In a slight surprise from L'Équipe's report this morning, Canal Supporters is now saying that Paul Pogba's representatives and PSG are close to reaching a deal.
Pogba's (28) negotiations with PSG are progressing well, and an agreement is close to being achieved, with the French international placing a high priority on joining the Paris club.
Since Solskjaer took over for Jose Mourinho in December 2018, the 28-year-old has been a regular starter for United. However, his desire to leave is not regarded to be as strong as it was two years ago.
Pogba scored six goals in 42 appearances for United, who finished second in the Premier League. They also lost in the Europa League final to Villarreal. Meanwhile, United is close to completing the signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. More big celebrities are anticipated to join the party.
Pogba is expected to become PSG's third most paid player, after Neymar and Kylian Mbappé in terms of earnings.
The cost, on the other hand, continues to be a sticking issue. With only a year left on Pogba's contract, an offer of €50 million, according to L'Équipe, may be enough to persuade Manchester United to sell. According to Canal Supporters, United would initially strive for a budget of between €70 million and €80 million.
There is still a long way to go here, as PSG will almost certainly need to sell key players to fund the move, and there is no new information on any agreement between the clubs involved, only PSG and the player himself.
Earlier reports suggest that Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will let his contract lapse and decide on his future next summer, dealing a significant blow to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans.
Pogba is in the final year of his contract at Old Trafford and will be allowed to speak with international teams in January, ahead of a free move in the summer of 2022. Even though many of Pogba's teammates have had their contracts extended, talks on a new contract have stalled.
But, with the recent developments, the United star looks to make a move to the French Capital without any further delay.
