The interview in particular the report points to is an interview with ESPN he did two weeks ago wherein Mourinho wonders why Pogba's performances in the World Cup for France were far more impressive than those with Manchester United.

Sky Italy said that Barca offered £45 million plus Colombian defender Yerry Mina and Portuguese defender Andre Gomes in exchange for the French World Cup victor. In fact, as The Mirror now points out, it's been claimed in the Italian press that Barca may not be the only club exploring the possibility of signing the World Cup-winning midfielder.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reported earlier Monday that Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, had travelled to England to negotiate his client's exit, with Barcelona and Juventus preferred destinations.

Things have not come easy for Paul Pogba at Manchester United, and it appears to be taking its toll.

Pogba played a key role in helping France claim their second FIFA World Cup title in Russian Federation last month.

And now it seems United will have to shelve their interest in Bayern Munich defender Boateng, too.

Transfer: Manchester United make final decision on Paul Pogba's Barcelona move
Jose Mourinho tells ESPN FC that the World Cup was the ideal habitat for Paul Pogba as he could 'only think about football '. In theory, Barcelona would have until the end of the month to sign Pogba before the transfer window closes in Spain.

It adds that another of Raiola's clients, Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti is wanted by United.

The Stamford Bridge outfit are ready to sign the 23-year-old after activating his release clause with a £71.6m offer.

United are understood to have rejected the offer, and Ferdinand - who made over 450 appearances for the Premier League side - urged executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to instead focus on signing players.

Thoughts on Barcelona's cash plus players offer for Paul Pogba?

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford have since returned from their World Cup exertions but both are unlikely to be fit enough for 90 minutes against Leicester, possibly leaving Sanchez as the focal point of United's attack.

Pogba, however, had a struggling season which saw him being left out of the starting line-up with Mourinho substituting the Frenchman on many occasions.
