Georginio Wijnaldum has admitted he would love to play alongside Paul Pogba at Paris Saint-Germain and described the Manchester United midfielder as "one of the best in the world".

Pogba is in the final year of his contract and has so far refused to agree to a new deal. PSG are one of several clubs interested in signing the Frenchman, and Wijnaldum has talked up a potential move.

“I would love to have Pogba with us,” Wijnaldum told RMC Sport. “He’s fantastic. I have played against him several times – what a player! “If you ask any player from another team if he would like Pogba to join him, everyone will say yes because he is an extraordinary player, full of qualities.

"He has it all. He's one of the best midfielders in the world. But the way I see football and last year I saw it a lot: when a lot of players get injured and you always have to play with the same players, it's hard.

"There are so many games between the league, the cups, Europe, that you not only need a good eleven but also a good rotation. That’s how we form the best possible team. You need all the players for a season. Coming back to your question, yes, I would love to have Paul Pogba with us here because he’s a great player."

The Daily Mail reported earlier this week that Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, is reportedly discussing personal terms with PSG, who believe they can sign the 28-year-old for less than half the £89m he cost United in 2016.
