Arsenal preparing late £89m bid for 21 year-old

Cape Town - Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly turned down an approach from Barcelona for star midfielder Paul Pogba.

United could do a lot worse than attempting to bring the 27-year-old to Old Trafford although there would be competition for his signature.

The agent of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba believes he can broker a £100million transfer deal to sell the France global to Barcelona.

Mourinho said in July that Pogba got better as the World Cup progressed because the stakes only got higher and higher, whereas the ups and downs of the club season caused him to lose focus.

The Mail published a story earlier this week with the headline, "I want Paul Pogba out of Manchester United" - a misleadingly fabricated quote attributed to Raiola. They have been linked with a move for Grealish for some time, with The Sun now reporting chairman Daniel Levy has finally lodged a bid for the 22-year-old.

Even after the signing of Brazilian Malcolm and Chile's Arturo Vidal, Barcelona signaled they would continue to seek reinforcements in the market, and this time it is Frenchman Paul Pogba, now at Manchester United.

Manchester United have offered only €25m to Bayern Munich for Jerome Boateng, placing the Red Devils hugely off the German champions' asking price. The 29-year-old has sung the praises of our former boss, as well as revealing his desire to work with him once again some day.

Barcelona want Pogba to complete their midfield.

Let's be serious here, a bid of €50 million plus two players, who were on the fringe of first team football last season, was never going to suffice after the midfielder's impressive performance at the World Cup.

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

However, late arrivals remain a possibility, especially after Calum Chambers was allowed to leave for Fulham on a season-long loan yesterday.
