Even after the signing of Brazilian Malcolm and Chile’s Arturo Vidal, Barcelona signaled they would continue to seek reinforcements in the market, and this time it is Frenchman Paul Pogba, currently at Manchester United. On Sunday, some British media, such as the BBC and the Daily Star, say the deal could happen next week.
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). The transaction is dealt with in a hurry, as the transfer window of the English Championship ends next Thursday, August 9.
By the second week of July, Raiola had already met with representatives of Barcelona to offer the player to the Catalan club. The Frenchman would be dissatisfied in the Red Devils, because of under-performing performances and also for some friction with the team’s coach, José Mourinho.
Paul Pogba, 25, was revealed by Manchester United and after transferring to Juventus in 2012, returned to the English club in 2016. For the Red Devils, the midfielder made 95 appearances, made 15 goals and won the Europa League in the season 2016/17. Recently, he was one of the protagonists of the French team that won the World Cup in Russia.
