Barcelona refuse to dampen Paul Pogba rumours

Barcelona refuse to dampen Paul Pogba rumours”

According to various reports, the Catalan giants this week launched a £45m bid plus Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

But, despite not explicitly ruling out a move for Pogba, Barcelona manager Valverde refused to be drawn too much on the speculation - instead choosing to praise the player.

Willian's future this transfer window has been uncertain, with Barcelona and Manchester United reportedly interested in the 29-year-old's services.

The World Cup victor, 25, contacted Red Devils supremo Ed Woodward this week to say he fancies an Old Trafford exit during this window.

The information is that Pogba's manager, Mino Raiola, will hold a meeting with representatives of Manchester United to handle the deal, which would turn around around 100 million pounds (about $ 481 million). Paul Pogba's frustration at having to spend more time at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho now has a fresh chapter.

United take on Leicester City in the Premier League's opening game for the 2018/19 season.

"I hope someone can catch them - it would be nice, so hopefully Manchester United can".

"Perhaps he needs to say "congratulations on winning your World Cup medal, but forget about that, because now it's about Manchester United". During a season, you can have a big match then a smaller match, then one even smaller, then you can lose your focus, you can lose your concentration, then comes a big match again".

It is interesting to add that unless Mourinho is able to secure an apt replacement for him in the few days that remain, a deal in this window seems unlikely.

The chances of Mourinho leaving the club have skyrocketed after a string of poor displays in pre-season, and Mourinho's open frustration with Ed Woodward's performance in the transfer market.
