Manchester United are now trying to fend off interest from Barcelona in midfield star Paul Pogba - and, unfortunately for the Red Devils, the transfer saga could continue long past Thursday.

They included Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes in the deal, bringing his valuation to over £100m. However, neither were Juventus two years ago when a return to Old Trafford was engineered.

Paul Pogba has told his Manchester United teammates he wants to leave and has come to an agreement with Barcelona over a £350,000-a-week deal, according to the Mail.

Having won the World Cup this summer, Pogba is said to have become increasingly frustrated with Mourinho's attempts to play down the achievement.

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.

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop explains why Paul Pogba might want out at Manchester United and how Jose Mourinho could factor into his decision. The Hornets have bid £10m for the 23-year-old.

An impressive showing at the World Cup under Didier Deschamps raised more debate over his United form too.

Mourinho is keen to bolster United's attacking options ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline, with Inter Milan's Croatia star Ivan Perisic also reportedly a target.

Pjanic joined Juve in the same summer that Pogba returned to United. West Ham are close to completing the signing of Arsenal misfit Lucas Perez, while a £3m deal is close to being agreed for Fiorentina midfielder Carlos Sanchez (Daily Star).

Bakayoko moved to Stamford Bridge from Monaco last summer for £40m and started 25 Premier League games in his first season in the Premier League.

The club has had to deny the claim that Pogba sent a text message to Woodward demanding he be allowed to leave.
