Barcelona has made a â‚¬70 million bid for the French midfielder, Paul Pogba.
Pogba has made his name at Juventus and in Serie A as a talented young midfielder. After showcasing his skills as a powerhouse in the middle, Pogba has caught the attention of La Liga big name club, Barcelona.
Pogba was released from Manchester United on a free transfer to Juve and now the Frenchman is probably one of the most expensive player in the sport.
Barcelona’s â‚¬70 million (Â£50 million) bid was rejected by Pogba despite the inclusion of a clause that would see him “loaned back for a year, until June 2016″, per Sport:

Even though Pogba seems very happy at Juve, further reports indicated that the Frenchman would be making his exit come summer.
According to Football Italia, rumors has been circulating that Juventus has been in deals with Paris Saint-Germain’s, Edinson Cavani, and the only thing that could prevent this deal is the failure to sell Pogba. Il Quotidiano Sportivo also stated that an unnamed Juve director sent a text stating:
“Weâ€™ve signed Cavani, it’s all done, it’ll only fall through if we don’t sell Pogba.”
With the value of Pogba it will be difficult to sell the French midfielder for his real worth. Chelsea, United, City and Real Madrid are all vying for the young star this summer which could result in a world-record transfer fee.
