Paul Pogba has been at Manchester United for five seasons and has one year left on his contract.
With an estimated rating of 60 million euros, it remains expensive, but affordable for the powerful of this world who would like to afford a 28-year-old all-terrain midfielder, expected to live his best years as a footballer soon.
But nothing is clear in this case piloted in part by his agent, the Italo-Dutchman Mino Raiola, who lives in Monaco.

Last season, he tried to place him at Real Madrid, a club where he does not have his entries, unlike the Portuguese Jorge Mendes, his rival in the business.
This summer, we lend him the desire to squeeze him into PSG, because the Raiola-Leonardo axis has been working wonderfully for several years.
The sporting director negotiated with him the arrivals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic or even Maxwell and is currently putting the finishing touches to the contract of Gianluigi Donnarumma, the goalkeeper of the Italian selection who will soon sign up for Paris.
Marco Verratti also chose him as an advisor.
His power within the club has been sitting for a decade.
There remains the question of whether PSG really needs Pogba, even if all the great players, especially those from the Ile-de-France region, are obviously welcome within a club which has already sought in the past. to enlist him.
Leo has just snatched Georginio Wijnaldum from Barcelona, free from any contract with Liverpool.
There is still Leandro Paredes, Gana Gueye, Ander Herrera, Danilo Pereira and of course Verratti.
Many torchbearers, few purely defensive midfielders, which is not the Mancunien either.
According to our information, PSG is following the Pogba file very carefully and will position itself if it senses an opening, or from Manchester, or from the player.

Beyond the agreed speech, we must remember the words of his agent at the end of 2020, telling of a supposed spite in England. “Paul is not happy in Manchester, he can no longer express himself as he would like, said Raiola in December. He has to change teams, places. I think the best solution for all parties is a sale at the next transfer window. The Old Trafford club know they would risk losing him for € 0, given the player's intention is not to extend his contract. “An intervention to put into perspective and take as a usual pressure stroke from the player's representative, who wants to wake up his employer to get active.
