The eight-weight world champion, who also now serves as a Congressman in his native Philippines, had been in talks to fight Australian welterweight Jeff Horn but his focus would now appear to have shifted to former world champion Khan.
But Pacquiao's adviser Michael Koncz says the matter is unresolved - despite organisers announcing the Horn-Pacquiao last month, mooted for Brisbane's Lang Park.
Well, the ongoing saga on who Pac-Man may fight next just took yet another twist, as Manny himself has confirmed that yes, he IS in talks with Khan.
"My team and I are in negotiations with Amir Khan for our next fight", Pacquiao tweeted yesterday. "Further announcement coming soon", the former WBO champion tweeted.
Khan had previously considered a battle of Britain with Kell Brook, who has since agreed to a mandatory defence of his IBF crown with unbeaten southpaw Errol Spence.

Meanwhile, in an interview with The Manila Times, Arum said that the Horn fight would push through if the amount of money promised by the Middle East group did not materialize.
