PSG raise funds to sign Pogba (at a reduced price)
Pogba is would have the main target (again) for PSG, as Ligue 1 prepare to sell a handful of players to raise the $ 70million they say will be needed to sign him from Manchester United.
With only one year on his current contract at Old Trafford, Pogba will effectively decide his long-term future over the next six weeks, by the end of the summer transfer window. If the 28-year-old accepts a new Manchester United contract offer, he obviously stays.
But according to a new report from our partners in the UK at Sky Sports, it is increasingly unlikely that Pogba will sign a new contract with United, which has given PSG hope of securing a deal for the French superstar.
If he rejects all of the Red Devils’ offers, he is almost certain to leave the club. Ideally, Pogba and Manchester United will answer question no. 1 with plenty of time to spare before the deadline, in order to strike a deal for the club to recoup still-significant transfer fees (lest they go to PSG for nothing in 12 months) and for Pogba to get the last mega-contract of his early years, as it should be.
Manchester United make a pre-‘offer’ to Goretzka
Speaking of Manchester United and one-year contract midfielders, Bayern Munich star Leon Goretzka is would have a long-term answer to the question “Who replaces Pogba if / when he leaves?” “
Like Pogba, Goretzka still has 12 months on his contract, but Manchester United are reportedly already in contact with the 26-year-old’s representatives to make an unofficial “offer”. By allegedly putting a theoretical future offer on the metaphorical table, Manchester United are, in effect, offering directly against Bayern Munich to win Goretzka’s next contract: either re-signing and starting that deal now, or declining and the terms of five years begin. within a year.
An interesting twist: If Manchester United are able to secure a pre-deal on a pre-contract deal with Goretzka, signing him with no transfer fees next summer would effectively make up for the loss of fees if Pogba left with a free transfer in same time. Even with some assurances, it’s a risky game that could hurt them at any time over the next six months, but Goretzka’s signing could be the kind of transformational move that helps put Manchester United back at the top of the league hierarchy. Premier League.

Bale has MLS offer, wants to stay at Real Madrid
Bale reportedly has offers from several MLS teams to move to the United States this summer, but the 32-year-old has instead would have has decided to see the last 12 months of his contract with Real Madrid before moving on next summer, when virtually the same offers (sharply reduced compared to his $ 42 million a year contract at Madrid) will still be on the cards. Table.
Real Madrid have agreed to pay Bale so much money for such a long time, and they would like to get it back. All.
Gil to Tottenham, Lamela to Sevilla as part of an exchange
Erik Lamela is set to leave Tottenham Hotspur as part of a reported exchange deal for Spanish midfielder Bryan Gil. Tottenham will also include nearly $ 30million with Lamela, who leaves with a one-year contract and eight years after arriving as part of the cash windfall after – you guessed it – Bale’s move to Real Madrid.
Gil spent the 2020-21 season on loan at relegated La Liga Eibar, where he scored four goals and assisted three more.
