Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been offered to Barcelona on a free transfer, according to reports. The 28-year-old midfielder has less than one year remaining on his contract at Old Trafford and is free to speak with foreign clubs over a pre-agreement in January.
Pogba has started the 2021/22 season in stellar form, registering seven assists in as many games in the Premier League this season, which puts him top of the assist charts.
The new season is shaping up to be, potentially, Pogba’s best in a United shirt since his return to the club in 2016 but it could also be his last.
According to ESPN, Spanish giants Barcelona have been offered the chance to sign him for nothing next year when his contract expires. Furthermore, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Real Madrid, and several Premier League clubs have also been contacted by Mino Raiola as the agent sounds out a potential exit.
The report claims Pogba has yet to decide on his future at Manchester United and an extension to his current terms at the club is not out of the picture yet, although other options will be explored.
Despite the Frenchman potentially joining Barcelona on a free transfer, there are said to be hurdles that need to be overcome should he join the Catalan club. Barcelona’s financial state remains a worry, with Pogba’s wages and agent fees seen as an issue.
