Lionel Messi is reportedly urging Barcelona to make a move for Manchester United and France star Paul Pogba after Antoine Griezmann snubbed the La Liga champions earlier this summer.
Don Balon are stating that the Argentine has suggested Pogba as a player for the club to pursue next and Barcelona will seemingly listen to any orders given by their star man.
The Spanish media out also claim that Messi believes that there aren’t many better midfielders out there than Pogba and that United are willing to let the player leave this summer.

While Pogba needs to add consistency to his game, La Liga would probably suit Pogba more, especially playing in a side that keeps the ball so well, with the best-attacking players.
He’s still young and there’s no reason he can’t improve his game at United, but the sour relationship with Mourinho needs to be fixed.
