With less than a year from the end of his contract at Manchester United, Paul Pogba promises to be one of the main attractions for the next few months as many are cited in his footsteps.
Returned to Manchester United in 2016 after four years at Juventus Paul Pogba is just a year away from the end of his contract with the Red Devils. And logically given his contractual situation, the French international could have left as early as this summer transfer window, and especially at Paris Saint-Germain. It has indeed been announced by several sources that the France international is close to a deal with the Paris club. Only then, no concrete contact between PSG and Manchester United took place, and the residents of the Parc des Princes finally abandoned the track after the arrival of Lionel Messi , who arrived free after the end of his contract at FC Barcelona . Therefore, Paul Pogba is still at Manchester United and will be free to initial a contract with a new team from next January.
Several clubs are snapping up Paul Pogba
However, for now, Manchester United refuses to abandon its French international. Indeed, after it was announced this summer that Paul Pogba would not leave for less than € 80 million, the Mancunian club does not despair of convincing its player to extend his contract.

And for good reason, Paul Pogba is an extremely courted and followed player. Real Madrid and Juventus are announced in his footsteps with a view to enlisting him free.

We are currently in this scenario.
And now it's FC Barcelona which would concretely join the race for the signing of Paul Pogba . This is what Mundo Deportivo reported on Monday. In addition to confirming the interests of PSG , Real Madrid and Juventus , as well as the will of Manchester United to extend it, the Spanish media indicates that the French would be one of the Blaugrana's dream targets. His qualities as a footballer would naturally appeal to the Catalan club, but also his marketing weight. It now remains to be seen whether Barça will really be able to compete with the other contenders in this case given their fragile finances. Either way, all indications are that the soap opera surrounding the future of Paul Pogba promises to occupy attention in the coming months. During this time, the player does not let anything show on the field, although the backstage must certainly be agitated. To be continued…
