PSG made Paul Pogba offer, Juventus director Pavel Nedved says

Juventus director Pavel Nedved has said Paris Saint-Germain have made an offer for Paul Pogba, although the claim has been denied by the Ligue 1 club.

Pogba, 22, has been tipped to leave Juventus this summer and has been strongly linked with PSG, with agent Mino Raiola telling Le Parisien earlier this month: "Ligue 1 is not too small for Paul Pogba."

RMC had claimed this week that PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi had recently met the France international in Monaco to discuss a potential move, although the report added that Barcelona and Real Madrid were rivals for his signature.

Former Juve star Nedved has now told Le Parisien: "Yes, PSG sent us an offer. But Paris are not alone -- Real Madrid and Barcelona are also interested."

However, Olivier Letang, PSG's assistant sporting director, swiftly denied that was the case, telling the newspaper: "No, [there is] no offer for Pogba."

Paul Pogba has been ruled out for two months with a hamstring injury.

PSG would appear to be in a strong position to sign Paris-born Pogba, with Barcelona banned from making any signings until January 2016 and Raiola having played down links with Madrid this week, although financial fair play may hinder the French champions' ambitions.

Pogba, who spent time in the youth ranks at Manchester United, has also been linked with a return to the Premier League.

The midfielder is currently facing a two-month spell on the sidelines after suffering a torn hamstring in the Champions League victory at Borussia Dortmund this week.
