Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly initiated talks with Paul Pogba's representatives over a potential summer move.

Pogba has just one year left on his contract at Manchester United, and has not yet agreed on a new deal with the club. The Frenchman has continued to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with Juventus, Real Madrid, and PSG cited as interested suitors.

According to the Daily Mail, who quote the Sun, Pogba's agents have greenlighted a move out of United this summer, as the 28-year-old is ready to "move on and experience something new".

RMC in France further claim that Pogba is "more than open" to signing for Mauricio Pochettino's side, and would "relish" the prospect of joining PSG's project. The Ligue 1 giants snapped up Gini Wijnaldum on a free from Liverpool earlier this month, and are looking to finalise a deal with United and Mino Raiola for Pogba. The player's agent shares a good relationship with PSG sporting director Leonardo, and that could potentially help the transfer happen.

Real Madrid do not have the funds to sign the midfielder this summer, while Juventus could also struggle to come up with the fee to convince the Red Devils to part with one of their key players. Despite a slow start to last season, Pogba was a key player in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, and scored a key goal against Milan in the run up to the final of the Europa League.

Speaking back in December 2020, Raiola made a public statement that his client "has to change teams" and "has to clear the air". He told Tuttosport: "He has a contract that will expire in a year and a half, in the summer of 2022, but I believe the best solution for the parties is to sell in the next market.

"Otherwise, the club, with whom relations are excellent, knows well that they would risk losing him on a free transfer, given that for the moment it is not the player's intention to extend the contract."
