Report: PSG president makes verbal proposal to Paul Pogba

0 Comments

According to seasoned Gianluca di Marzio writer David Amoyal, Paris Saint-Germain has continued to push towards a summer move for young Juventus star Paul Pogba.

While no written offer has been submitted just yet, talks are ongoing as Amoyal reports PSG hosted a chat between Pogba and club president Nasser Al Khelaifi where initial proposals were discussed.

PSG is in the midst of a transfer ban thanks to Financial Fair Play violations, but because transfer bans are actually structured as registration bans, the club could make a move as long as it was able to then loan him out until the ban expired. The report states they are hoping to work with Juventus to keep him in Turin on loan, which could prove problematic.

Despite Juventus’s competition in the Champions League semifinals, Pogba is out injured for the rest of the season, giving him time to travel for meetings with other clubs. The 22-year-old midfielder had collected seven goals in 22 Serie A appearances before a thigh injury shut him down. With Pogba in the lineup, Juventus lost just once in those 22 matches. Since his injury, Juventus has lost twice in five games, although some of that may have to do with the 14-point league lead having a snoozing affect on the players.

Pogba just signed a contract extension back in August that technically keeps him under club control through the summer of 2019. While that doesn’t cause suitors to give up the chase, it does allow the Italian giants to ensure they can demand a top price for the former Manchester United youngster.
