Paris Saint-Germain remain keen on Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, a move that could see Barcelona transfer target Marco Verratti leave the French capital.

According to Spanish source Mundo Deportivo [as per Le 10 Sport], PSG remain keen on France international Pogba, and may be set to intensify their attempts to bring the powerhouse midfielder to the French capital over the coming months.

Le 10 Sport note that should PSG finally get their man, the transfer could lead to the departure of Verratti, with the talented playmaker reportedly wanted by Barcelona.

The Italian is under contract at PSG until 2019, but Barca have made no secret of their interest in the player, and it’s easy to see why Verratti might be tempted by the prospect of taking the creative mantle in the heart of the midfield at the Nou Camp.

However, both PSG and Barcelona could be set to face transfer competition as they hope to sign their desired midfielders.

The Mirror acknowledged on Monday that both Chelsea and Manchester United are keen on Pogba, while Mundo Deportivo [via Goal] note that the aforementioned pair, as well as Arsenal and Manchester City are monitoring a move for Italy international Verratti.
