PSG are reportedly closing on Paul Pogba after he reportedly turned down a huge new £50million Manchester United contract.
SunSport revealed the France midfielder’s agent Mino Raiola has already discussed personal terms with PSG ahead of a summer swoop.
Now the Mirror say United‘s £89m record buy has rejected a a lengthy new Old Trafford deal, including a pay rise from £250k a week to £350k.
That would leave Pogba, 28, far more likely to leave in this transfer window, rather than United losing him for nothing next summer.
Old Trafford chiefs had hoped for £50m if they are forced to sell the former Juventus superstar.
But PSG hope to secure a budget £40m move over the ace’s contract situation.
Raiola claimed last December ‘it’s over’ for Pogba at United as he ‘needs a change of scenery’ and was ‘unhappy’ there.
And at Euro 2020 Pogba insisted there was ‘no concrete proposal’ to keep him.
But Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been determined to extend Pogba’s stay, with a key role alongside Bruno Fernandes.

And Pogba had a mostly impressive second half of last season, reflecting United’s overall improvement.
But speculation over his future has long been rife, with Juve and Real Madrid courting him.
Now, though, PSG seem the most realistic option should he depart United this summer.
