Man United have reportedly rejected a ridiculous £40m plus Yeri Mina and Andre Gomez from Barcelona as a part exchange for World Cup winner, Paul Pogba. Pogba was speculated to have become disillusioned with lifestyle under Jose Mourinho reportedly sanctioned a move by his agaent to find him a new club.
Various reports emerged on Twitter yesterday that Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola was in Manchester to table the Barcelona deal to the United hierarchy before news of the ridiculous offer broke on the internet. Man United are unwilling to let their most prized asset leave especially when they are not guaranteed of a replacement with few days left before transfer window closes in England.
Mourinho is currently not satisfied with his current squad and want more major signings would not watch his star midfielder leave this summer. Let’s recall that Pogba became the World’s Most Expensive player in the world when he signed for Man United from Juventus in the summer of 2016, and have since fall short of the form which made him force his way into the Top Ten Best player in the World during his days at Juventus.
Pogba might have realized Mourinho is not the right manager to achieve his potential after his latest snub by FIFA in the recent Balon d’or nomination lists. If reports about Pogba’s willingness to leave are true, it may become worrisome for Man United and the fans this season
