TOP STORY: Pogba unsure over future
Paris Saint-Germain are set to make an offer to Paul Pogba, according to the Daily Mail, however the midfielder is not ruling out staying at Manchester United.
The 28-year-old’s deal at Old Trafford expires in the summer, with the France international reportedly ready to wait until the end of the season to make a decision over his future. PSG are said to be keen to add the midfielder to their star-studded squad should he become a free agent, while a stay at Manchester United is still possible.
Pogba made the switch from Juventus for roughly £95 million in 2016, winning two League Cups and a Europa League in his time in Manchester. The midfielder has struggled slightly this season though, missing a portion of the campaign through injury. Calciomercato claims that Juve are ready to lure Pogba back to Serie A as Max Allegri looks to rebuild the Bianconeri, but only at the right price.
Pogba’s future, then, may be left undecided for the next few months, though his performances on the pitch and the results of Manchester United in the Premier League may have a big say on what could be next.
