Barcelona hope to land Man Utd ace Paul Pogba on free transfer in summer but face competition from three European giants

BARCELONA hope to sign Manchester United ace Paul Pogba for FREE next summer but will be rivalled by top clubs, reports say.

The Catalan giants are eyeing a rebuild after losing mega star Lionel Messi.

And Pogba - who has less than a year left on his contract - is someone who they feel would be a star at Barca.

According to Fichajes.net, Pogba's name came up in conversations between his agent Mino Raiola and Barca club president Joan Laporta.

The super agent informed Laporta that Pogba would certainly be subject to a bidding war.

But should Barca put an offer forward, he will try and convince the Frenchman to decide on Barca's offer before other proposals.

Barca would have to see off challenges from rivals Real Madrid, super team Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.

But Barca and Juve's financial problems put them in a worse position than the Parisians and even Real.


FREE BETS: GET OVER £2,000 IN NEW CUSTOMER DEALS

Barca could offer Pogba star man status with less wages, but PSG's economic power allows them to put forward a bigger, more lucrative offer.

Real appear to be in a better financial position than Barca too.

Los Blancos are plotting two HUGE free transfers next summer: Pogba and PSG's Kylian Mbappe, whose contract also expires next summer.

Both would almost certainly cost Real a fortune in agent and signing on fees.

Despite the reported tug of war that is set to commence should Pogba not sign a new contract at Man Utd, Mathias has stated his younger brother is fully focused and 'feeling very good' at the Red Devils.

He told El Chiringuito TV: "Paul has not decided yet whether to stay or not next summer.

"It’s his decision - he’s feeling very good at Man United now, this season… then let’s see. Let’s see when will be time to decide."
