You might suppose Manchester United are not all that rocked given that the Star reported recently:

The source of this latest story is Pogba’s loquacious agent Mino Raiola, who opines:

Speaking to Le Parisien, he said: “No, Ligue 1 is not too small for Paul Pogba. For Paul, all the big clubs are interesting regardless of which championship they play in. We respect the Spanish championship, the French championship, England, Italy and Germany.”

So. Utter balls, then. It’s just the Mr 10% trying to create a bidding war for his star turn.

Over in the Daily Mail, Pogba is heading to Barcelona. Let’s hope PSG don’t sue for breach of contract:

Barcelona president Marc Bartomeu is plotting a bid for Juventus star Paul Pogba worth a total of £144million…

That story is rooted in Barcelona mouthpiece Sport:
