Transfer: Manchester United make final decision on Paul Pogba's Barcelona move

The Portuguese coach also suggested that Pogba benefited from the World Cup bubble, where there are fewer distractions compared to the regular season - something else that miffed Pogba. The Catalan club are working on deals to sell Aleix Vidal, Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes and Paco Alcacer to raise the funds to bring in the World Cup victor.

Earlier this week, there was talk of Manchester United looking at Mina. Raiola is known to have approached United about a raise for Pogba after Sanchez moved to Old Trafford from Arsenal in January.

If the 55-year-old does not last at the 20-time Premier League champions this campaign, perhaps he would consider taking on an global job, something he has not done before.

The Red Devils paid a then world-record €105 million to bring him back to the club.

As Pogba's relationship with Jose Mourinho grew increasingly strained last season, Sportsmail revealed in April that the United manager was prepared to sell him this summer.

There have been concerns for some time that Pogba has been distracted by his commitments off the pitch and a growing entourage.

"I don't think it's about us getting the best out of him", Mourinho told ESPN FC.

"I think the World Cup is the flawless habitat for a player like him to give the best. Why?"

'For one month the players are in a closed camp, ' Mourinho explained.

The Daily Mail have revealed that the French World Cup winner's controversial agent Mino Raiola is trying to engineer a deal for his client to join Barcelona.

The 25-year-old was left on the bench for Manchester United's 2-1 aggregate loss to La Liga giants Sevilla in the Champions League round of 16.

In theory, Barcelona would have until the end of the month to sign Pogba before the transfer window closes in Spain.

Barcelona want Pogba to complete their midfield.

But it appears United have turned down what seems like a low bid and you can't really blame them.

Jose Mourinho tells ESPN FC that the World Cup was the ideal habitat for Paul Pogba as he could 'only think about football'.
