PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen to sign Paul Pogba whose time at Manchester United appears to be winding down.
The Red Devils extended Pogba’s deal earlier in the season to avoid losing the 27-year-old free.
But it seems only a matter of time before the 27-year-old departs Old Trafford, especially given what Mino Raiola said of him.
And according to The Mirror, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will demand a fee of £75m for their prized asset.
That’s £14m less than the £89m they paid to re-sign the France international for back in 2016, shortly after Jose Mourinho’s appointment as manager.
Pochettino thinks the 2018 World Cup winner is the perfect player to build his PSG team around, believing Pogba can shine in the same side as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
And the Argentine is confident he can beat Real Madrid and Juventus to Pogba’s signature, especially given the Ligue 1 giants’ vast resources.
The report adds Real have, for two years now, failed to meet the Red Devils’ valuation of £100m or more for Pogba.
But United are now willing to drop their asking price to avoid losing their prized asset for nothing.
