Manchester United fans here in the Tavern are hoping to see Jose Mourinho spend more money in the summer, as silverware has been a miss for the Red Devils so far this season. 

The last few weeks have been surrounded with controversy at Old Trafford, as disagreements between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho continue to cast a shadow over United’s season. Indeed, it’s obvious that the Frenchman is heading for an inevitable exit out of Manchester this summer, but the destination is something that super-agent Mino Raiola is trying to sort out. And, it appears as if the Dutchman has received some positive news back on his search to find Pogba a new club, as according to reports in the Don Balon, Barcelona want to bring the midfielder to the Nou Camp.

Mino Raiola knocked on the door of Real Madrid offering the midfielder but it’s now believed that Barcelona are showing a desire to bring the Frenchman to Cataluna in the summer. Although, this does depend on the price they’d have to pay, as Barca are willing to sign Pogba if it costs less than the €120 million paid to bring him to Old Trafford.

Indeed, Barcelona chief Ernesto Valverde sees Paul Pogba as a short/medium term replacement for midfielder Sergio Busquets, after already bolstering their midfield with the addition of Philippe Coutinho in January.

But, our local Mancunians here in the Tavern are unmoved by the thought of seeing their world-record signing make the switch to Spain, after causing more controversy than success during his time in England.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

It looks as if this is Paul Pogba’s final season as a Manchester United player, as his agent continues to work tirelessly towards finding him a new team. Although, with the sum of money that United are likely to receive for the midfielder, supporters are hoping that this can be invested into a proven star after witnessing the inconsistencies of the Frenchman.
