Man Utd boss Mourinho told confidants Paul Pogba should be sold

BARCELONA could yet sign Paul Pogba with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho happy to let him go, a bombshell report has claimed.

Barcelona want Manchester United star Pogba who, during his two years at Old Trafford, has seen his relationship with Mourinho continue to worsen.

The Red Devils boss regularly dropped the France international last season, selecting Scott McTominay during their two crunch Champions League matches against Sevilla.

Since then, Barcelona have intensified their efforts to land Pogba, launching a bid of £45million plus Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina for the 25-year-old.

Reports have also claimed that United have been left furious with Barca for making an approach before the Premier League transfer deadline tomorrow.

And the Daily Mail claim Mourinho told confidants back in April that he would sell Pogba.

However, the decision is not in his hands.

Mourinho wants Anthony Martial out but United chiefs are seriously opposed. They feel the France international has bucketloads of potential and, despite struggling in recent years, can make the grade.

And it is a similar case with Pogba.

The Daily Mail claim United are adamant he will not be going anywhere, despite Mino Raiola's best efforts to broker a move.

Pogba's importance to United goes beyond what he does on the pitch.

He is a commercial goldmine and his stock has never been higher after he helped France win the World Cup in Russia.

Meanwhile, speaking recently, Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde talked up Pogba amid uncertainty over his United future.

Valverde said: "Pogba is a great player, who is on another team and we are always very respectful of the players on other teams.

"We respect the player and the teams they are on."

United are working on transfers with less than 24 hours to go.

Reports have claimed they are now in talks with Chelsea over Kurt Zouma having given up on Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Mina.
