Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is serious about landing PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi.
ESPN says United’s interest in Matuidi is not dependant on their bid to sign Pogba falling through.
It had been reported that the Red Devils were considering Matuidi as an alternative to his French compatriot if the Red Devils could not lure Pogba back to Old Trafford.
However, the club are keen on landing both Euro 2016 finalists as they plan an assault on a first league title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.
United lead the race for Pogba after offering £100million to Juventus, with rivals Real Madrid not willing to spend that amount of money.
