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

Share

The future of Paul Pogba at Manchester United remains uncertain as his former club Juventus have been linked with a move for the World Cup victor, although Barcelona's manager has refused to deny that he too would be interested in signing the midfielder.

But it seems United have turned down the shockingly-low bid.

Would you like to see Pogba leave United in this window?

Pogba endured a turbulent time at Old Trafford last season.

Despite the 25-year-old's feelings, however, United have no intention of selling the Frenchman, according to one source, just two years after splashing out a then-world-record fee to bring him back to Old Trafford from Juventus.

Speaking via the Mirror in 2016, Soler said: "Last year we reached a deal with Juventus for us to have a priority option when they sold Pogba".

But Pogba would bounce back this summer, impressing for France as they went on to win the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Pogba would be the final piece of the jigsaw as Barcelona are unrelenting in his pursuit, but it's on the player's part whether to agree to a pay cut or stay put with a higher wage bill. Thank you. He's my friend, I grew up with him.

In theory, Barcelona would have until the end of the month to sign Pogba before the transfer window closes in Spain.

Thoughts on Barcelona's cash plus players offer for Paul Pogba? There is also no indication at this stage that Pogba is willing to agitate for a transfer.

United take on Leicester City in the Premier League's opening game for the 2018/19 season.
