Man Utd plan double Barcelona raid to replace Pogba

Manchester United plan to raid Barcelona to replace wantaway midfielder Paul Pogba.

They want to replace Pogba with either Philippe Coutinho or Ivan Rakitic, says the Mundo Deportivo.

Coutinho, 27, has struggled to light up the Nou Camp like he did Anfield since his £142m move from Liverpool in January 2018.

Croatia's World Cup finalist Rakitic, 31, has also emerged as a target.

United have reportedly been given the green light to make a £40m approach for the Barcelona ace by boss Ernesto Valverde.

As a more defensive midfielder, the former Sevilla star could also be used to fill the void left by Ander Herrera.
