The Manchester United and France midfielder is thought to be upset with his manager's assessment of his performances during the World Cup.

The France World Cup victor has been linked with a move to the Nou Camp amid speculation over his future at Old Trafford. According to Italian news outlet Calciomercato, French midfielder Paul Pogba's agent has met up with Barcelona chiefs and negotiated on a deal to lure the United star to Camp Nou.

United can still receive offers for players after Thursday, but will not be able to pursue targets to replace Pogba.

Pogba made 37 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United last season.

Reports have emerged in recent days that super-agent Mino Raiola has been touting his client around.

Pogba has yet to return to pre-season after his World Cup exploits in Russian Federation, despite the fact United kick off their Premier League season on Friday.

But Manchester United are confident they will be keeping Pogba as Mourinho looks for his side to close the gap on Premier League champions Manchester City.

The ban follows the removal of a handful of videos from those pages which also landed Jones in a 30-day timeout from Facebook. It also said they represent various views if "people are respectful to those with differing opinions".

Back in 2016, the 25-year-old completed his move back to Old Trafford for a-then world record fee, but things could have been very different according to one of Barcelona's directors.

Pogba is a great player who is on another team.

"I think the World Cup is the ideal habitat for a player like him to give [their] best", Mourinho said.

"Why? Because it's closed for a month, where he can only think about football".

Pogba has been linked with the Catalan giants throughout the summer and it was reported yesterday that United had turned down a cash-plus-players bid for the France worldwide.

In theory, Barcelona would have until the end of the month to sign Pogba before the transfer window closes in Spain. "It's about him giving the best he has to give".
