Despite his reportedly fractious relationship with Jose Mourinho, a player of Pogba's quality would take plenty of replacing, especially considering that there is now less than 72 hours until the transfer window closes for Premier League clubs.

United could do a lot worse than attempting to bring the 27-year-old to Old Trafford although there would be competition for his signature.

Now, as per a report by Gianluca Di Marzio, Barcelona tried to make an offer for Pogba, which included two of their players and cash, but United rejected the same.

Having won the World Cup this summer, Pogba is said to have become increasingly frustrated with Mourinho's attempts to play down the achievement.

As of Sunday morning, the Carr Fire had destroyed more than 1,600 buildings and consumed more than 154,000 acres. As for the "bad environmental laws", it's unclear whether Trump means California laws or federal laws.

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop explains why Paul Pogba might want out at Manchester United and how Jose Mourinho could factor into his decision.

But he was dropped for a crucial Champions League tie with Sevilla in February in favour of 21-year-old Scott McTominay and was substituted during disappointing defeats at Tottenham and Newcastle as City ran away with the title.

The information is that Pogba's manager, Mino Raiola, will hold a meeting with representatives of Manchester United to handle the deal, which would turn around around 100 million pounds (about $ 481 million).

The 2018/19 season has started terribly for United and they haven't even kicked a ball yet.

Manchester United have offered to pay just £22.3m for Arsenal target Jerome Boateng because the defender is demanding a huge £12.5m-a-year contract, according to the Sun.

However, late arrivals remain a possibility, especially after Calum Chambers was allowed to leave for Fulham on a season-long loan yesterday.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is naturally understood to be unwilling to sell club-record signing Pogba - a stance backed by former defender Rio Ferdinand, just as a move for Alderweireld would be.

It adds that another of Raiola's clients, Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti is wanted by United. They signed Arturo Vidal last week, but have still been linked with the Manchester United midfielder.
