Paul Pogba transfer news: Solskjaer to target Man City’s target as Pogba’s replacement as Manchesteer United seeks midfield reinforcements.
Paul Pogba is on the verge of leaving Manchester United this summer as lucrative offer from Real Madrid is inciting the player to make a move to Spain.
On the other hand, French International’s departure might further widen the void in midfield after the departure of Ander Herrera and possible send off to Juan Mata.
Moreover, Toni Kroos signing a contract extension with Real Madrid has crushed Ole Solskjaer’s dream to land the German International, in order to end his midfield miseries.
Thus, it is reported by the L’Equipe that Manchester United are vying with other European giants to hire the services of Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
The 22-year-old has gathered the attention of several European clubs, including PSG, Manchester city, Tottenham and Manchester United. Further, the Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas has affirmed about being in contact with multiple clubs for the midfielder.
However, it is further reported that Manchester United have stalled their chase for the young sensation as they first want to clarify Pogba’s future at the club.
The French International is being targetted by Zinedine Zidane, as reportedly Pogba is the top priority for the Real Madrid manager this summer amid his plans of squad overhaul.
Despite it, there have been no further advancements in the deal and Pogba’s future at Manchester United is still uncertain.
On the other side, various other reports also suggest that Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is favouring to sign Christian Eriksen in place of Pogba as he seems as an economical option, since the Danish International is in the last year of his contract with Tottenham.
Additionally, it seems that the Red Devils want to balance their account by Paul Pogba’s departure fee before they splash £88 million demanded by Lyon for Ndombele.
Although, Manchester United would soon have to take a call on the player, as PSG are advancing in the pursuit of Ndombele as a recent statement by Jean-Michael Aulus signaled a preference towards Les Parisiens’ offer.
