Paul Pogba has told his Manchester United team-mates that he wants to sign for FC Barcelona this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the French midfielder is keen on a move to the Spanish side and that he has even agreed a contract with the La Liga outfit worth £350,000 a week.

The same report says that the 25-year-old has told Manchester United chief Ed Woodward that he wants to leave the club this summer after his mixed campaign last term.

Pogba came in for criticism for failing to produce consistent form for Manchester United last season, but he was back to his best as he helped France to win the World Cup in Russia this summer.

The same article says that Manchester United have no intention of letting Pogba leave the club this summer just two years after he returned to the club.

According to the same story, Pogba has become “disillusioned” with life under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United and is keen on a move away.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing to kick off the new Premier League season when they take on Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday night.
