Barcelona refuse to rule out signing Paul Pogba from Manchester United

   Pogba captained United to a 2-1 win over Leicester yesterday

The France World Cup victor, who moved to Old Trafford in 2016 in a US$114 million (RM465.5 million) transfer deal, has been linked with another big-money move, to Barcelona, following a series of apparent fallouts with United manager Jose Mourinho.

Pogba was a real leader with and without the ball on Friday night and with this added pressure of being captain, it seems to have brought the best out of a player who's never lacked confidence. "You have to know one thing: a player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he's not happy".

"I have been critical of him at times for overplaying and throwing in a few too many flicks and tricks when they are not needed, but he turned in a more mature performance against Leicester".

A tense relationship with José Mourinho appears to be at the heart of it. Questions about their relationship were raised last season and the midfielder is said to have been annoyed by his manager's comments after the World Cup.

"Paul is one of the options, third season, made in the academy, understands the club, the culture, good relationship with his teammates and a good example today putting himself in the team".

"There are things and there are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined", Pogba told the British press after the Leicester match in a rare occasion he has stopped to speak with them.

He said on LFC TV: "It is a soap opera at Manchester United isn't it?"

There's still time to do business'.

FC Barcelona has left the door open for Paul Pogba should he wish to leave Manchester United before the end of the LaLiga transfer window.

Former United defender and Sky Sports pundit Neville said: "The club have spent £700m since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, it's a fortune". And now it is even more of a dream come true, wearing this armband, because of the past: the players who have played here and those who have been wearing this.
