Paris Saint-Germain are expected to formally form their interest in Paul Pogba in the near future, with Manchester United midfielder seemingly unlikely to sign a new contract at Old Trafford.
PSG will still make an offer to United for Pogba, although reports in France suggest they have made contact with his representatives.
The 28-year-old has entered the last 12 months of his contract and United risk losing him for a second time on a free transfer if they do not sell him this summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Saturday that the club remained in talks with Pogba’s camp over a new deal, explaining: “The talks are continuing between Paul’s representatives and the club’s representatives.
“Everything I’ve ever heard with Paul, he’s looking forward to the season.”
Pogba is expected to return to United’s training camp after his move to Euro 2020 next Monday.
PSG are hoping to charge players including former United midfielder Ander Herrera plus Sergio Rico and Alphonse Areola to help finance Pogba.
The French side have already been busy in the transfer market this summer, signing Euro 2020 player Gianluigi Donnarumma, Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum over free transfers.
They have also added Inter Milan winger Achraf Hakimi and made Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira’s loan permanent.
