Eager to attract a big name in the middle, PSG has set its sights on Paul Pogba. And it is clear for the Manchester United player.
Mutual interest between Paris SG and Paul Pogba
Last month, Nicolas Anelka had publicly revealed on RMC Sport that Paul Pogba would seriously consider saying yes to Paris Saint-Germain. The French midfielder is not inclined to extend his next contract which expires on June 30 with the Red Devils. “Manchester United is not the best club for Paul Pogba to have fun and show all his talent. PSG would be great for him. I talked with him six months ago and he would not mind coming. If he comes, we will forget about his injuries and people will see that he is a real talent, “said the former striker of the capital club.
A trend confirmed in England by Julien Laurens, who also reveals that there is now a mutual interest between the leader of the French championship and the 2018 World Champion. “For PSG, we know for sure that the interest exists on both sides. He likes the idea of playing in Paris, of coming home, since he was born and raised in Paris. And for PSG, which is looking to strengthen its midfield, especially if it can sell before many of the midfielders it already has, “said the journalist of the media ESPN, during The Transfer Talk of the American channel.
Continuing, he emphasizes that PSG is not alone on this big move since “Juventus feels the same as PSG for Paul Pogba” who “leaves all options open” for his future. For his part, the principal has revealed his conditions for the continuation of his career.
PSG Mercato : Pogba sets his conditions to sign
In a recent interview with the daily Le Figaro, Paul Pogba announced the color for his future. Even if he won the World Cup with France, the 28-year-old midfielder is still looking for his first Champions League. The native of Lagny-sur-Marne therefore wants to join a team that will be able to allow him to “continue to win, to progress, and make up for those years when I couldn’t win trophies.”
Especially since his return to Manchester United is not a great success. “We have to be honest, it does not satisfy me, over the last five seasons, but really not at all. This year is dead, we will not win anything yet, “said the Pick. Regarding the rest of his career, Pogba explains “whether with Manchester or another club, I want to win trophies (…) I’m very happy with what I’ve done, but I’m not satiated, far from it.”
While his name is regularly associated with Paris SG, the player trained at the Havre AC acknowledges that “to play again in France, in front of my family and friends, maybe it will happen one day, why not, but it’s not something that haunts me (…) It’s always good to play with teammates in the French team and club.”
PSG knows what it has to do.
