It appears Man United fans are set for another summer of watching Paul Pogba tearing up a major international tournament while wondering why he doesn’t do that at Old Trafford.
A recent report has stated that PSG have held talks about signing him and his contract is up next summer so United aren’t in a position of strength here, while there’s a feeling that PSG want to include more French players to give the impression that they are a French superpower rather than an oil-money club.
They’ve suggested that the Old Trafford club have made contact with Rennes’ wonderkid Eduardo Camavinga. He’s also linked with a move to Paris, but there wouldn’t be a need for him if they add Pogba to the signing of Gini Wijnaldum this summer.
The reported price tag of €100m would be off-putting under normal circumstances but it’s pointed out that his deal also runs out in 2022, so that amount is completely unrealistic when he could sign a pre-contract agreement elsewhere from January.
He’s still only 18 but he’s pushing towards the senior French squad and he’s proven himself in the top-flight already, so he could be the perfect long-term replacement for Pogba.
