Manchester United have received no contact from Paris Saint-Germain about a possible move for Paul Pogba. Reports in France claim Pogba, 28, is close to an agreement with PSG but the Ligue 1 runners-up have not formally approached United. Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has been contacted for comment.
Pogba has entered the last year of his United contract and the Manchester Evening News reported in April he is relaxed about his future and prepared to stay for at least another year if a summer transfer does not materialise.
Pogba and his wife, Zulay, are settled in Cheshire with their two young sons and sources say Pogba’s partner is particularly happy in the area.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer clarified on Sunday Pogba is due to return for pre-season training on Monday. Pogba and his family are currently on holiday in Florida.
Sources at United have lauded Pogba’s professionalism in the last two years despite his open interest in joining Real Madrid. Pogba outlined his desire for ‘a new challenge’ in the 2019 summer window.
Pogba’s brother, Mathias, warned United in February they risked losing Pogba on a free when his contract expires in 2022. Solskjaer has managed Pogba tactfully and kept his counsel amid a number of outbursts by Raiola.
