Manchester United reject '£45m plus two players' Barcelona offer for Paul Pogba

Sky Sports in Italy are reporting that United have been offered £45m and the Barcelona duo of defender Yerry Mina and midfielder Andre Gomes in exchange for Pogba. Raiola is known to have approached United about a raise for Pogba after Sanchez moved to Old Trafford from Arsenal in January.

The offer has been rejected by United, with the player who move to Manchester in a world record £89m deal in the summer of 2016 still viewed as a key figure for the Old Trafford club despite being dropped by manager Jose Mourinho for key games last season.

Pogba, a favourite of executive vice chairman Ed Woodward, has three years left on his contract with the option of a further 12 months, and the club are under no pressure to sell.

But Pogba would bounce back this summer, impressing for France as they went on to win the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Instead of praising Pogba's performances, Mourinho urged him to "understand" why he had done so well in Russian Federation and appeared to suggest the player lacked the same focus for his club.

However, Pogba continues to be linked with a move away from the 20-time English champions after two mixed seasons and reports of fallouts with manager Jose Mourinho. However, the deadline in England is 5pm on Thursday, leaving United little or no time to sign a replacement unless they meant to replace him with new £52m signing Fred. There is also no indication at this stage that Pogba is willing to agitate for a transfer.
