Manchester United fans were largely unconcerned with Barcelona’s bid for Paul Pogba especially due to the kind of money involved in the deal.
The Spanish side tend to get whichever players they want sooner or later as they proved with Liverpool’s Phillip Coutinho amongst others.
United’s interest in Yerry Mina this summer and Andre Gomes in previous windows was apparently attempted to be taken advantage of by Barcelona.
The two players were offered in a player-plus-cash deal that also had £45m involved but definitely did not worry supporters.
Pogba’s relationship with Jose Mourinho is said to have broken down once more with the player being touted with a move abroad.
"FC Barcelona offer £45million plus Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes for Paul Pogba."

Imagine thinking @FCBarcelona would get Pogba for 50 Mil. You couldn't even buy his barber for that much.

Paul has repeatedly told fans to not pay attention to rumours on previous occasions and it seems to have worked with this reaction.
The former Juventus man is widely expected to help lead the Red Devils to a title challenge this season in a similar manner he did with France at the World Cup in Russia.
The midfielder’s form this summer is exactly why Barcelona are said to be interested in him as he put in a man of the match display in the final.
