Pogba's agent in Manchester to unlock Frenchman's move to Barcelona

Manchester United have rejected a massive offer for World Cup winning midfielder Paul Pogba from Barcelona according to reports in Italy.

Let's be serious here, a bid of €50 million plus two players, who were on the fringe of first team football last season, was never going to suffice after the midfielder's impressive performance at the World Cup.

Would you like to see Pogba leave United in this window?

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Red Devils are closing in on a deal to bring the 23-year-old to Old Trafford this summer.

Mourinho said in July that Pogba got better as the World Cup progressed because the stakes only got higher and higher, whereas the ups and downs of the club season caused him to lose focus.

It was reported yesterday that Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, has reassured Barcelona that he will get Paul Pogba to move to the Nou Camp.

Jose Mourinho wants Pogba back at Old Trafford and is hopeful he can replicate his form on the worldwide stage for United.

Instead of praising Pogba's performances, Mourinho urged him to "understand" why he had done so well in Russian Federation and appeared to suggest the player lacked the same focus for his club. And with just three days until the close of the transfer market in England, Barcelona have very little time to close a deal. Bayern want £50m for the former Manchester City defender, but United are unwilling to pay more than £40m for a player who turns 30 next month.

United can still receive offers for players after Thursday, but will not be able to pursue targets to replace Pogba.
