.
He is now close to concluding Gianluigi Donnarumma’s free transfer to the Ligue 1 giants, and he has also been appointed as Marco Verratti’s new agent.
PSG are not actively chasing Pogba’s signature but may make a move if United or the player indicate a desire to split ways.
Les Parisiens just added Georginio Wijnaldum on a Bosman transfer, and their midfield is brimming with excellent alternatives.
Verratti, Danilo Pereira, Ander Herrera, Idrissa Gueye, and Rafinha are all in contention to fight for the three midfield positions with Wijnaldum.
Any deal for Pogba is likely to coincide with the departure of at least one or two players. Rafinha, Herrera, and Gueye may all be targeted.
United are not interested in selling Pogba at the moment, but their position may alter if contract talks do not conclude until Euro 2020.
Pogba is allegedly demanding a stunning salary deal of more than £400,000 per week, and United are unlikely to agree.
The World Cup champion was once valued at £100 million, but United are no longer in a good position to maintain that figure.
Transfermarkt now values him at approximately £54 million. If United decide to approve his sale this summer, this might be a reasonable asking price.
