Transfer: Juventus agree swap with Manchester United for Pogba, Pjanic

Transfer: Juventus agree swap with Manchester United for Pogba, Pjanic

Don Balon, known for their bold and outlandish transfer claims, report Pogba has told Barcelona he wants a move and will do anything to help it materialise.

The player is yet to return to United from holiday following the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but there is now some doubt as to whether he will return at all. Raiola is known to have approached United about a raise for Pogba after Sanchez moved to Old Trafford from Arsenal in January.

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.

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

And finding a player to slot in for Pogba would improve incredibly tough with such time constraints.

"There are a lot of names that always get circulated around in the rumour mill - all of them are good players and we respect them themselves but we also respect the clubs they are now at".

'The players are in a closed camp, isolated from the external world, from commercial compromises, and every possible influence'.

Pogba was linked with a switch to Barcelona after the World Cup, and the midfielder's agent Mino Raiola reportedly flew to England to present United with the La Liga side's offer. While rumours will probably persist until the transfer window closes, it is doubtful that we will see the French midfielder move clubs this summer.

Thoughts on Barcelona's cash plus players offer for Paul Pogba?

He is under contract with Manchester United until 2021. "It's about him giving the best he has to give".
