Manchester United set Paul Pogba asking price amid PSG interest

Manchester United set Paul Pogba asking price amid PSG interest

Pogba & Manchester United

On the whole, Paul Pogba enjoyed a fairly decent 2020/21 campaign.

The Frenchman had a couple of injury issues, which saw him miss some games.

But when fit, for the most part, Pogba looked in fine form – with the midfielder having provided five assists and three goals in 26 Premier League appearances.

Despite Pogba having been enjoying a decent season, though, agent Mino Raiola claimed back in December that his client was unhappy at Old Trafford, and that it was ‘over’ for him at Manchester United.

This was followed by Raiola once again attempting to drum up speculation surrounding a potential move to Real Madrid for his client.

Then, last month, the subject of Pogba’s future was again brought to the fore.

ESPN claimed that Man United were set to seek talks with the French international, amid fears that he would run down his contract and leave on a free transfer.

This has again seen the midfielder’s future at Old Trafford called into question. In recent weeks, both Juventus and PSG have been linked with Pogba.

Pogba’s asking price

Now, a fresh media update surrounding Pogba suggests that Man United have opened to selling their most expensive ever signing.

The Mirror, citing French outlet L’Equipe, report that the Red Devils are willing to part ways with the Frenchman for the correct fee.

Old Trafford chiefs are said to be in contract talks with Pogba at present. But, as they fear he could leave for free, those in a position of power at Man United are understood to have agreed on a £51m asking price for the midfielder.

That sum may seem fairly high for a player who only has 12 months left on his contract. However, the Mirror go on to add that PSG have not been put off, and will go on to lodge a sufficient bid to sign Pogba ahead of next season.
