Good afternoon Man Utd fans
Paris Saint-Germain have made an official approach to Paul Pogba, according to the Manchester Evening News’ Samuel Luckhurst.
The United correspondent reports that PSG have presented a package to Pogba’s representatives that includes a salary lower than what is currently on the table to remain at Old Trafford.
The French midfielder is open to a move to his country’s capital, although is believes to favour a move back to former club Juventus.
And United are said to be already eyeing up his replacement, with Lazio ace Sergej Milinkovic-Savic on their shortlist.
The 27-year-old’s contract is ticking down, and it’s understood that the Rome outfit want to cash in before he – like Pogba – walks away for nothing.
Corriere dello Sport report that United have enquired about the Serbia international’s services.
In other news, United’s hopes of signing Ronald Araujo in the summer have been dealt a huge blow after it emerged that the centre-back was now willing to sign a new contract with Barcelona.
It had previously been reported that the Uruguayan was up for grabs after talks with Barca over a new deal had stalled.
And finally, Wayne Rooney has claimed that Manchester United’s academy “didn’t exist” under Jose Mourinho.
Appearing on Monday Night Football, Wazza said: “The distance between the academy and the first team and the manager, especially under Mourinho, was huge.
“It was almost as if they didn’t exist, if you like. Having the relationship they had with Sir Alex for 26 years and then not being allowed anywhere near the first team…
“It’s almost like there was a divorce between the first team and the academy.”
