Mino Raiola is reportedly set to discuss a £100million transfer taking his client Paul Pogba to Barcelona with his current club Manchester United.
This is according to a big claim made by the Daily Star, who suggest the France international’s future at Old Trafford remains in doubt as he attracts interest not only from Barca, but from Paris Saint-Germain and his old club Juventus as well.

It is well documented that Pogba has struggled in his time at United so far, looking a far from ideal fit for Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho and the type of football he likes his sides to play.
The 25-year-old could be much better off at a team like Barcelona, who also urgently need a new midfielder after losing club legend Andres Iniesta this summer and also loaning out Paulinho.
Now a World Cup winner with the French national side this summer, Pogba will surely feel he has little more to prove to Mourinho after playing a key role in his country’s success on the biggest stage.
It remains to be seen if a big deal like this can be done so late in the transfer window, with United surely unlikely to sell players after the Premier League transfer deadline on August 9, even if European clubs can continue to buy until the end of the month.
The Daily Star also throws up the possibility of two swap deals United may be able to broker for Barcelona defender Yerry Mina or PSG midfielder Marco Verratti, the latter of whom is also a client of Raiola, though exchanges like this are pretty rare.
