Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe says any club would happily welcome his France teammate Paul Pogba.
Pogba has muted rumours he will sign for the French club by saying any contact that has been made has reached his agent, not him.
He has also pointed out he still has one year left on his contract for United and Kimpembe has said Pogba is more than capable of securing a deal wherever he wants one.
Kimpembe said: “I didn’t discuss [PSG] it with him.
“He’s a big boy, he doesn’t need anyone to make up his mind. Any club would be happy to welcome him.
“It only depends on him, his agent and his future club.”
However, earlier this month when Pogba, Kimpembe and Kingsley Coman faced the press they asked their teammate about where his future lies in club football.
Kimpembe said “we’re talking about Paris” with Coman adding “yeah, you’re a Parisian aren’t you?”.
Pogba responded “yeah so”, Kimpembe continued to press saying “the transfer window is soon” and Coman added “Nasser [PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi], any contact?”
The United man quickly shut down the conversation by replying “no” before leaving the situation with his teammates laughing.
Will Pogba stay at Man Utd? Comment below
Pogba signed for United in 2016 and while he has time on his deal left at the club, his agent Mino Raiola claimed earlier in the season the star isn’t happy.
He said: “I can say that it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United. Better to speak clearly, look ahead and not waste time looking for culprits: Paul at Manchester United is unhappy, he is no longer able to express himself as he would like and as expected of him.
“He has to change teams, he has to change the air. He has a contract that will expire in a year and a half, in the summer of 2022, but I think the best solution for the parties is to sell in the next market.
“Otherwise, the Old Trafford club, with whom relations are excellent, knows well that they would risk losing him on a free transfer, given that for the moment it is not the player’s intention to extend the contract.
“If someone doesn’t understand it, they understand very little about football. In any case, let them blame me if Paul leaves next summer.”
For now Pogba will concentrate on his job at hand, playing for France in the Euros.
His team’s opener will take place on Tuesday against Germany in what is being deemed the ‘Group of Death’.
France will also play Portugal and Hungary in the group stage.
