We are still reading reports about Paul Pogba leaving Manchester United, despite exclusives coming out of Italy that Jose Mourinho had deemed the French midfielder unsellable.
That’s a story we picked up on yesterday from CalcioMercato, but now Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has reportedly offered the United star to Barcelona during a trip to Spain.
CaughtOffside picked that up from Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, who claim that Pogba is likely to make his way out of Old Trafford this summer due to his poor relationship with the manager.
Quite the contrast, eh?
The Reds have already signed Fred in midfield and could yet add another big name like Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Toni Kroos, Marco Verratti or Thiago Alcantara.
That may well suggest there’s little room for Pogba, who remains inconsistent for his club and there’s a feeling amongst some that he’s just not Mourinho kind of player.
However, Pogba would shine pretty much anywhere and he’s gone time on his time. It comes as no surprise that a club like Barcelona would come in for the Frenchman, but we’re hoping this is all rubbish and United keep our star man.
The Catalan giants could do with a big-name midfield signing following to departures of Andres Iniesta and Paulinho this summer, so it makes sense to link Pogba with the La Liga champions, who aim to get back to conquering Europe.
The 25-year-old has today’s World Cup final to think about first, though. It’s been a very long time since we’ve had someone win the tournament whilst playing for United.
