United reject Barcelona's complex part-ex deal for Pogba

Pogba shone for France in the World Cup as the 25-year-old re-established himself as one of the world's best midfielders after a frustrating season for United. Barca offered £45million plus defender Yerry Mina and midfielder Andre Gomes for the World Cup winning playmaker, but the Red Devils turned it down.

United are simply not interested in selling Pogba.

United have taken a stern stance in talks, insisting the World Cup victor is not for sale.

The fractured nature of Pogba's relationship with Mourinho will give Barcelona hope that a deal can be struck.

This summer, meanwhile, Willian has been closely linked with a move away from Chelsea, with both Mourinho's Manchester United and Barcelona mooted as possible destinations.

Pogba is "disillusioned" with life in Manchester after a season of being at odds wiht his manager, Jose Mourinho.

However, United could rekindle their hopes of signing World Cup star Harry Maguire, with Leicester closing in on two centre-backs late in the window to safeguard themselves against losing their England worldwide.

The Mirror runs a story saying there are signs that Leicester City are preparing to let Harry Maguire leave the club amid interest from Manchester United.

Should United eventually accept an offer, Pogba would earn €100m (£100m) over five years at the Nou Camp.

Even after the signing of Brazilian Malcolm and Chile's Arturo Vidal, Barcelona signaled they would continue to seek reinforcements in the market, and this time it is Frenchman Paul Pogba, now at Manchester United. Manchester United scoffed at it.

The Mail reports that Pogba has sent United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward a message to inform him of his decision.

Old Trafford is set for a busy week.
