Paris Saint-Germain has made the first move in the race to see who will sign Paul Pogba with Manchester City, Chelsea and also his former club Manchester United interested in signing the Juventus midfielder.
Goal.com is reporting that the French champions have offered the Italian giants £58 million for the talented 22-year-old, but that there is no guarantee he will leave Turin to return to his hometown of Paris as personal terms are yet to be discussed.
Meanwhile Manchester City sees Pogba as the ideal replacement for the departing Yaya Toure, while both Chelsea and Manchester United would also be willing to offer big money to have the French international playing for them next season.
The English clubs will need to get their skates on however as PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi met with Pogba and his representatives in Monte Carlo earlier in the week, but did not discuss financial compensation with the player, as Pogba waits to see what other offers will be on the table come summertime. Al-Khelaifi when speaking to the French media about Pogba said: “Why did I talk with Pogba? Because he’s a great talent, he’s French, from Paris even.
That said all the big clubs want him.”
Juventus sporting director Giuseppe Marotta spoke about the meeting following Wednesday night’s game with Fiorentina saying: “It was an occasional meeting. They spoke about football. We don’t want to sell Paul.”
Despite what Marotta says to the press he knows every player has a price and is bracing himself for talks with Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola, who is also the representative of PSG’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
