Barcelona will offer £50 million for in-demand Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, and plan to loan him back to the Serie A champions for a season, according to the Daily Mail.

It is suggested in the Mail that the only other destination which Pogba sees as viable would be to Premier League leaders Chelsea, despite the 22-year-old Frenchman being one of the most wanted men in Europe.

La Liga giants Barcelona are currently serving a FIFA imposed transfer embargo until the January transfer window, meaning any prospective deal for the former Manchester United man would have to be loaned back to Juve until the 2016/17 season.

Pogba still has four years to run on his contract at the Old Lady, though he has listened to the offer from Barcelona and is yet to decide on his future.

The Mail also claim that Lionel Messi has recovered from a problem with swelling on his foot, training without any problems, and is likely to start against Celta Vigo this weekend.
