Manchester United have been dealt a major blow as midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted he could join Paris Saint-Germain in the future. The 25-year-old has struggled for consistency under Jose Mourinho and has been linked with an exit to a number of European giants.
Pogba has done little to dampen the rumours, admitting to Canal+ via Daily Star: “Why not one day tread the lawn of the Parc des Princes? It’s a beautiful stadium. I cannot look far. I’m sure, contractually, to stay at Manchester United.”
The French international re-joined United from Juventus in 2016 and has made 87 appearances in all competitions since. Pogba has won the League Cup and Europa League in his two years back at Old Trafford, but his future has been uncertain as rumours of a fallout between him and Mourinho gained intensity this season.
Real Madrid tried to sign Pogba before he returned to United and haven’t given up trying to bring the 25-year-old to the Santiago Bernabéu since. PSG have also been linked as they look to strengthen their midfield to finally go toe-to-toe with the European giants in the Champions League.
While the £200k-per-week star continues to struggle in Manchester, interest from other clubs could tempt him to make the move, especially after a trophyless campaign that has seen the Red Devils finish 19 points off leaders Manchester City.
