Pogba wants to secure a move to Barcelona and is willing to lower his wages in order to do so

The same report also states that Pogba is rated by Man United at £134M (€150M), a price that Barcelona are stated as being unwilling to pay.

With Andres Iniesta now gone, and stars such as Andre Gomes and Denis Suarez failing to deliver consistently, this news will be very welcome from Barca.

Despite the fact they manage to secure a league and cup double last season, Barca looked very shaky in parts of the season, with Ernesto Valverde’s side relying on luck more often than not to get them through game.

Not since the days of Xavi have the club had a played that is able to control the game like Pogba, so signing him could be a step forward for the club as they look to go all the way on all fronts next season.

Pogba willing to reduce his wages says a lot about him as a player and a person, and is something that will surely see him loved by Barca fans should he move to the Camp Nou this summer.
