France star, Paul Pogba is set to leave Old Trafford this summer. Pogba will leave Manchester United on a free transfer and sign a four-year contract at PSG this summer, reports say. The France international player is out of contract at the end of the season and is yet to agree on fresh terms, meaning he will be free to join another club for nothing.
PSG thinks the signing of Pogba will go some way towards mitigating the damage caused by the expected departure of Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid.
