This is according to Diario Gol, who are noting that boss Ernesto Valverde also wants Barca to sign the World Cup winner, and that the Spanish giants are set turn their attentions to Pogba is Adrien Rabiot ends up agreeing a new deal with PSG.

Don Balon  have reported in the past that the Red Devils are going to ask for €150M if they are to see Pogba leave the club, a price that may be worth paying going by the potential and ability the player has in his locker.

Messi is pressuring Barcelona to make their move for Pogba this summer

Pogba showed the world what he was all about at the World Cup with France this summer, as the midfielder ended up proving to be one of Les Bleus’ most influential players as they won their second ever world title.

The Man United star performed excellently in every match he played in, as well as bagging himself a goal in the final that helped his side romp to a 4-2 victory over Croatia.

For Man United, however, Pogba has failed to have a similar impact, with the Frenchman struggling to put in consistent displays for Jose Mourinho’s side since his arrival in 2016.

If Barca do somehow manage to pull off the signing of Pogba, it’ll be a massive coup for the Blaugrana if the player can pull off the types of performances he showed in Russia this summer.
