Despite all its riches, Paris Saint-Germain have never won the Champions League.
Despite owning the two most expensive footballers in history, the French giants have failed to claim the prize they most want every year since the club was acquired by Qatar in 2011.
Nonetheless, the state-owned Ligue 1 are throwing the kitchen sink into the transfer window this summer.
With Neymar, Mbappe and Angel Di Maria already in their ranks, PSG have already relied on superstars such as Thiago Silva, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani, spending more than £ 1 billion over a decade.
The next world football star they want to buy is none other than Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba.
For the umpteenth summer in a row, the 28-year-old is linked with the exit door of Old Trafford, and his contract due to expire in 2022, the Red Devils could be forced to sell this time.
Pogba’s stock is high after a dazzling Euro 2020 campaign, despite his country’s shortcomings, and it is understood United could settle for £ 50million, cutting their losses after re-signing the Frenchman for £ 94million in 2016.
PSG’s summer spending is expected to exceed the £ 100million mark, following the £ 54million arrival of Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan and Danilo Pereira’s signing of £ 14million from Port.

However, the Ligue 1 champions have actually been pretty shrewd with their money this summer, landing a number of incredible free transfers.
Sergio Ramos remains one of the most formidable defenders in the world and joins him after a 16-year career at Real Madrid.
Former Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum, who proved his worth for the Netherlands at Euro 2020, was signed by PSG for nothing.
And most impressive of all, they got the world’s best young goalkeeper for free by signing Gianluigi Donnarumma after his exploits at Euro 2020.
With or without Pogba, PSG will have a pretty extraordinary team next season.
In fact, they might have two totally different XIs at their disposal, both perfectly capable of fighting for the top European prizes …
The possible XI first choice of PSG
The potential XI of PSG
The likes of Ander Herrera and Idrissa Gueye can’t even get into the Save XI!
In short, PSG will be beaten next season, regardless of which team they choose.
