Paul Pogba transfer to PSG, what it means for Man U and PSG?

Manchester United ace Paul Pogba is expected to be on a move this summer as he has rejected a new contract with his current side Manchester United, possibly moving to the French giants Paris Saint-Germain who’re on a signing spree as they’ve already signed a bunch of superstars such as Spanish and Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos, who left the club after 16 years to join the French side on a free transfer. Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool, also for free, whom the Parisian club reportedly “hijacked” from La Liga side FC Barcelona by offering him twice the wage and rightly so as he’s lately been in great form and showcased his potential in Euros and would also fit perfectly in the midfield along with the likes of Marco Verratti, Julian Draxler and Ángel Di María. And lastly, the Italian youngster Gianluigi Donnarumma from A.C Milan again as a free agent, who is expected to start in goal ahead of Keylor Navas and offering him a salary of whooping €12 million per season. He’s recently won the Euros with his national side and was a hero in the Semi-finals vs Spain and The Final vs England by saving several penalties.

The only player they paid for is Moroccan Full-back Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan for an initial €60 million, potentially rising by €11 million in add-ons. 

It seems like it’s Mission Champions League for PSG as they’re still looking to sign players. However, in the case of Paul Pogba, who still has a year left in his contract, Manchester United won’t let him go until PSG offers them a handful of money. Although, if he wants to go, now is the best time to leave as he’ll never be this much worth it again. He’s also had a good European championship. And the fact that he is far better in the blue shirt of France than he is usually in the red shirt of Manchester United might just edge him to leave the Premier League side. 

Manchester United didn’t quite use him to his full potential as he was mostly played out wide on the left flank whereas his usual position should be either in the holding midfield or attacking.

The English side should sit down and think about has he really come off as a big signing for us or do we bite the bullet here and cash in as he’s not performed up to his potential for over a season now. And if they’re letting him go, they should look for a long-term replacement for him as those are some big shoes to fill.

Although, on the other hand, he’s the type of player that they’re gonna need if they’re going to challenge Manchester City, Chelsea, and Liverpool for the Premier League title. 

However, from PSG’s perspective, if they got the money (which they do), they definitely should sign him if they have their eyes on the bigger picture. The likes of Pogba, Ramos, Donnarumma, Hakimi, Wijnaldum joining the superstars in Neymar, Mbappé, Di María. Looks like one hell of a team on paper but possibly with a lot of egos. But all in all, it might just help them to win their first-ever Champions League, having got very close multiple times in the last decade.
