NEYMAR ASKS POGBA OVER PSG PROSPECT
Just imagine yer Da’s fury at the prospect of Neymar and Paul Pogba linking up together for PSG…
That’s the prospect that has been discussed between the two stars, apparently, amid Pogba’s continued unrest at Manchester United.
Barcelona has been Pogba’s preferred destination but there are questions over whether the Catalans can afford the transfer fee, the player’s wages and a fat commission for Mino Raiola.
So, according to Goal, Neymar has been on the phone to Pogba to check whether he fancies moving to PSG.
Neymar has been linked with an exit from the Ligue 1 champions, but that didn’t stop him dialling Pogba’s digits late last month, apparently.
PSG have money worries of their own in that they’ve got bloody loads of it, but they can’t spend it without UEFA breathing down their necks.
ARSENAL’S ALMIRON DEAL DONE?
Arsenal are chugging along quite nicely at the moment, even if there is still plenty for Unai Emery to chew on. One of the new manager’s concerns centres around the strength in depth of his squad but reinforcements may be on the way from MLS.
Atlanta United midfielder Miguel Almiron is destined to move to the Emirates in January for around £11.4million. That is the claim attributed to MLS club’s president Darren Eales, at least.
He supposedly told FOX Deportes USA: “Almiron’s future is already decided and will go to England in the European winter market.”
Almiron is a Paraguay international midfielder who has had a direct hand in 25 goals in 31 MLS appearances this season. The 24-year-old has scored 12 and assisted another 13.
