His agent, Mino Raiola, is expected in Manchester this week to negotiate the transfer of Pogba out of Old Trafford.

Despite Barcelona having announced an agreement to sign Chile global midfielder Arturo Vidal from Bayern Munich, Barcelona coach Valverde praised Pogba and refused to rule out the La Liga Champions signing more players before the end of the summer transfer window. The Manchester United and France midfielder is thought to be upset with his manager's assessment of his performances during the World Cup.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Juventus are desperate to re-sign the World Cup victor this summer, and the Italian champions will offer United the chance to sign highly-rated midfielder Pjanic as part of the deal.

The report suggests that the World Cup victor had contacted Manchester United supremo Ed Woodward to tell him that he'd like to leave Old Trafford this summer.

But it appears that Pogba has been stirred by Barcelona's interest.

On the subject of Kepa, Sarri added with a smile: "If I don't know anything about Courtois, I don't know anything about Kepa". We have only three days to prepare for the next match and it will be very important for us.

Ferdinand, who made more than 450 appearances for the club, wants Pogba to stay and Spurs defender Toby Alderweireld to come in.

The Spanish transfer window closes on 31st August but the Premier League deadline is Thursday, leaving United little time to replace star man Pogba should Barcelona get their man. The latest chapter saw the Portuguese chastise players who remained on holiday while the club's U.S. tour disintegrated into acrimony and disarray.

Paul Pogba was underperforming at Manchester United last season and he was rightly benched when his attitude didn't seem right. "Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody".

"The World Cup takes one month", the Manchester United manager explained recently.
