Paul Pogba Still On Barcelona’s Radar
Manchester United star player Paul Pogba is still getting Barcelona’s attention despite the close of the transfer period in England.
Andres Iniesta’s departure has created a huge vacuum in Valverde’s team at the middle of the pitch and the manager is hoping to find a perfect player to fill the void before the start of the La Liga season.
The Catalans manager believes United star is the only midfielder who could replace the Spaniard and he has taken a huge step to capture his signature.
The Frenchman captained the Red Devils to their first win of the season last week against Leicester City but his future is still not clear due to huge interest from the Catalans in his signature.
Though the world cup winner was said to have a misunderstanding with Mourinho last season, he revealed – via his Instagram account – his readiness to feature under the Portuguese manager in the new season.
However, the latest report suggests that the Blaugranas have reportedly cooled their chase after his service this summer, but they are going to reignite their desire to capture him in the next transfer window.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the La Liga giants are ready to ‘wait’ for his signature in January as they hope his agent Mino Raiola would be able to convince him to make his switch to the Camp Nou Stadium.
His contract with the Red Devils still runs until 2020, but Barcelona might trigger his release clause before that time.
