Manchester United Reject Pogba Bid - Raiola Still Working On Barca Deal

Transfer news

Reports from Spain this evening have said that Pogba wants to leave the club, and the reliable Sky Italy journalist Gianluca di Marzio quickly followed that up with the news that Barcelona have had a bid rejected.

It is believed Barcelona is working together with Pogba's agent Mino Raiola to secure a deal for the Manchester United midfielder.

Manager Jose Mourinho has already predicted a "difficult season" if United do not do more business, so losing a World Cup-winning midfielder would only add to that.

As well as Pogba, the United hierarchy are also understood to be keen to keep unsettled forward Anthony Martial despite well-documented tension between him and Mourinho.

Barcelona are hoping to add Paul Pogba to their list of summer signings, but it is unlikely that Manchester United will allow the World Cup victor to go without a swap deal in place.

Any transfer left this late between two Premier League clubs is going to see the price of the player rocket, as the selling team may struggle to get a replacement in.

According to the Times, Pogba has told his teammates that he is unhappy with Mourinho.

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has refused to rule out a move for Manchester United star Paul Pogba.

"I think the World Cup is the flawless habitat for a player like him to give [their] best", Mourinho said.

Mourinho suggested Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba, and Romelu Lukaku could also play a part against Leicester. The Reds have won 19 of our 26 introductory Premier League games at Old Trafford.

There is plenty of Manchester United and Arsenal gossip doing the rounds in the papers with the English giants linked with a whole host of star names ahead of deadline day.

The fractured nature of Pogba's relationship with Mourinho will give Barcelona hope that a deal can be struck.
