Paul Pogba has reportedly received a huge proposal from PSG which would see him join the club next summer.

PSG had been expected to come in with an offer for the French midfielder in the current transfer window, but instead opted for Lionel Messi.

Pogba’s contract expires at the end of the season meaning the French giants could sign the 28-year-old on a free transfer next season.

According to The Independent, PSG are willing to offer Pogba €600,000 [£510,000] for the start of the 2022-23 season, in an attempt to lure him away from Manchester United.

PSG have taken advantage of similar situations this summer, signing Gini Wijnaldum from Liverpool and Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan on a free.

The same report suggests Pogba would favor a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona although the two clubs are dealing with financial issues which could prevent any signing.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed his desire for the Frenchman to stay at the club, which contradicts with Pogba showing ‘little interest’ in signing a contract extension.

Nonetheless, Solskjaer has insisted that the club would not cash in on Pogba to prevent the Frenchman from potentially exiting on a free next summer.

“No, of course not,” he said.

“I have always said with Paul that I enjoy managing him, I enjoy coaching him, I enjoy talking to him and I also enjoy challenging him because he is a winner. He wants to be better and that’s why he listens. You can see he’s enjoying himself here as well.

“He has a smile on his face. It’s important we treat each other with respect and I try to treat everyone with the same amount of respect. But there are some players you have known since they were young lads and that’s the case with Paul: the longer you have known them the easier it is to have a bond with them.”
