Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly confident of signing Paul Pogba from Manchester United this summer.

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 believe they can sign the Frenchman for half of the £89m he cost United in 2016.

The 28-year-old has less than 12 months left on his contract at Old Trafford, and according to The Telegraph, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are expecting a bid from the Ligue 1 giants for the midfielder before the ongoing transfer window ends.

The report adds that PSG believe they can lure Pogba to France for just £43m, and have been negotiating with his agent, Mino Raiola, over a potential move.

Newly-signed PSG player Georginio Wijnaldum has admitted he would love to play alongside Pogba at the Parc des Princes, and described the United midfielder as "one of the best in the world".

“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."
