Pogba's agent in Manchester to unlock Frenchman's move to Barcelona

Justin GreeneAug 08, 2018

But the Daily Star On Sunday believes that Pogba's agent Mino Raiola could push through a move to the Nou Camp for Pogba.

Reports coming out of Spain suggest that the Catalan giants are looking at the possibility of signing the 25-year-old superstar, who has reportedly become disillusioned with life under Jose Mourinho.

The Manchester United midfielder became a world champion following a string of excellent performances in Russian Federation.

Mourinho has expressed his frustration over the club's transfer policy, and Pogba's departure would leave little time for executive chairman Ed Woodward to find a suitable replacement with the Premier League transfer window due to close on Thursday.

A number of United's under-23 squad could make temporary exits, with European leagues remaining open for business and English Football League clubs allowed to make loan signings until the end of the month.

The Catalan club are working on deals to sell Aleix Vidal, Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes and Paco Alcacer to raise the funds to bring in the World Cup victor.

United are simply not interested in selling Pogba.

Dembele also fuelled speculation over a potential move to the Gunners after he had dinner with several Arsenal players last week, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Despite having today presented Arturo Vidal as a Barcelona player, head-coach Ernesto Valverde was full of praise for Pogba last week, and refused to rule out a move, a move which has now seemingly been made.

Jose Mourinho tells ESPN FC that the World Cup was the flawless habitat for Paul Pogba as he could 'only think about football'.

"You have to speak to Manchester United", added Raiola.

According to rumours, Pogba has desired to join Barcelona but a chance of a reunion with Juventus will be quite tempting for him.

United were beaten 1-0 by Bayern at the Allianz Arena, five days before their Premier League campaign begins at home to Leicester.
