Manchester United reject '£45m plus two players' Barcelona offer for Paul Pogba

Man Utd transfer news Barcelona Paul Pogba

Sky Sports in Italy are reporting that United have been offered £45m and the Barcelona duo of defender Yerry Mina and midfielder Andre Gomes in exchange for Pogba.

Pogba was inconsistent last season and was even dropped by the United boss for a spell in the second half of the season.

It's not a great time to be a Manchester United fan as manager Jose Mourinho has been causing some kind of irritation and uneasiness at the club.

If the 55-year-old does not last at the 20-time Premier League champions this campaign, perhaps he would consider taking on an global job, something he has not done before.

Let's be serious here, a bid of €50 million plus two players, who were on the fringe of first team football last season, was never going to suffice after the midfielder's impressive performance at the World Cup.

"I don't think it's about us getting the best out of him", Mourinho told ESPN FC.

'I think the World Cup is the flawless habitat for a player like him to give the best. Why?

Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, is now in Manchester in a bid to push the complicated operation forward.

"The players are in a closed camp, isolated from the external world, from commercial compromises, and every possible influence".

Because the transfer window on the continent doesn't close until August 31, United now face the prospect of a four-week battle to hold on to one of their most popular stars.

And super-agent Mina Raiola has placed an offer on Barcelona's table which the Catalonian club are prepared to settle with.

The Frenchman reported back to training at Carrington on Monday after a three-week break, having resisted Mourinho's call to return early - unlike Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones and Romelu Lukaku.
