Report: Manchester United reject Barcelona's package deal for Pogba


If Barcelona want Paul Pogba, they'll need to reach a lot deeper into their pockets.

The Blaugrana offered €50 million, plus Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes, in a bid to pry the World Cup winner away from Old Trafford, but Manchester United turned that package aside, according to the Guardian's Fabrizio Romano.

The Frenchman, who was outstanding in helping Les Bleus capture the World Cup in Russia, has been one of the hottest names in this summer's transfer market.

Reports of a soured relationship with manager Jose Mourinho have led to rumors of an opulent departure, just two years after he joined the Premier League behemoth from Juventus for a then world-record fee £89 million.

Both Barca and Pogba's former club have been linked with a move, but Romano claims United have no intention of selling the 25-year-old.

Rob Dawson of ESPN FC reported earlier Tuesday that Pogba has indeed become unsettled by his manager's constant criticism, but also noted the Red Devils are not looking to offload the talented midfielder.

Crucially, Dawson added that Pogba isn't pushing for a move, either.

Pogba made 37 appearances in all competitions for United last season, but his marquee performances - such as the brilliant two-goal showing against Manchester City in April - often took a back seat to rumors of a rift with Mourinho.
