Manchester United

Reds turn down PSG Pogba swap offer

22nd July 2019, 05:32 by Michael Holland

Manchester United have rejected an offer from Paris Saint-Germain to swap Neymar for Reds midfielder Paul Pogba, reports claim.

Pogba's future at Old Trafford has been in the spotlight all summer, and there is no sign of the rumours ending with Real Madrid, Juventus and now PSG all keen to try and strike a deal with the Reds.

Neymar, like Pogba, is keen to move on this summer and PSG have decided it would be better to grant him his wish, rather than run the risk of him causing unrest in the dressing room for the forthcoming season.

Despite interest from former club Barcelona, Neymar remains in Paris for now, but they have been trying to sort a deal and have offered him to all of Europe's top clubs, including United.

Reports suggest that PSG wanted Pogba, plus a cash adjustment, for Neymar, but United have turned down because of the finances involved in the deal.

It has been suggested they would have to pay £30million on top of Pogba to do the deal and United think that is too much.
