Paul Pogba could be on his way to Barcelona, as tension between him and Jose Mourinho rises.
Reports of minor disagreements between the gaffer and his record signing started to take shape a couple of weeks ago. Since then, many sources have claimed that the Frenchman’s exit from Old Trafford could be a real possibility.
The Red Devil’s recent form has done nothing to help the midfielder’s case either, as he has constantly failed to perform on the same wavelength as his teammates.
Further, it was Diario Gol who claimed last week that Mourinho has been promised complete backing from the board should players not stay in line with his ideologies.

And with its latest report, the Spanish outlet has claimed that Pogba’s preferred destination is the Nou Camp, and the player has already told his friends about his desire to play with Lionel Messi.
However, the plausibility of such a move materialising almost seems impossible, considering Diario Gol have always been known for far-fetched claims regarding transfers.
Moreover, Real Madrid are believed to be the actual favourites to sign the former Juventus man should he choose to depart from Old Trafford.
Furthermore, the aforementioned claim could also be agenda-driven, as Los Blancos president Florentino Perez does not believe Barca are targeting the French international. The report could, therefore, be a method of pressuring the Galacticos.
But since the 25-year-old’s tiniest moves are orchestrated by agent Mino Raiola, with whom Perez wants to avoid business with, the prospect of such a deal happening looks slender.
