Barcelona respond to Paul Pogba move talk
Amidst rumours that Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba wants to leave the club in the January transfer window, Barcelona club president Josep Bartomeu has responded to rumours that Pogba's next destination will be the Nou Camp. The Times has published an article detailing comments from the Barca president on a move for the player.
Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba have had a high profile falling out in recent weeks and it is understood that the French World Cup winning midfielder wants to leave Old Trafford. Videos appeared on Instagram last week showing Pogba arguing with Mourinho in a training session.
Barcelona are long-term admirers of Pogba and are believed to be in the race to sign the midfielder if he becomes available for transfer.
“I read these rumours – not just Pogba but a lot of players. Most of the teams don’t want to sell their players. They want to grow,” Bartomeu quipped.
“When you hear from agents that a certain player is on the market – and I am not saying that about this player, but generally – I will sometimes call the CEO and say ‘Is it true you want to sell this player?’. Usually they say ‘No way, not for sale’ and that’s the end of it.”
