Barcelona are planning to table a £130million bid for Manchester United’s record signing Paul Pogba.

It has been a tumultuous season for the French World Cup winner, which saw him fall out with former United boss Jose Mourinho.
However, the Portuguese was axed in December before Pogba enjoyed a short upturn in form at the beginning of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign.
Pogba’s dip in performances mirrored those of United and the insidious atmosphere at Old Trafford came to a head when he was embroiled in a verbal jousting match with a supporter at the end of the final-day defeat by Cardiff.
