According to Italian newspaper Tuttosport, the Blaugrana's new director of football Eric Abidal met with his countryman in the US recently.

It has been claimed that the 25-year-old would be interested in a move to Barca, although it would take an enormous fee to lure the player away from United.

Pogba is just one midfielder on the Catalans' list of potential transfer targets, with the club also said to be interested in Paris Saint-Germain's Adrien Rabiot.

Despite the rumours, Abidal has denied secretly meeting with Pogba in the US, with the player telling L'Equipe that the story was fabricated.

However, the initial report came from Barca correspondent Raffaele Riverso, who works as a journalist in Italy.
