Barcelona board count on Pogba, Raiola to kick up fuss at Man Utd

Barcelona's board has not shelved their pursuit of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Mundo Deportivo says Barca will push United to sell the World Cup winner right up to the August 31 transfer deadline.

Barca had an offer of Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes, plus €50m cash, for Pogba rejected by United on Monday. The two players mentioned have since signed for Everton.

Barca recognise United will be reluctant to sell given they're unable to sign a replacement with the Premier League market now shut.

But the Catalans will count on Pogba and his agent, Mino Raiola, kicking up a fuss at their end so to force United's hand.

Intermediaries have informed Barca that United would be willing to do business for €110m.
