Paris Saint-Germain have made Paul Pogba their final target as Mauricio Pochettino’s summer rebuild nears completion.
The French giants have had a very busy market as they look to claim the Champions League title once and for all in the 2021/22 campaign.The Argentine has already landed seasoned veteran Sergio Ramos from Real Madrid, while Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament Gianluigi Donnarumma has joined on a free transfer from AC Milan.PSG also beat Chelsea to the signature of Achraf Hakimi, who is regarded as one of the best right-wing backs in world football, and Georgino Wijnaldum, who joined after his contract at Liverpool expired.But Pogba, who is believed to be keen to leave United, has been identified as the last piece of the jigsaw and the man who can spearhead PSG to glory in Europe.The World Cup winner won’t come cheap, though, as the Red Devils want to keep him and are trying to tie him down to a new deal, with his current contract expiring at the end of the next campaign.
Therefore, Poch needs to sell some players in order to land the Frenchman.
But who is on the chopping block at the Parc des Princes?
According to Get French Football News, in their bid to raise funds PSG are open to offers for any player other than the new signings and Keylor Navas, Presnel Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Marco Verratti, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
This means a whole host of big names are in the shop window, including defenders Thilo Kehrer, Juan Bernat and Layvin Kurzawa, midfielders Leandro Paredes, Idrissa Gueye and Ander Herrera, and attackers Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler, Pablo Sarabia and Mauro Icardi.
Di Maria is arguably the most attractive name from that group.
He’s in the tail-end of his career but still an incredible player and could be a good signing for any top Premier League side.
Former Everton ace Gueye is Premier League proven, could United swoop in to sign him as a cheaper alternative to Declan Rice or Leon Goretzka?
It is understood United will demand around £50m for Pogba, who has his heart set on move to Paris.
