Barcelona and Juventus are reportedly the two frontrunners for the Frenchman's signature, with the Italian champions willing to offer Miralem Pjanic in part-exchange for the World Cup victor.

The offer has been rejected by United, with the player who move to Manchester in a world record £89m deal in the summer of 2016 still viewed as a key figure for the Old Trafford club despite being dropped by manager Jose Mourinho for key games last season.

It seems inconceivable that United would let go of their record signing, and Pogba's camp accept it will be hard to complete a deal before the transfer window closes.

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop explains why Paul Pogba might want out at Manchester United and how Jose Mourinho could factor into his decision.

He still struggled to read which way Anderson was swinging the ball and the pace bowler found the edge of his bat four times. It was nearly an easy-going partnership for the opening duo as they brought up 50 off just 70 balls before the drama began.

His agent, Mino Raiola, is expected in Manchester this week to negotiate the transfer of Pogba out of Old Trafford.

"I think the World Cup is the flawless habitat for a player like him to give the best. Why?"

If the 55-year-old does not last at the 20-time Premier League champions this campaign, perhaps he would consider taking on an global job, something he has not done before. Because it's closed for a month, where he can only think about football. 'Isolated from the external world, isolated from commercial compromises and isolated from every possible influence'.

The French worldwide moved back to United for a fee in the region of £100 million from Juventus amidst interest from Real Madrid, but apparently the 23-year-old was very almost heading to the Nou Camp.

In theory, Barcelona would have until the end of the month to sign Pogba before the transfer window closes in Spain.

And super-agent Mina Raiola has placed an offer on Barcelona's table which the Catalonian club are prepared to settle with.

But it appears United have turned down what seems like a low bid and you can't really blame them.

The deal could hinge on Marcos Rojo leaving United and he has yet to be convinced that a move to Everton is the best option for him.
