Spanish media Mundo Deportivo have reported that Fc Barcelona are keen on signing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, but for free after his contract expires next summer.
Despite previously admitting his desire to play for Real Madrid, the report claims that Pogba is also a big admirer of Barcelona and would be open to a switch next summer.
Only last week the Les Bleu star reiterated his Los Blancos dream while on international duty.
His admiration and love for Barcelona arch rivals Real Madrid has never been a secret though.
“I heard a lot of noise that I was going to leave and I was going to leave to clubs left and right. Today, I am still at Manchester United and I am fighting to try to take the club even higher. Yes, all footballers would like to play for Real Madrid. Maybe it is a dream. It is a dream for me, why not one day?” said Pogba.
United do have the option of triggering a one-year extension, but this hasn’t stopped Barcelona eyeing up a summer swoop for Pogba.
But according to news from Spain, the Camp Nou giants want to tempt Pogba – who has long been linked with Barca’s El Clasico rivals Real Madrid – to Spain, as they are somewhat strapped for cash and would love to sign such a talented player for free.
In fact, they could reach an agreement with Pogba as early as January, as he will then enter the final six months of his existing deal and is allowed to hold talks with other clubs.
Despite previously admitting his desire to play for Real Madrid, the report has gone ahead to claim that Pogba is also a big admirer of Barcelona and would be open to a switch next summer.
