Pogba keen to leave United for Barcelona

United rebuff Barcelona's Pogba swap offer

It also claims that Pogba is a "favorite" of United chairman Ed Woodward, who is often credited with much of the say in transfer negotiations for the club. Pogba, a key member of the French team that won the World Cup in Russian Federation last month, was part of United's youth set-up but, short of first-team opportunities, opted to join Juventus in 2012.

Behind all the moves are the Machiavellian hands of 26-year-old Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola.

Although the Premier League transfer window closes on Thursday afternoon, Barcelona will have until the end of the month to sign Pogba.

One of the clubs that were thought to be after Willian this summer is Manchester United, who as you well know, are managed by former Blue Jose Mourinho.

Paul Pogba has told his Manchester United teammates he wants to leave and has come to an agreement with Barcelona over a £350,000-a-week deal, according to the Mail.

Manchester United have offered only €25m to Bayern Munich for Jerome Boateng, placing the Red Devils hugely off the German champions' asking price. The Italian club will hope that a nostalgic desire to return to Italy and the country's generous tax incentives (reportedly a factor in Cristiano Ronaldo's decision to move to Turin) could sway Pogba's decision.

Man taunts huge bison, it doesn't go well
He again appeared to be intoxicated and was cited for not wearing a seatbelt. Herbert did not comment on whether the man could be issued a citation.

Rumours are now circling again, with Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo claiming Barcelona submitted a €50m offer for Pogba on Monday.

McGarry said: "He [Mourinho] needs to pull Paul Pogba into his office ahead of this weekend's fixtures and say, "Forget everything".

Manchester United are not interested though, in letting the midfielder leave.

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

Bakayoko moved to Stamford Bridge from Monaco last summer for £40m and started 25 Premier League games in his first season in the Premier League.
