In most parts of Europe, there are 15 days left until the end of the football market, and we can already claim that Paris Saint-Germain has done the best transfer period this summer. And one of the best in the history of football, if not the best.
Achraf Hakimi opened it in a transfer worth 60,000,000 euros, and then Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma arrived from the factory line and Lionel Messi as the icing on the cake. All four without a cent in compensation.
The trend that sports director Leonardo plans to continue next year by bringing another sound name - Paul Pogba. And he prepared a clear plan on how to lure the French midfielder to Prince's Park. Of course, it's about money.
Namely, as the England Independent writes, the Parisians prepared a salary of 600,000 euros (weekly) in order to secure the signature of the Manchester United midfielder next summer and beat the competition, above all Real, in the race for the same.
In an identical way, let us remind you that they brought Wijnaldum, around whom Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman played in the previous year, only for Paris Saint-Germain to appear at the end of the season with a pair of money (allegedly offered twice as much as the Catalan club) and proved that that Dutch connection is not as unbreakable as the European media presented it.
In addition, the money that the Parisian club offers to the native Parisian is quite a good reason for Pogba not to extend his contract with Manchester United. Because according to the transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the English club recently "took" Pogba off the market and plans to extend his contract with him, so that they would not lose him next summer without euros in compensation, which would be a big loss for the club if we remember that before for five years they set aside 105,000,000 euros for him.
Allegedly, the leaders of United have already done several rounds of negotiations with his agent Mino Raiola regarding the extension of cooperation, but they ended in failure. Because of what could await him in Paris Saint-Germain, it is no wonder.
Because even though it is a gross amount (28,800,000 euros), even when the tax duties are deducted in the amount of 55 percent, Pogba would be one of the highest-paid football players in the Princes' Park, right after Lionel Messi, Neymar, somewhere on a par with Sergio Ramos and Kylian Mbappe.
