In spite of his back and forth with United, the 2018 World Cup winner remains one of the best midfielders in the world at the moment.

The Argentine is convinced he can launch a successful swoop for the unsettled United playmaker and beat Real Madrid and Juventus to his signature.

Real have been linked with a move for Pogba, who cost United a club-record fee of about £83 million in 2016 when they re-signed him from Juve.

But the Spanish champions have persistently failed to meet the Reds’ £100m-plus valuation, leaving Pogba in transfer limbo two years on the spin.

The Old Lady are still interested yet would struggle to match the sort of personal terms likely to be on the table for him at loaded PSG.
