Mino Raiola has been ‘vehement in his efforts to sell’ Paul Pogba based on what Barcelona vice-president Jordi Mestre has read.
There has been a lot of speculation about the United superstar’s future in recent months with Pep Guardiola even claiming Raiola offered City the chance to sign Pogba in January.
Pogba’s relationship with boss Jose Mourinho has come under scrutiny and the Frenchman went as far to say ‘there are things that I cannot say otherwise I will get fined’ when asked if he was happy at Old Trafford last month.
Barcelona have not disguised their interest in signing the 25-year-old with the club’s mouthpieces, Sport and Mundo Deportivo, running a series of stories this summer.
Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique have both talked up the transfer in the last week, which brings back memories of Barca’s very public pursuit of Liverpool superstar Philippe Coutinho.
And while Mestre stopped short of saying Pogba wanted to move to the Nou Camp, he did address the speculation that has dominated the headlines in Catalonia this summer.
“We do not talk about players that are not at our club,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
“What I read is that Pogba is unhappy at Manchester United and his agent, Mino Raiola, has been more vehement in efforts to sell him,
“But I have not read that he says he wants to sign for the club. Yes, he is a player of unquestionable quality in the eyes of all the world.”
