Barcelona are reportedly readying up a massive bid for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba. The rumors around Pogba’s relationship being less that stellar with manager Jose Mourinho haven’t quieted down, and so the rumors around a potential Pogba exit haven’t quieted down either.

According to The Independent, Barcelona want him this August but may try again in January, much like the way Philippe Coutinho was signed.

Apparently Barcelona have been “made well aware” of Pogba’s “issues” with manager Mourinho which have left him considering an Old Trafford exit.

Just the logical concept of United choosing Mourinho over Pogba is insane to me, but nevertheless the reports have persisted. If the rumors are based on somewhat factual information, then this would obviously be a no brainer for Barcelona.

Pogba always seemed to be an incredibly obvious fit at Barcelona. With his incredible athleticism and pace, the Frenchmen would be a great fit in the Barcelona scheme should the deal happen, whether this summer, or in January.
