Man Utd transfer news: Paul Pogba ‘asking price set’ as Real Madrid plot Barcelona hijack

The France international has been heavily linked with an Old Trafford exit following several bust-ups with Jose Mourinho last season.

Pogba was unhappy at the defensive role he was asked to play and after starring for France in their World Cup triumph, there are concerns he may not reach his potential if he’s not given the chance to flourish in an attacking setup.

Reports in Spain have suggested Barcelona are winning the race for his signature, with Lionel Messi believed to be keen on the signing as they seek creativity in midfield.

Andres Iniesta and Paulinho have left the club and with Philippe Coutinho expected to be utilised further forward, Pogba is seen as the ideal candidate to fill the void in the middle.
