PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi met Paul Pogba in France recently, sparking rumors that he could move to the Ligue 1 champions in the summer. With Pogba’s contract at Manchester United set to expire in the summer and there are no signs that the midfielder has signed a new contract, his exit appears to be in full swing.
Money is not a problem for PSG, and it has made it a habit to record top-class players for free transfers with their ability to offer top contracts.
Sergio Ramos, Leo Messi, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Georginio Wijnaldum all arrived for free transfers last summer and their deals have expired with their clubs. PSG would not be alone in their search for Pogba, with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus all linked.
However their financial stability will put them in the driver’s seat, and a return to their home country of France could entice Pogba to change.
Real Madrid have long been linked with Pogba, especially during the time of Zinedine Zidane and the club, but Manchester United’s high demands on a transfer fee had put them off every effort.
Although free, Madrid may not be so keen on doing business with Mino Raiola through his client, Florentino Perez ‘s transfer policy has shifted the focus to the youth.
