Barcelona refuse to dampen Paul Pogba rumours

Man Utd transfer news Paul Pogba

The Red Devils paid big money to snare Pogba away from Italian champions Juventus two years ago, but he has been subject to criticism at Old Trafford, while there are also question marks over his relationship with Jose Mourinho.

United are aware that it could be a ploy by Pogba's representative to secure him a new contract on the same terms as £500,000-a-week top earner Alexis Sanchez.

Pogba, who did not accompany United on the US tour, will meet Mourinho this week after returning to United's Carrington training centre Monday after a three-week break following France's World Cup triumph.

His agent, Mino Raiola, is expected in Manchester this week to negotiate the transfer of Pogba out of Old Trafford.

United said last night that Pogba was not for sale amid claims that Barcelona and Juventus want to sign the World Cup victor before the European transfer window shuts at the end of the month.

The relationship between the French midfielder and his coach at Manchester United, Jose Mourinho, isn't good and he's ready to leave the English club for the second time in his career.

Her career spanned more than half a century and Rae appeared in dozens of TV shows, movies and stage productions. Mindy Cohn, who played Natalie Green on The Facts of Life , wrote a tribute to the late actress on Instagram.

Pogba is a great player who is on another team.

"There are a lot of names that always get circulated around in the rumour mill - all of them are good players and we respect them themselves but we also respect the clubs they are now at".

World Cup-winning Pogba is back at Carrington after he was allowed an extended break following the tournament in Russian Federation.

"Why? Because it's closed for a month, where he can only think about football".

The fact Raiola, who was in the north-west yesterday, is trying so hard will only increase the belief the players wants out of United after just two years. However, the deadline in England is 5pm on Thursday, leaving United little or no time to sign a replacement unless they meant to replace him with new £52m signing Fred. There is also no indication at this stage that Pogba is willing to agitate for a transfer.

He goes on to report that United do not want to sell the "important" player as they see him as the franchise of the club. Everton have lined up Mina as a back-up if they can not sign Rojo but face competition from Lyon.
