Paris Saint-Germain now the clear favourites to sign Juve ace, not Manchester United

Paul Pogba

After David Moyes sacking, PSG have become the firm favourites to sign Juventus ace Paul Pogba.

Juventus have earmarked a number of players they would like to bring in this summer. To do that they first thing they need to do is raise money, and and fund this spending spree the Bianconeri are coming round to the idea of selling star midfielder Paul Pogba says the Gazzetta dello Sport.

A somewhat quick sale would mostly likely see Manchester United miss out on a possible move and French champions Paris Saint-Germain become the favourites to land his signature this summer.

Laurent Blanc and the Qatari Sports Investment owners are very keen to load PSG with top French stars if they can, giving the Parisian side a French spine and try and make them one of Europe’s elite clubs, but using young grown talent. President Nasser Al-Khelaifi did say when he first arrived that he wanted PSG to develop their own Lionel Messi. That might still be a few years off, but what they could do is spend big money in bringing in one of Europe’s best young players.

Paul Pogba is likely to form a midfield partnership with Blaise Matuidi and Yohan Cabaye in Brazil this summer, and if the trio perform well at the World Cup the chances of Blanc wanting to bring the Juventus midfielder to Paris to continue the partnership is going to increase with every game. However, they may want to make a move before the World Cup starts as Pogba has every chance of being one of the tournaments stars, and to wait could just put his price up even further.

The players has often taken swipes at Manchester United and the way that he was treated and used at the club, a new manager is unlikely to change his mind, and a new manager will likely not be installed in time to discuss any potential move with Pogba as PSG are ready and willing to dive into any sort of talks/

Under the shimmering lights of the Eiffel Tower, Pogba would become an absolute hero to the Parisian public. They may already have the likes of Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but to have one of Europe’s best players – who just so happens to be French - playing at the Parc des Prince, would be a huge image boost to everyone based in Parc des Princes.
