PSG demand one Man United star in case Neymar joins Red Devils

Paris Saint-Germain have earmarked Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba as a prospective replacement for Neymar, according to a report.

Brazil star Neymar is believed to be pining for a summer departure from the Parc des Princes amid purported interest from Champions League finalists Real Madrid.

Pogba’s future, meanwhile, remains in doubt after the Frenchman found himself at loggerheads with United boss Jose Mourinho on numerous occasions this season.

According to the Daily Star, should Real succeed in snapping up Neymar in a reported £250m deal, PSG will set aside £100m for a Pogba bid.

The report claims that the Parisians are mindful of Financial Fair Play rules and, alongside trying to sign Pogba, would use the remainder of the Neymar revenue to seal the permanent signing of Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.

Pogba is contracted to Old Trafford until 2021, though the Red Devils have the option of another year.

Meanwhile, Everton, Manchester United and Burnley are all listed as possible destinations for the veteran Ivorian.

Manchester United are among the early favourites to sign departing Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure, along with Everton and Burnley, according to Sky Bet.

Toure is leaving City after eight years at the end of his contract this summer and the Manchester Evening News reports that he is keen to remain in the north west.

Nearby Everton has been strongly discussed as a potential destination over the weekend, and it is perhaps unsurprisingly the Toffees who lead the betting at 3/1.

But at 5/1, a shock move across Manchester may not be out of the question for Toure – seven years after Owen Hargreaves (United to City) became the last player to move directly between the two clubs.

And with Europa League football secured for next season, a switch to Burnley at 6/1 should not be ruled out.
