Paul Pogba 'sets sights on PSG free transfer ahead of Juventus and Real Madrid' as he prepares for Man Utd exit

MANCHESTER UNITED star Paul Pogba wants to join Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, reports suggest.

Mundo Deportivo report that Pogba has told people close to him that he prefers to return to France after his United contract ends.

That works as a significant blow for Juventus and Real Madrid, who have also been keeping tabs on the star midfielder.

The France international played his last game for United last month against Liverpool at Anfield.

The 29-year-old hobbled off the pitch with a calf injury that will keep him sidelined for the rest of the campaign.

And there is no desire from either the Red Devils or Pogba to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

And PSG could be his next destination as the Ligue 1 champions are facing the prospect of losing Leandro Paredes.

Pogba is seen as an attractive replacement for Paredes in midfield but the French giants are a bit hesitant due to his injury history.

United are set for a major clearout ahead of incoming manager Erik ten Hag's arrival.
