- Barcelona are still interested in completing Paul Pogba transfer from Manchester United this summer
- Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba enjoyed a stellar partnership at Juventus
- Manchester United fans are scared of losing Pogba and not signing his replacement on time
In today’s update of the intriguing Paul Pogba transfer news, Mundo Deportivo have claimed that Barcelona have not ruled out signing Paul Pogba this summer despite agreeing terms with Arturo Vidal late last week. According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are prepared to break the bank for Pogba as they see the French midfielder as one of the best players in the world. Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde spoke with the media late last night where he claimed that he does not plan to end Barcelona’s transfer business this summer and is ready to welcome Pogba if Manchester United decides to sell him.
Valverde said: “We have to be prepared for everything and I do not know what is going to happen. It would be absurd for me to say that everything is closed. Barça, like all the greats of Europe, is always open to strengthening itself. We have to wait for the market to end”
Pogba and Vidal played together at Juventus
One of the major reasons for Barcelona’s wish to sign Pogba is how Vidal and Pogba formed an unbeatable partnership for the Italian giants Juventus. Pogba flourished with Vidal and Andrea Pirlo supporting him from the midfield. In Sergio Busquets, Barcelona has the ideal player to support Vidal and Pogba to push forward and dominate the other teams.
If Barcelona end up signing Pogba this summer, it would then mean that Philippe Coutinho will move in a forward role where Coutinho alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez will form Barcelona’s front three. Mundo Deportivo understands that Barcelona could even back out of the Paul Pogba transfer chase after already signing 4 players (Arthur, Lenglet, Malcom, Vidal). Manager Ernesto Valverde believes he has a very talented squad at his disposal and with Real Madrid failing to replace Cristiano Ronaldo and also dealing with Luka Modric’s rumoured exit, Barcelona could dominate Real Madrid next season on all fronts.
What about Manchester United in this transfer battle?
Manchester United fans must be cursing the Premier League’s decision to bring forward the deadline for the EPL teams to sign players. While EPL teams can only sign players until August 9, they can sell until the end of this month. Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial are rumoured to be leaving the club this summer with no clear indication of whether Manchester United have the idea or funds to replace the either of the French players. Paul Pogba transfer debacle has further increased the uncertainty for the Manchester United fans going into the new season.
