At the end of August, we relayed news from Spain that talked about Barcelona’s transfer plan for 2019 and the targets include Paul Pogba, Adrien Rabiot and Frenkie de Jong.
It was also claimed that two out of these three players could join the La Liga winners next year after the latter failed to sign either of them in the summer transfer window.
Friday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo has a story about the three aforementioned players, and according to the Catalan newspaper, the Camp Nou outfit’s general manager Pep Segura, technical secretary Eric Abidal and the latter’s assistant Ramon Planes have watched these targets in action during the midweek Champions League fixtures.
The midfielders are three main objectives of the Blaugrana and the leaders of the club ‘spied’ on them, including Pogba in action for Manchester United against Young Boys, but they are aware that they cannot sign all three. It’s for this reason they want to let go of one of the options that could be difficult or seems impossible.
Manchester United sealed a 3-0 win over Young Boys and Pogba scored twice and registered an assist in Switzerland.
Mundo claims Pogba he was ‘spied’ on by Barcelona chiefs and his display in the European competition showcased the enormous confidence of the former Juventus star.
