Manchester United boost: Barcelona’s accounts show club unable to finance move for Paul Pogba

FC Barcelona have announced a projected wage bill of €633 million and profits of just €11 million, according to the club’s press release.

The Catalan Giants have therefore been left with little room to finance a large transfer for a player such as Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.

The World Cup winner would command a fee of around €150m and extortionate wages.

Over the past few weeks, it has been well documented that Paul Pogba is unhappy at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman has fallen out with Jose Mourinho and has been unable to recapture his form from his time at Juventus.

Meanwhile, FC Barcelona have been pondering over the prospect of making a move for Pogba.

However, the Spanish champions’ latest figures show that a move for the 25-year-old looks very unlikely.

Despite posting a revenue of €916 million, their wage bill stands at €633 million.

The Spanish league sets salary caps based on a club’s revenue – leaving Barcelona at the maximum of their current cap.

Along with their profits of just €11 million, a transfer for Paul Pogba looks out of the question for now.

Manchester United 0-0 Valencia CF


Jose Mourinho slipped to a fourth home game without a win for the first time in his career.

Manchester United slogged it out with Valencia at Old Trafford but were unable to find a way past the Spanish club.

The draw maintains the pressure on Mourinho with the performance also drawing criticism.

Valencia grew in confidence in Manchester throughout the night with United continuing to look void of ideas and desire.

The point leaves United sat second in Group H, two points behind Juventus who defeated Young Boys 3-0.
