PAUL POGBA is getting “closer” to agreeing a deal with Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports.
The Manchester United midfielder is out of contract at Old Trafford this summer and is able to freely negotiate with other clubs.
But they appear to have been leapfrogged by PSG.
According to Foot Mercato, Pogba is now the Ligue 1 leaders’ “priority” signing for this summer.
They add that he is “closer than ever” to joining Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Pogba, 29, is claimed to have already met with under-pressure PSG sporting director Leonardo.
Due to his high wage demands, competition for his signature is not as fierce as it once would have been.
Pogba is believed to be happy to move to PSG, with his family welcoming a return to France.
Man United made a lucrative last-ditch offer to try and convince Pogba to stay last October.
But he appears very unlikely to sign it.
Pogba has made 25 appearances for United in all competitions this season, having missed a chunk of the campaign with a hamstring injury.
He is yet to score this season, but has laid on nine assists.
He told Sky Sports: “I think it’s probably got to a point now probably it’s better for him to move on.
“And I think if Paul is honest with himself he probably hasn’t had the impact he would have liked since he returned to Manchester United.
“And I watch him play for France and it’s a completely different player, the ability and his vision, controlling the game is there every game for France.”
