Paul Pogba’s Reaction When Asked About ‘Contact’ With PSG By Kimpembe & Coman
Paul Pogba quickly darted from a press conference after being asked about a Paris Saint-Germain transfer by France teammates Presnel Kimpembe and Kingsley Coman.
The Manchester United midfielder’s deal runs out in 2022 and he is yet to commit to a new deal at Old Trafford.
Pogba decided to gatecrash Kimpembe and Coman speaking to reporters and they decided to get rid of him with transfer speculation.
Kimpembe said “We’re talking about Paris”, and Coman added “Yeah, you’re Parisian aren’t you?”
Kimpembe: “We’re talking about Paris”
Coman: “Yeah.. You are Parisian aren’t you?”
Pogba: “Yes, so?”
Coman: “Nasser, contact?”
Kimpembe: “The transfer window is soon”
Coman: “Any contact?”
Pogba: “Huh? No” :runner:♂️:joy:

A nonchalant Pogba replied “Yeah so?”
PSG vice-captain Kimpembe continued “The transfer window is soon,” while Coman, a former PSG youth player, referenced club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi by saying “Nasser, any contact?”
Pogba sheepishly looked to the camera with his arms around their shoulders before saying “No” and walking off, with Kimpembe and Coman left in a fit of laughter.
While the comments were clearly made in jest, fans on social media have reacted.

There is a growing belief Pogba is ready to commit his future to United, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sounding optimistic back in March.
He stated per FourFourTwo: “We’ve got a good open dialogue with Paul so what we talk about and how we see that situation remains between us.
“I’m just happy he’s focused and playing really well. He’s happy within himself and that’s important: you can see Paul enjoying football himself with a red shirt on.
“Our conversations remain private, of course. But for example, Paul is a Manchester United player through and through. He’s been here in two spells.
“He came as a kid, he’s learnt about the history of the club, the passion of the club.
“He wants to do the best for United when he’s here and I think we’ve seen that – that he really cares for his team and he’s trying to be as successful as everyone else.”
