Barca interested in Pogba, but he’s too expensive
Today’s rumors start with some interesting claims that Barcelona are apparently interested in Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
According to OK Diario’s Eduardo Inda, Barca are keen but only if they can land the France international for less than €100 million.
That seems unlikely, although there does appear to be friction between Pogba and manager Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
His agent Mino Raiola has already offered Pogba to Real Madrid but Zinedine Zidane’s side are unwilling to negotiate, while Barcelona will if there is a chance of getting the price right.
Griezmann in, Denis Suarez out
Back in Spain and the Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona talk is getting louder and the latest update comes from Cat Radio.
They claim that the club have already agreed a deal with Griezmann to move to Camp Nou in the summer and Ernesto Valverde is a big fan.
Griezmann’s arrival will means departures, with Denis Suarez the first name mentioned in the report and Jasper Cillessen may also follow him out of the club.
