With one year left on his contract at Manchester United, Paul Pogba is rumored to be heading to PSG, but nothing is done yet. According to the latest news, the future of the French midfielder could have a completely different outcome at the end of the summer mercato.
Mercato PSG : Paul Pogba not interested in Ligue 1 ?
For several weeks now, the name of Paul Pogba is regularly associated with Paris Saint-Germain. The 28-year-old French international would be particularly interested in arriving in the capital to join Mauricio Pochettino‘s team. After five years with Manchester United in the Premier League, the 2018 world champion wants a change of scenery and would make the Parisian club his priority for the future. After several discussions with the sporting director of the Reds and Blues Leonardo, the Pioche would have given his agreement for a transfer to PSG.
However, Laurie Whitwell assures that the deal would be totally different in this case. Indeed, the British journalist explained in the columns of the newspaper The Athletic that Paul Pogba would not be so excited about the idea of leaving the Premier League to land in Ligue 1. According to ESPN, the former Juventus midfielder is happy in Manchester and is not necessarily looking for a new challenge away from the Red Devils. Sky Sports even specifies that Anthony Martial‘s compatriot would be more focused on the sports project and would have doubts about a transfer to Paris. And the latest release of the Manchester manager rather confirms this trend in this case.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confident about Paul Pogba
On the eve of the friendly match against Everton at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke once again about the situation of Paul Pogba. And the least we can say is that the Manchester United coach is confident that he will keep the native of Lagny-sur-Marne in his squad this season.
“I hope that every player thinks that Manchester United is the right place to win trophies. When you sign for this club, you have to take on the challenge. Paul has come back and he’s fresh, he’s always such a positive lad. The discussions I’ve had with him have all been positive,” said the Norwegian coach, who also welcomed the arrival of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.
“From now on, everything is a bonus. I must say that with the two signings we have, we have strengthened where we wanted to do (…) I am very happy with what we have achieved,” added the former Manchester United striker. However, it remains to be seen if the announced arrival of Lionel Messi will be able to convince Pogba to definitively choose the PSG option for his future.
