According to a recent report from The Mirror, Spanish giants FC Barcelona are all set to spend an astonishing amount of £100m plus add-ons for Manchester United’s star midfielder Paul Pogba.
Having initially made his debut for Manchester United in 2011 as an academy product, Paul Pogba eventually went on to establish himself as one of United’s top stars’ since making his return to the club in 2016.
After spending four years away at Juventus in the Serie A, Pogba subsequently was brought back to Old Trafford for a total of €105 million, which at that point was the highest football transfer fee, surpassing former record holder Gareth Bale.
Despite recently developing a sour relationship with manager Jose Mourinho, 2018 World Cup winner Paul Pogba definitely remains as one of the most vital parts of The Red Devils’ starting line-up. And after recently being stripped off his vice-captaincy role by the Portuguese manager, who went on to blame Pogba for United’s recent 1-1 draw against Wolves, the French star has pretty much made it clear that he desires to leave the club by January.
Therefore, FC Barcelona, on the other hand, are expected to make another big money move this winter and regardless of the recent signings made by Ernesto Valverde, in the likes of Arthur, Malcolm, and Arturo Vidal, the Catalonian giants could very much be in contention to bring in Pogba when the transfer window re-opens in January.
However, in the race to signing Paul Pogba, FC Barcelona are also expected to face some competition from fellow European giants, in the form of Italian champions Juventus, who will be looking to bring back their former star midfielder.
Besides, French champions Paris Saint Germain will also look forward to bringing back Pogba back to his homeland for the first time since 2009.
The January transfer window definitely promises to be an exciting one, especially for Manchester United after all the recent drama that has unfolded at Old Trafford.
