Paul Pogba assesses free transfer offers from Juventus, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain

Pogba is yet to decide on his future

The Daily Telegraph is reporting on Paul Pogba’s future after Manchester United confirmed the player will leave Old Trafford this summer after his contract runs out. The 29-year-old World Cup winner is most likely to join his former club Juventus on a free transfer, but Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested.

Paper Round’s point of view: Pogba was a huge disappointment at United but with Juventus and France he showed a lot of talent. While Serie A is an easier league, the club was also ready to win and there were more talented players around Pogba. Returning to Italy would give him a more relaxed environment to play in, but the competition there is much more intense now.

Spurs refuse Dybala

The Daily Mail believe Tottenham have turned down the chance to sign Paulo Dybala, with the 28-year-old Argentine now a free agent after his contract at Juventus expired at the end of the season. Dybala wants a contract worth £280,000 a week which is too much for Spurs, but Inter Milan have offered £260,000 a week, while Manchester United and Arsenal are also interested.

Paper Round’s point of view: It looks like Dybala’s demands will be impossible for Juventus to meet if they also accept Pogba’s capture, so the Argentine striker will have to look elsewhere. Inter are said to be keen on bringing Romelu Lukaku back from Chelsea, but at least initially only on loan. His goalscoring record suggests it’s worth betting on one of the three.

Arsenal confident about Jesus

Arsenal believe a £40million bid for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus will be enough to convince City to let him go. The 25-year-old Brazil international is keen to settle his future quickly and doesn’t plan to stay as Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland will leave him in the pecking order. Arsenal also want Youri Tielemans from Leicester City.

Paper Round’s point of view: Both Tielemans and Jesus would help improve creativity in midfield and up front, and they are both relatively affordable. After missing the Champions League at the end of the season, Mikel Arteta has a reduced transfer budget and he will have to prioritize his key positions, and hope to raise money through sales.

Nunez could replace Martial

The Mirror are reporting that Manchester United striker Anthony Martial is set to leave the club. The 26-year-old Frenchman has been loaned out to Sevilla for the final half of the season but the Spaniards are unwilling to shell out to make the deal permanent. He is expected to find another club which would free up a place in the squad for Benfica’s Darwin Nunez.

Paper Round’s point of view: Nunez is likely to be a massive upgrade over Martial, but the 22-year-old will cost a hefty sum, so United will have to hope they can sell his forward contract for a decent amount. While Martial has shown his talent at United at times, he has failed to convince playing in the middle and has made little progress in recent seasons.
