“What a player”: Georginio Wijnaldum urges Paul Pogba to join PSG

Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba has been urged to make the switch to PSG by Georginio Wijnaldum, who recently joined the French outfit.

Speaking to RMC Sport, as relayed by Goal.com, newly-signed Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has called on Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba to follow him to the French capital.

Wijnaldum signed for PSG earlier this summer on a free transfer after his contract with Liverpool ran out at the end of the season. Les Parisiens have been making great waves in the market this summer, having also signed Achraf Hakimi, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma, apart from the Netherlands international.

Following the impressive acquisitions, PSG’s sights are now firmly on Manchester United mainstay Paul Pogba. The Frenchman, who has now completed five years in his second spell at Old Trafford, is entering the final year of his contract with the Red Devils, sparking a flurry of speculations surrounding his future.

PSG are said to be among the clubs that are most interested in the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner. And now, Wijnaldum has opened the doors for Pogba to return to France this summer, insisting that he would be a brilliant addition to the team at Parc des Princes.

“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,” the former Liverpool star said.

Pogba has proven to be quite a divisive figure at Manchester United. A world-beater on his day, the Frenchman has not been able to produce those levels of performances on a consistent basis. But he played a key role in the Red Devils finishing second in the Premier League last term and going as far as the finals of the UEFA Europa League.

So, naturally, Manchester United are said to be intent on tying him down to a new contract this summer. But the 28-year-old insisted last month that there had been no concrete contract proposal as of yet. If the situation persists, the 20-time English champions risk losing Pogba on a free transfer next year.
