Transfer: Juventus agree swap with Manchester United for Pogba, Pjanic

Transfer: Juventus agree swap with Manchester United for Pogba, Pjanic

Sky Italia claimed that the Red Devils rebuffed an offer of £45million with centre-back Yerry Mina and midfielder Andre Gomes also included.

The France World Cup victor has been linked with a move to the Nou Camp amid speculation over his future at Old Trafford.

It seems inconceivable that United would let go of their record signing, and Pogba's camp accept it will be hard to complete a deal before the transfer window closes.

The Red Devils paid big money to snare Pogba away from Italian champions Juventus two years ago, but he has been subject to criticism at Old Trafford, while there are also question marks over his relationship with Jose Mourinho.

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

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

According to the Daily Mail, the Portuguese Football Association is considering a move for Mourinho, whose future at United could be in the balance, to take over the national team's hot seat.

Paul Pogba is becoming unsettled at Manchester United after feeling manager Jose Mourinho unfairly criticised him this summer, sources told ESPN FC.

"We respect the player and the teams they are on".

"I think the World Cup is the ideal habitat for a player like him to give [their] best", Mourinho said.

He goes on to report that United do not want to sell the "important" player as they see him as the franchise of the club. And with just three days until the close of the transfer market in England, Barcelona have very little time to close a deal.
