Barcelona offer Man Utd Mina, Gomes and £45m for Pogba

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has warned the club not to sell France World Cup star Paul Pogba and instead to focus on strengthening the squad. Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola claimed in January that he was offered Pogba by Raiola.

In case you didn't know.

.

The French star player has been having a hard relationship with Jose Mourinho and it is believed that Raiola is ready to use that as a reason for Pogba wanting to move out of Old Trafford.

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

Steve Nicol talks Chelsea scrambling to buy players as well as Paul Pogba, Yerry Mina and Patrick van Aanholt.

Let's be serious here, a bid of €50 million plus two players, who were on the fringe of first team football last season, was never going to suffice after the midfielder's impressive performance at the World Cup.

Ousmane Dembele has decided he will reject any approach from Arsenal and wants to remain at Barcelona for another season, according to reports in Spain.


It would certainly be a shock for everyone if this happens.

The Sun claims the former Juventus star - who joined United for a then world-record fee of £89 million in 2016 - has demanded the Premier League side increase his wages from £180,000 to £380,000 a week so he is paid nearly on a par with Chilean star Alexis Sanchez, otherwise he will leave.

Should United eventually accept an offer, Pogba would earn €100m (£100m) over five years at the Nou Camp. Hence, United might consider pondering over this offer. They are also reportedly preparing a €100m move for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

World Cup-winner Pogba is said to have grown disillusioned with life under Jose Mourinho, sparking interest from the La Liga champions - though time is likely to save United's blushes, with less than 48 hours to go until the end of the window.

The reported agreement would see him pick up £346,000 a week, nearly double what he earns at United.

It is yet to be seen if the 25-year-old will be involved in Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester after returning to training this week.
