Paul Pogba news

Paul Pogba for long has been linked to a move to the Camp Nou. The Catalans have again ignited interest in Pogba. Barcelona are willing to offer Ivan Rakitic as a part of the deal. Reportedly Barcelona will test Manchester United with an opening bid of €90 million and Ivan Rakitic going the other way.

Paul Pogba has sprung to life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a torrid time under Jose Mourinho. Under Ole he has played in his favoured position and scored 8 goals and assisted another 6. The improvement is huge and he now enjoys life at United. Barcelona will have a tough time luring him out of the Old Trafford. '

Ivan Rakitic, on the other hand, might be on his way out of Barcelona. The Croatian is 31 and Barcelona might look to cash in on him. Making him a paperweight in a Pogba deal could work for all parties. It is also reported that if Pogba signs for Barcelona he will only be second to Messi on the wage bill. 

Paul Pogba would not easily be tempted to move out after the success and the run of games he has enjoyed under Ole. Yet Barcelona have options to test United's resolve.
