Barcelona working on swap deal for Manchester United star

Barcelona are working on a swap deal for Paul Pogba. Although it is not mentioned as to who Barcelona could offer, the Catalan club are said to be working tirelessly to get the Frenchman.

Manchester United are in quite a delicate situation given that Pogba’s contract ends next season.

The midfielder has hit peak form for both club and county, with just one year left on his current deal.

A stellar personal campaign for France in the Euros has only amped up the interest in the enigmatic French star.

United don’t really have too many favourable options in this case. They can cash in on him now and take the fee to get a replacement. The other option is that they can look to keep him with the hope that he signs an extension.

Barcelona are the latest club to show an interest in the World Cup winner.

However, they are looking at a possible swap deal given the financial mess they are in.

They cannot register new signings and a new contract for Lionel Messi is also being held up. However, it’s not really mentioned as to who Barcelona will offer in this swap deal.

Barca president Joan Laporta wants to add a star player ahead of the new season and Pogba is one name that he wants. However, Manchester United will have to figure out a solution here that does not end up in a loss for them.
