Manchester United 'reject Barcelona swap deal' involving Paul Pogba and Yerry Mina

Manchester United 'reject Barcelona swap deal' involving Paul Pogba and Yerry Mina

It is claimed that if Manchester United can find a replacement quickly, they will agree to sell Pogba.

"Pogba came back to United with this great expectation, that he had to show the world how good he is straight away", Brown told The Express.

The Frenchman has often been criticized for his subpar performances at Old Trafford, but in recent months, much of the criticism from fans and media has switched to Mourinho, especially in the wake of Pogba's stellar performance in France's World Cup winning effort. There is also no indication at this stage that Pogba is willing to agitate for a transfer.

Barcelona are hoping to add Paul Pogba to their list of summer signings, but it is unlikely that Manchester United will allow the World Cup victor to go without a swap deal in place. Juventus could reportedly offer Miralem Pjanic as part of a deal.

His working relationship with Mourinho has failed to flourish while World Cup suggested United's manager should be doing more to bring the best out of the club's most expensive player. "It's about him giving the best he has to give". Thank you. He's my friend, I grew up with him.

"The players are in a closed camp, isolated from the external world, from commercial compromises, and every possible influence".

"During a season, you can have a big match then a smaller match, then one even smaller, then you can lose your focus, you can lose your concentration, then comes a big match again".

United are aware that it could be a ploy by Pogba's representative to secure him a new contract on the same terms as £500,000-a-week top earner Alexis Sanchez.

But this isn't the first time the 25-year-old's future at Old Trafford has been in doubt.
