Paul Pogba reportedly agreed a huge deal with Paris Saint-Germain before deadline day

The French midfielder reportedly agreed to a staggering £429,000-a-week deal (about R7 million) with PSG, but was left frustrated to stay in England for yet another season after Neymar’s move to his former club Barcelona failed to materialize.

According to Daily Mail, United boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was open to the idea of selling the French midfielder, who’s had mixed years since returning to the club from Juventus in 2016.

Pogba, 26, has already been on the receiving end from the club’s fans after missing a penalty in their 1-1 draw away to Wolves last month.

He has been an ever-present figure in Ole’s team though they have made a scuppering start in this term, winning just one out of four encounters.
