Agents offer Man Utd pair Van de Beek, Pogba to Barcelona

Manchester United pair Donny van de Beek and Paul Pogba have been offered to Barcelona.

After being trumped by PSG for former Liverpool star Gini Wijnaldum, Barca remain in the market for a midfield signing.

Mundo Deportivo says agents for Van de Beek have offered the Holland international to Barca as an alternative solution. Mino Raiola's camp have done the same on Pogba's behalf.

Barca's finances mean a move for Pogba is out of reach, however there remains interest in Van de Beek.

But any chance of bringing Van de Beek to the Nou Camp will be dependent on Barca selling a raft of players first in the coming weeks.

At the Nou Camp, Van de Beek would be reunited with former Ajax teammates Sergino Dest and Frenkie de Jong. The trio helped Ajax reach the Champions League semifinals two years ago.

With United last season, Van de Beek managed 36 appearances, scoring once. He has a contract with the Premier League giants to 2025.
