Despite having already made a number of class signings so far this summer, Barcelona don’t seem to be slowing down in their attempts to bolster their squad for this season. 

Players like Clement Lenglet, Arturo Vidal, Arthur Melo and Malcom have all finalised moves to the Nou Camp this summer, and it looks like the club still have their eye out for other potential signings.

As per Don Balon, the Spanish giants are eyeing up a swoop for Man United and France star Paul Pogba, and that they are ready to make a €110M move for the midfielder.

The report also notes that Lionel Messi himself has given the club the thumbs up to launch this raid for Pogba, and that the Argentine would be happy to be on the same team as the Red Devils star.

Messi has given Barca the go ahead to launch a swoop for World Cup-winner Pogba

Pogba would be a superb signing for Barca, with his heroics at the World Cup with France this summer showing that the midfielder has cut it against some of the world’s best.

The Red Devils star, who scored the third in Les Bleus’ 4-2 win over Croatia in the final, played superbly in every game he appeared in, as him and his teammates helped France secure their second-ever world title.

Despite not managing to impress every Man United fan since his move to the club from Juventus in the summer of 2016, Pogba still definitely has what it takes to cut it at Barca.

Now all that remains to be seen is whether Barca end up actually making their move for the Frenchman, and whether United are willing to accept it.
