  • Man Utd transfer news Paul Pogba Barcelona

Barcelona are hoping to add Paul Pogba to their list of summer signings, but it is unlikely that Manchester United will allow the World Cup victor to go without a swap deal in place.

The situation has not been helped by Mourinho's negative comments about Pogba's success with France at the World Cup, made on several occasions during United's recent tour of the U.S., that went down very badly with the player.

Earlier this week, there was talk of Manchester United looking at Mina too.

The Portuguese harshly criticised some of the younger players on tour with his team in the USA, while he has also warned the board over their lack of activity in the transfer window.

Earlier on Saturday, a small plane carrying two parents and their two children crashed in the nearby canton of Nidwalden. The mountainous area in south-eastern Switzerland is popular with hikers and skiers and includes a glacier.

It was reported yesterday that Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, has reassured Barcelona that he will get Paul Pogba to move to the Nou Camp.

As Pogba's relationship with Jose Mourinho grew increasingly strained last season, Sportsmail revealed in April that the United manager was prepared to sell him this summer.

"I don't think it's about us getting the best out of him", Mourinho told ESPN FC. Because it's closed for a month, where he can only think about football.

This is given the limited time available to sign a replacement for the French midfielder, according to Goal.

Because the transfer window on the continent doesn't close until August 31, United now face the prospect of a four-week battle to hold on to one of their most popular stars.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde refused to deny his club were interested in signing Pogba over the weekend, as he offered this answer to when quizzed about the midfielder.

But it seems United have turned down the shockingly-low bid.

Jose Mourinho tells ESPN FC that the World Cup was the ideal habitat for Paul Pogba as he could 'only think about football'.
