Wijnaldum wants ‘fantastic’ Pogba to leave Man Utd

Paris Saint-Germain star Georginio Wijnaldum has hailed Paul Pogba as “one of the best midfielders in the world” amid rumours the Manchester United man could move to the French giants.

The Frenchman has reportedly rejected the offer of a new £350,000-a-week deal by United and PSG are said to be interested in signing him this summer.

Pogba has just one year remaining on his current contract at Old Trafford and reports suggest United would be willing to part with the 28-year-old if they are offered a suitable transfer fee.

£50million is the figure quoted by various outlets, with PSG said to be keen on a £45million deal.

Pogba was in fine form for France at Euro 2020 and has generally performed better for his national team than in the red of United, where he has struggled for form and consistency, and has been frequently criticised for failing to make the most of his talent.

And Wijnaldum – who has joined PSG on a free transfer from Liverpool this summer – says Pogba would be a great signing for his new club having witnessed his enviable ability first hand in games against him in the Premier League.

Speaking to RMC Sport, Wijnaldum said: “I would love to have Pogba with us.

“He’s fantastic. I have played against him several times – what a player!

“If you ask any player from another team if he would like Pogba to join him, everyone will say yes because he is an extraordinary player, full of qualities.

“He has it all, one of the best midfielders in the world.”

PSG have had a quite brilliant transfer window so far, securing the signings of Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos and Wijnaldum on free transfers, as well as Moroccan wing-back Achraf Hakimi for £54million.

And landing Pogba on top of that quartet would surely make Mauricio Pochettino’s side favourites to win the Champions League next season, a competition they have made no secret of being desperate to win.

They were knocked out in the semi-finals by Manchester City last season and lost the Ligue 1 title to Lille.

Bayern left-back Davies admits Man Utd star is ‘better’ than him

Bayern left-back Davies admits Man Utd star is ‘better’ than him

Bayern Munich full-back Alphonso Davies has admitted that Man Utd defender Luke Shaw is ‘clear’ of himself, meaning that he thinks he is clearly better than him.

Shaw enjoyed a splendid 12 months, by far the best of his career. He was a standout for Man Utd as they finished runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League, runners-up to Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League, and runner-up at UEFA EURO 2020 with England.

Davies on the other hand endured a slightly less colourful season as he struggled for a first-team place ahead of Lucas Hernandez. In the year prior, Davies enjoyed a mainstay role in the Bayern Munich treble-winning side as well as a spot in the UEFA Team Of The Year squad. 



Davies was full of praise for the Man Utd and England man. Davies said on his official TikTok account:

“I just saw one that was like ‘Luke Shaw is clear’. What does that mean? Someone explain to me. I never really understood that – clear of what?”

He then read out a reply in the chat: “That means he’s better.

“Ohhh! Ohh, OK, I get it now, it means he’s better. Yeah, I mean, he is, he’s a really good player!

“Alright, so every time you say like ‘Luke Shaw is clear, Robbo [Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson] is clear, that means he’s better’. OK, makes sense, makes sense.”

Shaw is finally living up to the £30m price tag the Red Devils paid for the 26-year-old back in 2014. He saw a relatively established name around Europe in Alex Telles come in to which he took this as a challenge and beat it in convincing style.

Telles seems to be already ready to move on from Old Trafford just one year after he joined and that’s very much down to the form and exemplary fitness of Shaw.

Man Utd are active in the transfer market with incoming and outgoings, the big news right now is Jadon Sancho and Real Madrid defender Raphaël Varane who are the marquee targets for the club this summer.
