Manchester United have reportedly responded to Barcelona’s offer for Paul Pogba by turning it down as they have no intention of selling him.
The Frenchman was originally brought back to the club by Jose Mourinho two summers ago for a then world record fee.
Pogba’s first season at United was clearly a transitional one while his second suffered a blip with an ill timed injury just when he was hitting form.
During the World Cup though for France, the midfielder showed the world just what he’s capable of and there are hopes he can continue that form for his club.
The Spanish champions have clearly been impressed by his performances and have bid for him according to Di Marzio though it is a strange bid.
United have turned down a €50m + Yerry Mina & André Gomes offer for Paul Pogba from Barcelona.

The La Liga giants clearly don’t value Paul as highly as the Red Devils do but it’s good to see Ed Woodward work on keeping the club’s star players.
He similarly managed to hold onto David de Gea and it’s understood this is the same kind of situation with the Frenchman not going to be allowed to leave.
Manchester United were said to be interested in Yerry Mina but it’s still a bizarre bid since it’s as though Barcelona are just getting rid of the players they don’t want.
