FC Barcelona President Refuses To Rule Out Paul Pogba Move

Manchester United's Paul Pogba gestures during the game against Leicester City at Old Trafford

"We thought maximum [he would play] 60 minutes, but he managed more than 80.

There is still time to do business", he said.

"What do you mean being the real Pogba?" he asked.

And after a brief conversation with Sanchez, Pogba placed the ball on the spot and stepped up to bury the spot kick into the roof of the net to put Manchester United 1-0 up. I don't think there is a book called "How to be a Leader".

"There are things, and there are things that I can not say, otherwise I will get fined", Pogba said.

Pogba excelled for France at Russian Federation 2018. "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

On the other hand Pogba appeared modest speaking on his future.

Barca can sign the 25-year-old before the end of the month when their transfer window closes, however, United will not be able to sign a replacement.

Pogba has been heavily linked with a move to the La Liga champions this summer following several bust-ups with the Red Devils manager, Jose Mourinho last season.

Pogba was skipper for United's victory over Leicester City on Friday night. Mourinho showed the faith that he has in his midfielder by handing him the captain's armband against the Foxes and he took on the responsibility in fine fashion.

"All the way throughout pre-season it's been negative, negative, negative", he said. [Antonio] Valencia is captain, but Valencia is not here.

"The decision belonged to him because Andreas Pereira comes from Valencia bench as a winger to play number six".

"It is better you ask about the topic of players to [Barca technical director Eric] Abidal, [assistant technical director Ramon] Planes or [sporting manager] Pep Segura".

"Nothing has really changed with Man United with the way Mourinho set his team up".

The Brazilian's performance was somewhat erratic and he clearly needs time to adjust to the power and pace of the Premier League, but he will certainly add much needed dynamism and energy to the Red Devils' engine room.
