Lionel Messi is urging Barcelona to make a move for Man United and France star Paul Pogba, after Antoien Griezmann snubbed the Blaugrana earlier this summer.
Don Balon are stating that the French forward is set to stay at Atletico Madrid and that the player turn snubbed a move to Barca in favour of that decision, with it also being stated that the Argentine has suggested Pogba as a player for the club to pursue next.
The news outlet are also stating that Messi believes that there aren’t many better midfielders out there than Pogba, and that Man United are willing to let the player leave this summer.
Don Balon have reported in the past that United rate Pogba at around €90M, a fair price for a player who very may have a chance of winning the Ballon D’Or one day.
Pogba has failed to impress all of United’s fans since his move from Juventus in 2016, with the midfielder often being slated by some fans for his ability to consistently perform for the Red Devils.
The French international has also failed to widely impress during his time with France at the World Cup this summer, with a lot of fans questioning as to why he is selected to start every game for Les Bleus.
Despite all this, Pogba is still fairly young, and there’s no reason why he can’t develop as time goes by and, one day, become one of the greatest player’s in the world.
