Paris Saint-Germain are keen on signing the Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer. They believe that a cut-price deal of around £50 million would be enough to lure the French international away from the Red Devils.

The 28-year-old midfielder has just one year left on his current contract, and there is no news of the extension talks yet. Rather he has constantly been linked to PSG, Juventus and Real Madrid in recent times.

Manchester United paid a club-record fee of around £89 million when they signed the World Cup winner from Juventus in 2016, but he has failed to live up to the expectations so far.

Pogba’s time at Old Trafford has been a mixed bag, and it will be interesting to see if he decides to move on in search of a fresh challenge this summer.

The Ligue 1 giants have been very active in the transfer market so far, and they have already signed Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldium, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma.

According to reports, the French outfit want to continue their summer spending spree with the signing of Pogba, but they will have to offload some of their fringe players first.

It remains to be seen whether Manchester United are willing to accept a knockdown fee of around £50 million for the star midfielder this summer.

Ideally, the Premier League side will not want to lose a player of Pogba’s calibre on a free transfer next year. Therefore they will be under pressure to cash in on the player in the coming months. Manchester United legend Paul Ince’s recent reaction shows, perhaps United could let their talented midfielder go this time.

PSG have an exceptional defence and attack at their disposal, and they will have to improve their midfield now if they want to challenge for the Champions League next season.

Pogba is undoubtedly one of the best midfielders in world football on his day, and he could prove to be a sensational addition to the French outfit.
