Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, has already picked Andres Iniesta’s No.8 shirt as he hopes to complete a move to Barcelona this summer.
The Frenchman is interested in playing for Barcelona and specifically replacing Iniesta who left the club at the close of last season.
Barcelona are preparing a late transfer move for the Manchester United star as they look to strengthen their midfield this summer and want to bring in a superstar replacement for Iniesta.
There were reports that Barca sporting director Eric Abidal met with Pogba in Los Angeles last week and discussed a possible move.
Barcelona have been linked with the likes of Miralem Pjanic and Thiago, but Pogba is the man they want to breathe fresh life into their midfield.
Spanish radio station, RAC1 reports that the Catalan giants are prepared to sell Ousmane Dembele this summer in order to fund a move for Pogba.
The former Juventus midfielder’s relationship with United manager, Jose Mourinho is believed to be increasingly strained, while they have fallen out over the club’s tactical approach.
Pogba has also snubbed Mourinho’s call to return from his post-World Cup holiday early.
