Barcelona want deal for Manchester United star Paul Pogba


Transfer News: Barcelona eager to close deal for Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba

According to the Catalan point of sale sport (h / t Sport Witness) Manchester United star Paul Pogba has been seen as a ‘real target’ for Barcelona.

The 28-year-old has been on the radar of several clubs as he entered the final year of his contract this season. The France international has yet to sign a new deal at Old Trafford and could leave on a free transfer next summer.

However, one club that sees Pogba as a real target is La Liga giants Barcelona. Although Spanish media outlet Fichajes initially signaled the Blaugrana’s interest in the midfielder, Sport (h / t Sport Witness), has now confirmed that the player is a ‘real target’ in the eyes of the Catalan club.

In fact, this is apparently not a one-sided interest. The Frenchman is also said to be “seduced” by the opportunity to play for La Liga. However, there could be complications in this deal.

Barcelona cannot afford the huge salaries Pogba currently commands from Old Trafford and it would take “a significant economic effort” from the midfielder if he wants to sign for the Catalan side.

In addition, they are also expected to start negotiations with 28-year-old agent Mino Raiola, and these talks are deemed “not easy”.

However, while Barcelona are interested, United are reportedly focused on signing a new deal by their superstar as soon as possible.

Solskjaer and co are said to be aware that the Frenchman will be allowed to speak at foreign clubs in January if a new contract is not made by then. Moreover, given Pogba’s incredible start to the season, the Red Devils would like the midfielder to stay at the club beyond this season.
