Barcelona & Paul Pogba
It’s been a rumour which has been flying around for months.
Paul Pogba could leave Manchester United to join FC Barcelona.
25-year-old Pogba is under contract at Old Trafford until 2021.
There seems little interest from Man United to sell the midfielder anytime soon.
Yet, amid consistent criticism over his performances, the Pogba to Barcelona stories refuse to subside.
Guillem Balague talks about the possible deal
Sky Sports’ Spanish expert Guillem Balague has posted an update on the Pogba story on YouTube.
Balague has confirmed that Barcelona continue to monitor Pogba’s situation at Old Trafford.
But does that mean a deal with Man United is close? No, definitely not.
Barcelona have significant financial constraints hindering any move for the World Cup winner.
84% of Barcelona’s budget already goes towards players wages, reports Balague.
So unless the Catalans can somehow swell their coffers, or alternatively sell off some other high-earning assets, any deal for Pogba is currently beached.

Man United 1 – Wolves 1
It was another disappointing Saturday at Old Trafford.
Man United dropped two more Premier League points in a 1-1 home draw against Wolves.
Joao Moutinho levelled for the visitors after Fred opened for Man United in the first half.
Wolves are a tougher opponent than you might think.
