Idrissa Gueye TEAMtalk

Paris Saint-Germain are looking to offload alleged Manchester United and Wolves target Idrissa Gueye, according to a report.

Gueye left Everton for PSG last summer for £28m, but the deal was long and protracted, apparently due to interest from United.

L’Equipe claimed that the reason for the hold up was because of interest from Manchester United. In fact Wayne Rooney recommended the player to United after playing with him at Everton.

He told The Times in June: “After a month playing with him I spoke to people at Manchester United saying he was good enough for them. I wasn’t shocked when Paris Saint-Germain signed him.”

And more recently the midfielder has been linked again to the club, while Wolves have also been linked.

Now though French publication Le10 Sport claim PSG want to sell him after just 12 months.

Paris Saint-Germain would like to ‘separate’ from Gueye just a year after he penned a four-year deal in France.

The 30-year-old made 33 appearances during his debut campaign for PSG and helped them win the title and the Coupe de France.

But sporting director Leonardo is “in the process” of completing Gueye’s sale with his future in Paris is “crumbling from week to week”.


Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested there is no immediate rush to get Manchester United’s transfer business done early this summer.

United are chasing Jadon Sancho, who is believed to be their top summer target, with reports on Monday suggesting United are close to a 120m transfer.



United though have to work out with Borussia Dortmund how the deal will be structured after agreeing personal terms in principle with the 20-year-old.

Asked about the importance of getting transfers done early, Solskjaer was giving nothing away.

“This transfer window is a long one. Every transfer takes it course. It is what it is, so if there is any news we will update you,” said the Norwegian.
