Paris Saint-Germain in contact with Paul Pogba’s agent

Paris Saint-Germain are in contact with the representative of Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and believe they can sign him on a cut-price deal, The Mail reports.

Pogba has entered the final year of his contract with the Red Devils, and the club have yet to make any progress over extending his deal.

Talks are planned when he returns from holiday, and it has been reported that he could be handed a £70,000 raise on his £290,000-a-week wages.

It is now reported that agent Mino Raiola has entered talks with Les Parisiens and is negotiating personal terms for the France international.

United landed Pogba in a club-record £89 million deal five years ago. Les Parisiens believe that they can force United to sell him for just £43m.

It has been specifically mentioned that the club have yet to make contact with United.

Sportslens view:

Pogba clearly stated that there have been no concrete talks with United over a contract extension while he was on international duty last month.

This has intensified speculation regarding his future, but United are still optimistic that the midfielder will put pen-to-paper on a new bumper contract.

Talks are planned when he returns for pre-season training, but another contract stand-off could pave the way for his exit this summer.

Les Parisiens may need to sell a couple of players to make room for Pogba, but they have still been regularly linked with the World Cup winner.

It has recently been claimed that United are in advanced negotiations with Saul Niguez’s agent, and the Atletico Madrid star could end up replacing Pogba.

Saul is no longer indispensable to the Spanish champions. He could be available for an affordable fee of around £34.5m (€40m) this summer.
