Barcelona agree deal with Juventus for Paul Pogba – report

Barcelona have agreed a deal with Juventus for the transfer of Paul Pogba, according to Diario Sport.

Representatives from the two clubs met on Tuesday and thrashed out the details of a move which will see the Frenchman make the switch in the summer of 2016.

Barcelona are currently under a transfer ban which means they cannot sign players until January 2016, although that didn’t stop them bringing in Aleix Vidal last month.

Pogba, or at least his agent, has made no secret of his desire to leave Juventus this summer and Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Manchester City have all reportedly expressed an interest in him on top of Barcelona.

It would be a shame for United to lose out on Pogba but the rumoured £80m fee for him would likely be too much for club officials.

After all, United lost him on a free transfer several years ago when he was just a scrawny teenager.

Van Gaal is said to be keen on bringing in the likes of Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger instead.
