Man United to see announcement get made as Frenchman closing in on transfer move
Man United midfielder Paul Pogba is closing in on a move to Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports in France.
The Red Devils’ record signing returned to Old Trafford to much fanfare in 2016, and big things were expected of him after he impressed during his stint with Italian giants Juventus
However, despite some decent performances – he has not lived upto expectations at the club and has constantly been in the headlines linking him with a move back to Juventus – or a move to either Real Madrid and PSG
But with the France international’s contract set to run out in the summer, According to FootMercato, Pogba has now met with PSG’s sporting director Leonardo where he put forward the French club’s proposal.
The report claims that Pogba indicated that he and his family would be happy to move to Paris.
The news comes after Man United icon Wayne Rooney recently admitted that he believes that now is the right time for Pogba to leave: “I think it’s got to the point now where it’s probably better if he moves on,” Rooney told Sky Sports.
“If Paul is honest with himself, he’s probably not had the impact he would have liked since he returned.
“I watch him play for France and it’s a completely different player. His ability, his vision, control of the game is there in every game for France.
“It hasn’t quite worked for him at Manchester United and I think there’s a few players they need to let go.”
Pressed on why it hasn’t worked out for Pogba at Old Trafford, Rooney added: “There hasn’t been a settled manager since Alex Ferguson. So whoever comes in, they (the board) need to give him time to build up relationships with players.”
Pogba is now at that age of his career where he will not be getting better – the Red Devils had him at his prime and he never produced – so yes – now is the time to move on from the player
PSG could be the idea place for him to rediscover his form as he loves performing in front of the French fans
