Barcelona’s stunning £100M contract offer to Paul Pogba revealed

Barcelona’s stunning contract offer to Paul Pogba revealed

Barcelona have reportedly agreed terms with Paul Pogba as they step up their bid to land the Manchester United star.

The La Liga champions have had an offer of £45million plus Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes rejected. But according to reports in Italy, the player has already agreed to terms with Barcelona. Should United eventually accept an offer, Pogba would earn €100m (£100m) over five years at the Nou Camp.

Although the Premier League transfer window closes on Thursday afternoon, Barcelona will have until the end of the month to sign Pogba. The World Cup winning midfielder returned to United in 2016 following a spell in Italy with Juventus. Paul Pogba could leave Manchester United this summer. But he has struggled to settle under Jose Mourinho with his displays for France this summer simply highlighting his ineffectiveness for his club last season. United are interested in signing Mina as they look to reinforce their defensive options but are also considering offers for Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld and Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng. Everton and Lyon are also chasing Mina who is expected to leave Barcelona despite only joining in January. Gomes is another who has been told he can leave the Nou Camp during this window. United are interested in Barcelona’s Yerry Mina. Furthermore, a report in Barcelona-based newspaper Mundo Deportivo suggests Ousmane Dembele and Ivan Rakitic could also be offered in exchange for Pogba. Although Barca is reluctant to sell either player, they are desperate to land Pogba. But they are expected to have a difficult time convincing either the Croatian or the Frenchman to move to the Premier League. Should Manchester United sell Paul Pogba to Barcelona?

Manchester United could have to pay up to £75m for Harry Maguire – because Leicester are reportedly holding out for the same sum Liverpool paid for Virgil Van Dijk. Jose Mourinho has less than a week to add to his squad ahead of the new campaign with the transfer window closing on August 9. Maguire’s valuation has rocketed since his impressive World Cup campaign and Leicester will now hold out for £75m because they view on the same level as Van Dijk. The Dutchman became the most expensive defender of all time when he joined Liverpool in January and Castles claims Leicester want to cash in to the same level.

“From what I’m told, the pricing, if there is to be a price for him, will be £75m – they value him at the same level as Virgil van Dijk,” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast. “That should probably give you an indication about why Jose Mourinho is reluctant to go down that route. “It’ll affect Everton, they’ve gone a long way in negotiations with Barcelona for (Yerry) Mina who they want to sign. “If they don’t get him they’ll have to move elsewhere, and interestingly one of their targets is Marcos Rojo, who United are prepared to sell.

“So, we’ve got these last few days of the window and Manchester United are scrabbling around trying to satisfy their manager to a certain extent, and what they are doing is going to impact on the other Premier League clubs who are chasing a centre-back.” Barcelona defender Mina is also believed to be on United’s target list as well as Toby Alderweireld from Spurs.
