Manchester United are confident they can keep Paul Pogba at the club beyond the summer transfer window, despite Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in signing the French midfielder.
Pogba is in the final year of his contract with the Red Devils and has turned down an offer to extend the club’s stay at Old Trafford. United’s signing of the club record leaves him open to options and has not ruled out a move to Park des Princes this summer.
PSG has held preliminary talks with Pogba’s agent Menu Raiola. But no official bid has been made for France International. The French club midfielder is worth about £ 43 million.But United want to pay 89 89 million in 2016, which they paid to Juventus in 2016, and Pogba is currently valued at about £ 63 million.
The Premier League side will be reluctant to lose Pogba on a free transfer next summer, but according to him. Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, United are confident they will keep it for another season. Ole Gunnar Solskjir is also hopeful that they can convince him for his long-term future with better performances next season.
“The situation with Pogba is still the same,” Romano said of himself. Here we go to the podcast. Earlier this week. “There is no bid from PSG. Manchester United are confident of keeping the player at the club this summer and may try to extend his contract. It will not be easy but they will try.”
The 28-year-old shone for France at the European Championships last month, but has struggled to replicate for United since leaving Juventus in 2016. He showed his best form in the second half of last season and Solskir is hoping to take him on a new campaign.
United have made two high-profile signings at Judon Sancho and Rafael Varane, and Solscare are planning to win the title after finishing second behind Manchester City last season. New additions and a good start to the season could convince Pogba that his long-term future remains at the club from which he began his professional career.
