Why Barcelona could withdraw from Pogba’s chase




Barcelona might be forced out of the pursuit for embattled Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba as a result of the huge financial commitment it could be to them.

The World Cup winner is believed to be desperate to leave the Old Trafford following his outburst with manager Jose Mourinho.

The fact that he was embarrassed before the whole squad and told he would never captain the Red Devils again gives him enough reason find his way out.

It was revealed that Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola is working hard to make sure his client finds a new place where he will find peace with Barcelona already being contacted.

With the Spanish giant already making their interest known, they would be priced out because the £89m player could cost them about £100m, aside from the £12m-a-year deal that will be signed.

However, the Spanish giants look set to give way for French side PSG as President Nasser Al-Khelaifi has made his interest known at any price.

Meanwhile former club, Juventus remain an option for the World Cup winner as they are willing to have him back following their capture of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

Pogba was reported to have exchanged words with Jose Mourinho after they were dumped out of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.
