Bartomeu could also include the likes of Yerry Mina or Andre Gomes to sweeten the deal for Mourinho.
Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has labelled Paul Pogba a great player as speculation linking the Manchester United midfielder with a move to the Nou Camp continues to build.
But he has struggled to settle under Jose Mourinho with his displays for France this summer simply highlighting his ineffectiveness for his club last season.
After five seasons without a Premier League title, the pressure is on Manchester United and Jose Mourinho to put up a real fight for the big prize but major questions remain over his team.
Pogba moved to Manchester United in the summer of 2016 for a then-record $121 million, and has been stuck with massive expectations ever since.
In case you didn’t know.. However, the Catalan giants face a massive roadblock in their pursuit, in the form of Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola.
This comes on the back of the souring of Pogba’s relationship with Mourinho.
The midfielder was dropped through-out the season, with Mourinho deciding to hit out at Pogba’s commitment through-out a frustrating campaign.
As a result, Ferdinand – who made over 450 appearance for United – wants Pogba to stay and Spurs defender Toby Alderweireld to come in. I think maybe another signing or two.
Reports in both Spain and England suggest that the Gunners are keen on making a move for Ousmane Dembele with a rumoured €100 million deal in the works, a player who Emery is said to love.
The Old Trafford side have been in a long, hard pursuit of Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld and look set to finalise the signing ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline.
Now, Barcelona have set their eyes on a player they view as apt for their lineup, but the bigger question is whether they can translate this desire into something more.
