Paris Saint-Germain are reviving their interest in Paul Pogba in case France teammate Kylian Mbappe signs for Real Madrid this summer, according to reports.
Speculation over the future of those two players, who helped France win the World Cup in 2018 – has been a continuous hot topic throughout the ongoing window.
Now into the final 12 months of their deals with Manchester United and PSG respectively, an identical conundrum to cash in or play the waiting game has fallen on those clubs in question.
La Liga giants Real are said to have launched an initial £137million bid for Mbappe.
A response has yet to be issued from the French side, but in the event he does move to Spain before the window slams shut on Tuesday evening (11pm UK time) ESPN are reporting that transfer would in turn shine a green light on this fresh approach for Pogba.
Earlier in the window, the United midfielder rejected a new contract offer to extend his stay at Old Trafford.
That was thought to be worth around £50million to the player, while PSG halted their initial interest after signing Barcelona icon Lionel Messi on a free transfer.
Pogba has started the season in fine form for United and has registered five assists in two Premier League games.
Meanwhile, as key figures responsible for incomings and outgoings at Old Trafford continue their search for a new defensive midfielder, United might still snap-up Ruben Neves from Wolves before the window closes.
That’s according to Eurosport guru Dean Jones – as per this report in The Telegraph – who claims United have done their homework on the Portugal international.
