Barcelona Agree Deal For Manchester United Ace, His Days Are Numbered

Sky Sports in Italy are reporting that United have been offered £45m and the Barcelona duo of defender Yerry Mina and midfielder Andre Gomes in exchange for Pogba. 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.

It was a hard season at Old Trafford for Pogba previous year, but he ended it on a high being a key player for France as they lifted the World Cup in Russian Federation.

While Pogba has not publicly confirmed he wants to leave United, rumours of a breakdown in communications with United boss Mourinho have circulated throughout 2018 and now it appears someone in the Frenchman's camp have given Barca encouragement that a move could be possible.

The former Juventus star arrived at Manchester United back in the summer of 2016 for a club record fee of €05 million and aided the club to one League Cup and a Europa League title ever since.

Pogba made 37 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United last season.

"Pogba is a great player, who is on another team and we are always very respectful of the players on other teams", he declared.

The Independent have also reported further on the topic, claiming that Manchester United are set to take a "firm stance" over the Paul Pogba debacle, despite Raiola's attempts to force a move through.

It is claimed that if Manchester United can find a replacement quickly, they will agree to sell Pogba.

"I don't think it's about us getting the best out of him", Mourinho told ESPN FC.

Pogba endured a turbulent time at Old Trafford last season.

"I think the World Cup is the ideal habitat for a player like him to give the best. Why?"

"Why? Because it's closed for a month, where he can only think about football". However, the deadline in England is 5pm on Thursday, leaving United little or no time to sign a replacement unless they meant to replace him with new £52m signing Fred.

The French worldwide moved back to United for a fee in the region of £100 million from Juventus amidst interest from Real Madrid, but apparently the 23-year-old was very almost heading to the Nou Camp.

And super-agent Mina Raiola has placed an offer on Barcelona's table which the Catalonian club are prepared to settle with.

However, Mourinho disputed suggestions that it's down to him to get the best out of Pogba.
