PSG want to sign Paul Pogba.
However, because of the possible complications surrounding any deal they might have to wait a year before signing him.
The French international is entering the final year of his current deal at Old Trafford, meaning that he is free to talk to clubs from abroad in January.
Initial feelers have been put out to the player’s representatives to gauge if he would be interested in a move to Paris, but there has been no approach to United themselves.
They are wary that they might be used as a pawn by Pogba’s agents to drive his value up, with United still harbouring hopes of tying him down to a new deal.
And, whilst their wage bill has been swollen by the recruitment this summer of Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Achraf Hakim, there is a limit to how far even their club finances will stretch.
Perhaps better to wait until there is no transfer fee to be paid, at least.
