Paris Saint-Germain are allegedly looking to sign Manchester United star Paul Pogba in this summer’s transfer market.
The 28-year-old midfielder is entering the final year of his deal and although the Red Devils would like to retain his services, there is no agreement as of yet to renew his deal.
Mauricio Pochettino wants to recruit more players to the French capital in the coming weeks, after already competing deals to sign Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldum and Sergio Ramos.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Parisians are hoping to raise at least £50 million from player sales, which the club can then use to purchase Paul, who they are interested in making their marquee signing.
Pogba is understood to have held talks with the Ligue 1 outfit and is close to agreeing to personal terms, though no official contact has yet been made between the French outfit and United.
If they fail in their pursuit of Pogba, then Paris Saint-Germain will likely turn ther attention to Rennes sensation Eduardo Camavinga, who is also being chased by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
Paul, who has also been mentioned with a return to Juventus, made 42 appearances in all competitions for United last term, netting six goals and providing nine assists.
Manchester United have handed a blow in their pursuit of Portugal legend Cristiano Ronaldo, according to a recent report from Express.
Juventus and Pairs Saint-Germain are in discussions over a swap deal that would see the former Red Devils attacker and Mauro Icardi switch clubs.
The Juventus forward is one of the best players in the history of football. Defying his age, the 36-year-old Cristiano continues to impress.
He netted 29 goals in 33 Serie A appearances for the Old Lady in an underwhelming season.
With the Bianconeri looking close to missing out on the UEFA Champions League, speculation over the superstar’s future was out in the open.
After all, his existing deal is scheduled to end next year and there have been no negotiations over a potential extension. It was here that a possible return to Manchester United was mooted.
However, it seems the Old Trafford outfit are set to face disappointment in their pursuit of Ronaldo. Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have entered the talks over a potential exchange deal.
It would see Cristiano take on a new challenge in France, whereas the former Inter Milan centre-forward and captain would return to Italy.
Everton reportedly hope to beat league rivals West Ham United to the landing of Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard after Rafael Benitez told his board to sign the England international.
The 29-year-old spent the second half of last term on loan at West Ham and the Hammers are interested in signing him on a permanent basis after the Englishman bagged nine goals in 16 appearances for the London outfit.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested Jesse will remain at Old Trafford next season to fight for his spot at the club but the manager could simply be trying to obtain a bigger sum for the playmaker, who has one year to run on his contract at the Theatre of Dreams.
The Hammers have baulked at United’s £25 million valuation of the attacking midfielder, particularly as money is tight at the club.
That’s opened the door for the Toffees, with Benitez interested in strengthening in wide zones at Goodison Park, according to the Sun.
The Toffees purchased Demarai Gray and Andros Towsend earlier this week but Lingard can play in a number of different positions, including behind a centre-forward.
United expect to finalise the transfer of Jadon Sancho this week, which will further increase the competition for places for Jesse at the club.
