Barcelona are interested in Pogba

The Catalan Barcelona have conducted preliminary negotiations with the French halfback Paul Pogba, according to the newspaper Tuttosport. Blaugranas’ sporting director Eric Abidal participated in the conversation with the Manchester United player.

According to the newspaper, Abidal was in Los Angeles, where he spent his last vacation days. Pogba, who was in the camp with his team, met with his countryman at Abidal’s private villa, where they discussed the issue of the player’s move. It is presumed that because of the contacts with the French players Eric got his job at Camp Nou.

Before the final of the World Cup, Barcelona representatives talked to Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola about the transfer of his client to Iberia. Therefore, a serious interest of the Catalan club to halfback is present. We should figure out, should the acting champions of Spain buy Pogba.

The Frenchman had a steady and quality streak at the World Cup, having achieved a victory in the final against Croatia. Together with Kante and Mathuidi, Pogba was the backbone, who cemented the midfield of Didier Deschamps team and started the team’s attacks, which was alien for him throughout the last two years in the club football. The motivation of international level benefited the midfielder, but ill it remain for the upcoming season is a rhetorical question, the answer to which only time will tell.

Barcelona bought the Brazilian halfback Arthur to the midfield, who by his tasks performs the job of Xavi. Busquets is an undisputed figure of the first squad. Coutinho is capable of playing in the midfield and also on a wing. Rakitic was also efficient in the World Cup and proved that he will be useful for Barcelona. And Denis Suarez and Sergi Roberto remain as the substitutes in the Catalans. Therefore there is no need in Pogba.

Finally, Valverde should think about the situation in the team, which will be considering the Frenchman’s transfer. Messi will have a competitor in the category “the King of Barcelona” and the confclicts will not be avoided, considering Pogba’s attitude and image.
