A summer transfer window simply wouldn’t be complete without speculation about Paul Pogba’s Manchester United future, and this one certainly is no different.
Pogba’s potential exit has never been far away from the headlines, with Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona all having been linked with the Frenchman over the years, although all of those sides would appear unable to afford a move this summer amid the global downturn in football finances.
One side that could potentially do a deal this summer however is Paris Saint-Germain, and it is believed that Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has already held talks with the Parisien side.
It is claimed that United may be willing to allow the World Cup winner leave for around the £50 million mark, as opposed to losing him for free for a second time in nine years.
Speaking after a youthful United side were beaten 4-2 by QPR on Saturday afternoon, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was quizzed on the star midfielder’s future.
“There’s always speculation about Paul and clubs being interested, and we’ve seen Paul at his best,” Solskjaer told the media at his post-match press conference.
“Paul knows what we feel about it and I’ve enjoyed my time working with him and hopefully we can work together. The talks between the club and Paul’s representatives, I’m not in the detail of every single one of them. I’ve got nothing to say about that. Let’s see what happens.”
Pressed further, he added: “The talks are ongoing between Paul’s representatives and the club representatives. All the dialogue I’ve had with Paul is he’s looking forward to the season.”
