Bartomeu told ESPN FC that the Camp Nou outfit had reached an agreement with Juve and Pogba's agent Mino Raiola a year earlier, which meant they could match any offer that the Italian champions accepted.

"In 2015, Pogba was playing for Juventus and we said to them that if they ever chose to sell, we would be interested in him", Bartomeu stated.

"When they told us what United had offered, we simply could not raise that sort of money".

At least, that's how France Football see it this week, as the magazine make a case for Pogba's transfer to Real Madrid and why the former Juventus star "needs" to swap Manchester for Spain's capital.

A deadly drug resistant fungus threatens the world
As of February 28, there were 587 confirmed cases across the country, a lot of them in New York State, where there were 309 cases. This fungus C Auris has also reached other parts of the world like New York, New Jersey and IL , and other regions of Asia.

Paul Pogba answered that it was a "dream" to play for Real Madrid and to work with French legend Zinedine Zidane when quizzed about it during the recently concluded worldwide break, leading to massive speculation that the midfielder was angling for a move away from Manchester United in the summer.

"What I have to recognise is that United, in the last few years, have created a very good group, good players that are coming through".

The 28-year-old has shone once again this season and has been one of the stand-out players in the Premier League, netting 14 goals and providing 12 assists for his team-mates.

In a rallying call to Pogba ahead of the first leg of United's Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona at Old Trafford tomorrow, Phelan said there was "still a lot more to come" from the World Cup victor and wants him to embrace the future at the club.
