Barcelona president Bartomeu: Pogba? The market still has 20 days to go...

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has left the door open to signing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this month.

After winning the Supercopa on Sunday in Morocco, Bartomeu refused to shut down talk of a move for the France World Cup winner.

Asked directly about Pogba at the final whistle, the president said: "I never speak of names, I have respect for other clubs, the market still has 20 days left in the window, we will see which players can come and go.

"On Wednesday we play the Gamper, on the weekend the league. .. The players theme should be asked to (Eric) Abidal, (Ramon) Planes or Pep Segura."

Bartomeu also said: "We're very happy, it was a summer where we prepared the team, starting with a title gives joy and desire to continue competing, the league starts soon, Sevilla has been a good rival, they are more fit and it has been a match where either of us could win, I'm happy for the team and for (Ernesto) Valverde."
