Interest in Manchester United’s Paul Pogba fading?: PSG target Franck Kessie

Paul Pogba interests PSG

It was well documented throughout the summer that Paul Pogba was interesting French outfit Paris Saint Germain. As per The Athletic, the Ligue 1 side opened talks with Paul Pogba’s entourage, but subsequently moved their attentions to Lionel Messi when he became available.

The return of Pogba to Manchester United in the summer of 2016 for a club-record fee was greeted with much fanfare, but it is fair to say that the Frenchman has struggled to live up the hype in the North West.

And with only a year left on the contract signed upon arriving, could Pogba now be considering his options? Now 28 years old, the World Cup winner may be looking for one last top-level move in his career.

PSG chase Franck Kessie

However, Manchester United’s chances of keeping hold of their star man may have seemingly been handed a boost today, with reports from Italy suggesting PSG have opened negotiations with AC Milan over Ivorian midfielder Franck Kessie.

As per Santi Aouna:

“Leonardo and Maldini  discussed a possible negotiation next January, if ever Kessié  was determined to leave the club”

This follows the news that Kessie rejected a new deal at AC Milan, meaning that like Pogba, he could become a free agent in 12 months. As per Aouna, talks have begun to take Kessie to the Parc de Princes in January.

Should such a move materialise, it would surely cast doubt on a potential move for Paul Pogba.
