Pogba approaches final days at United as PSG make bid

Paris Saint-Germain have made an offer to French midfielder Paul Pogba as he prepares to leave Manchester United.

The terms are understood to be lower than the final package United offered Pogba in a vain attempt to convince the midfielder to stay at the club.

The 29-year-old is open to joining PSG but is understood to prefer a return to Juventus. Real Madrid’s interest has subsided significantly since former coach Zinedine Zidane left last year.

PSG signed Georginio Wijnaldum, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi when their contracts expired in the summer while Juventus are renowned for signing ‘free’ transfers, with Pogba one of their first high-profile coups when he ran down his first contract at United in 2012.

Pogba said last week he had not made a decision on his future. “Nothing is decided on my future, there is nothing done,” Pogba told Telefoot. “I can decide tomorrow, as I can decide during the transfer window. I want to come back, finish the season well.

“The season is not over yet, but almost because we don’t have any more titles to play for. I want to win titles, to play for something and this year and the last few years we haven’t won a title. It’s sad.”
