FC Barcelona are “serious” about signing Paul Pogba from Manchester United in the summer transfer window, Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol has confirmed.

The Red Devils are facing interested from the La Liga side in their World Cup winner after Pogba endured a difficult 2017-18 Premier League season under Jose Mourinho.

The Manchester United manager hasn’t been afraid to criticise Pogba in the British media since his club record move to Old Trafford.

Furthermore, the Portuguese head coach wasn’t overly enthusiastic of his assessment of the midfielder’s performances at the World Cup during his work as a pundit on RT during the major tournament.

La Liga champions FC Barcelona are thought to be interested in a deal to sign the Manchester United midfielder after the Catalan side were unable to sign Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann this summer.

Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol confirmed that FC Barcelona are keen on a deal to sign Pogba in the summer transfer window.

Solhekol wrote on Twitter: “Barcelona serious about wanting to sign Paul Pogba. Big problem for Man United is Spanish window does not close until 31 August. No wonder United voted against window closing early in England”

Manchester United re-signed Pogba in an £89m deal from Serie A champions Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window following Mourinho’s appointment as Louis van Gaal’s replacement.

The Red Devils lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley last term.
