Spanish giants FC Barcelona will continue to monitor Paul Pogba’s deteriorating relationship with José Mourinho throughout the season, according to reports in the English press.
As per The Telegraph, the Catalans are still keen to bring the Frenchman to the Camp Nou but have accepted that it might not be possible before the international transfer deadline passes on the 31st of August.
The report also states that whilst United are adamant that the midfielder is not for sale, Barcelona have already had a bid of 50million euros plus Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes rejected and are expected to return with a much-improved offer either in January or next summer.
There have been suggestions that Pogba has become frustrated under the tutelage of Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, leading to speculation that he could leave the club that he joined for £89million two years ago.
Despite scoring in the Red Devils 2-1 opening day win over Leicester City, the World Cup winner refused to comment when asked if he was happy at the club. He said: “There are things I cannot say, otherwise I will get fined.”
Pogba currently has three years left to run on his contract with United. The midfielder is currently 1/5 to stay at Old Trafford at the transfer window but 3/1 to join Barcelona with bookies Paddy Power.
