Paul Pogba is eyed as Barcelona's marquee summer signing
  • Eric Abidal wants to bring Paul Pogba to Barcelona from Manchester United this summer
  • Paul Pogba is frustrated with Jose Mourinho and wants to quit Manchester United

In today’s latest Barcelona transfer news, Paul Pogba’s name has once again been thrown in the mix after Barcelona’s new Sporting Director Eric Abidal has made Pogba his biggest transfer target this summer and is trying to sign the Frenchman, reports Mundo Deportivo. The report claims that Pogba is not happy with the tactics at Manchester United and wants more freedom to operate with, however, Pogba is now convinced he is ready to quit Manchester United and is attracted by Barcelona’s transfer interest. Mundo Deportivo thinks Abidal shares a close relationship with Pogba and wants to make him Barcelona’s biggest signing this summer.

Pogba wants to quit Manchester United

Paul Pogba was one of the best players at the FIFA World Cup 2018 where he led France to the World Cup glory but despite his brilliant displays at the World Cup, Mourinho is not convinced by Pogba’s ability to lead Man United’s midfield. Having already signed Fred this summer, Mourinho is now looking for a more stable midfielder who can compliment Nemanja Matic and Fred to provide cover for his defenders. Pogba is feeling threatened as he could be spending another season trying to prove his worth to Mourinho and the Frenchman would rather quit Man United than playing another season with shackles.

Barcelona want to strengthen their midfield

Latest Barcelona transfer news claims that Barcelona are actively looking to sign players to their midfield after losing Andres Iniesta and Paulinho this summer. Adrien Rabiot and N’Golo Kante are Barcelona’s other midfield targets, however, Eric Abidal wants to sign Pogba and make a massive statement ahead of the new La Liga season. With Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure from Spain, Abidal wants to ensure that Barcelona have the utter dominance when it comes to the domestic football. Abidal believes Pogba is the type of player who will gel perfectly with Sergio Busquets and Philippe Coutinho to take Barcelona to greater heights.

Barcelona transfer rumours and news this summer were directed towards the failed move for Antoine Griezmann where the French striker chose to stay with Atletico Madrid and snub a move to Camp Nou. Since then, Barcelona have signed the exciting Malcom from Bordeaux and are now focused on signing Pogba who is re-thinking about his decision to sign for Manchester United. Premier League’s summer transfer window ends on August 9 and The Red Devils will only allow Pogba to leave if they are able to sign a viable replacement in time. Real Madrid’s Matteo Kovacic has been rumoured with a move to Old Trafford which could possibly signal the end of Paul Pogba’s time at Manchester United.
