Barca Boss: Pogba Is Great, But...

FC Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has admitted he is a big admirer of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba amid reports linking the 2018 FIFA World Cup star with a move to the Blaugrana.

Pogba's Agent Wants Him To Join Spanish Giants

Reports coming out of Spain suggest that the Catalan giants are looking at the possibility of signing the 25-year-old superstar, who has reportedly become disillusioned with life under Jose Mourinho.

In a recent press conference, Valverde made it clear he does not like to talk about other teams' players, but labelled the Frenchman a "great player". 

"Paul Pogba is a great player, but we respect those who are at other clubs," the former Athletic Bilbao boss said, as quoted by Football Espana.

"I do not really have any comments to make on the rumours that are circulating around – they are just rumours.

"There are a lot of names that always get circulated around in the rumour mill – all of them are good players, and we respect them themselves, but we also respect the clubs they are currently at."

Six Players Who Could Leave Man Utd

Pogba, who played a vital role in France's 2018 FIFA World Cup-winning campaign, made 37 appearances for the Old Trafford club last season, scoring six goals and assisting a further 12 strikes.
