Barcelona stars Messi, Pique support move for Man Utd ace Pogba

Barcelona players want to see Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba join them.

The Daily Mail says Pogba is friends with international team-mates Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele but it also understood that influential voices such as Gerard Pique and Lionel Messi believe the club would benefit from the presence and power that the French World Cup winner could provide.

Manager Ernesto Valverde is also keen on the deal but Barcelona scouts are split on the midfielder, with some believing that the club's tika-taka model requires midfield players who take less risks on the ball and have greater positional sense.

The dominant view was that the team now require greater brawn to accompany the panache that has for so long defined their philosophy.
