Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has played down talk of Paul Pogba moving to the Nou Camp in the January transfer window.
The Manchester United midfielder has continued to dominate the headlines for all the wrong reasons this season, with his off-field relationship with manager Jose Mourinho and his on-field performances coming under intense scrutiny and dominating the column inches of virtually every newspaper and football website around.
He was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer, although United rejected the Catalan side’s laughable offer of £40 million plus two squad players, but when asked about their interest being reignited in January, Senor Bartomeu remained coy on his clubs potential dealings.
“I read these rumours – not just Pogba but a lot of players,” he told the Times.
“Most of the teams don’t want to sell their players. They want to grow.
“When you hear from agents that a certain player is on the market – and I am not saying that about this player, but generally – I will sometimes call the CEO and say ‘Is it true you want to sell this player?’. Usually they say ‘No way, not for sale’ and that’s the end of it.”
