PSG 'want to close transfer for Man Utd star Paul Pogba this summer' but must first shift deadwood

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN reportedly want to 'close out' a deal to sign Manchester United star Paul Pogba.

The French midfielder is yet to agree a new deal at Old Trafford – he has one more season to run.

According to French newspaper L'Equipe, PSG 'would like to close the purchase of Pogba in the next few weeks'.

It is reportedly 'the dream' for president Nasser Al-Khelaifi who wants to 'build the team around Pogba'.

The French giants have already signed Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi, Gio Wijnaldum and Gianluigi Donnarumma this summer.

But the Ligue 1 runners-up will have to ship out some players first. United will still expect a big fee despite the 28-year-old having a year left on his contract.

And Pogba, who was France's best player at the Euros, is believed to take home around £290,000 a week at United.

PSG are growing increasingly confident of sealing a move this summer.

According to French publication RMC, the 28-year-old is 'more than open' to the idea of leaving United for the French capital.

United could be forced to cash in on his signature this summer or risk losing him for nothing in 12 month's time.

That would be a last resort for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side who forked out £89million to bring him back to Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016.

Pogba was linked with a move away from United last summer but a £150million price-tag put off potential suitors.

Now his value is likely to have dropped to only around a third of that.

United are open to raising cash to bolster their own squad having already forked out £73m to sign Jadon Sancho.

Pogba has also been linked with a return to Juventus, as well as joining Spanish giants Real Madrid.
