Barcelona Are Offering These Two Players For Paul Pogba

Transfer news Transfer news Anthony Martial is set to stay at Manchester United

As the transfer window draws to a close for Premier League clubs, momentum seems to be gathering in the rumour that Paul Pogba could be leaving United to join Barcelona in a mega-money move.

And Barcelona can delay making a renewed approach for Pogba, following their failed first effort. The 31-year-old won two titles at the Etihad Stadium but fell out of favour after the arrival of Pep Guardiola as manager in 2016.

French talisman Paul Pogba enjoyed a fairytale summer at the World Cup following a disappointing 2017/18 campaign at Old Trafford.

The Chilean scored just three times in 18 games as United ended the season without a trophy. The 25-year-old is claimed to have sent a text to Ed Woodward, United's executive vice-chairman, of his desire to go.

Mourinho is keen to bolster United's attacking options ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline, with Inter Milan's Croatia star Ivan Perisic also reportedly a target.

According to the Times, the relationship between the pair has soured even further over the summer.

Willian and Mourinho won a pair of Premier League titles at Stamford Bridge and the Brazil global has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford.

Barcelona's offer of Mina as part of the Pogba deal is due to the fact Mourinho is desperate to strengthen his defence. Pogba, a key member of the French team that won the World Cup in Russian Federation last month, was part of United's youth set-up but, short of first-team opportunities, opted to join Juventus in 2012.

Manchester United have finally reached an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur for the transfer of Toby Alderweireld, according to the Express.

Mourinho said in July that Pogba got better as the World Cup progressed because the stakes only got higher and higher, whereas the ups and downs of the club season caused him to lose focus. The Bayern man is thought to be allowed to leave the German champions this summer.
