Manchester United Reject Pogba Bid - Raiola Still Working On Barca Deal

Pogba "has intimated in discussions with team-mates that he is unhappy with Mourinho" according to the report, which goes on to say Mourinho is concerned by Raiola's influence on the player.

Subsequently, Barcelona were reported to be interested in the player and a bid worth £45 million + Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina was placed.

Referencing reports that Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, is looking at the Nou Camp as a possible new home for his player, Ferdinand said: "Don't you dare allow this ED..."

There are strong rumours of Pogba's relationship with United boss Jose Mourinho breaking down beyond retrieval at the root of this transfer talk.

After five seasons without a Premier League title, the pressure is on Manchester United and Jose Mourinho to put up a real fight for the big prize but major questions remain over his team.

The 2018/19 season has started terribly for United and they haven't even kicked a ball yet.

United can still receive offers for players after Thursday, but will not be able to pursue targets to replace Pogba.

Rio Ferdinand has issued a public call to Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward about the club's business this summer.

"Perhaps he needs to say "congratulations on winning your World Cup medal, but forget about that, because now it's about Manchester United".

Barca director Albert Soler claims a deal for Pogba was agreed 12 months ago that would give them priority to purchase the midfielder for around £85 million. Pogba was underperforming and Mourinho benched him in crucial games over the course of the last season.

Pogba shone for France at the World Cup away from Mourinho's influence, but was then angered to hear his manager criticising him from afar.
