Massive: Barcelona plotting a sumptuous £130m move for United’s Paul Pogba.
La Liga champions Barcelona are plotting a swap deal for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, according to Daily Mail UK.
The report also adds that the Catalans are ready to offload star midfielder Ivan Rakitic as a part of the exchange.
Real Madrid proved to be Pogba’s potential suitors and now it looks like their arch-rivals have entered the race.
Pogba’s fluctuating campaign
The French World Cup winner just endured an eventful season with no silverware in the end.
Despite being played down by ex-gaffer Jose Mourinho at the start, Pogba enjoyed a short spell of success under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.
However, the former Juventus star’s dip in form at the crucial stage of the league played a big part in United’s slump.
The French man has scored 15 goals and provided 9 assists this season across all competitions.
Ivan Rakitic to United?
The Croatian midfielder is no more an unfamiliar face to the Red Devils as he previously got linked with a move to Old Trafford.
In fact, both Mourinho and Solskjaer were believed to be big fans of the Croat and have always wanted him in the Premier League.
The 30-year-old continued his brilliant World Cup form at Camp Nou before getting hindered by a major Champions League setback.
More like his teammates, Rakitic was one of the few players who produced a terrible display in the Champions League semi-final defeat against Liverpool, which is touted to be the reason for Barca’s decision on him.
