During the final days of the summer transfer window, multiple sports outlets claimed Paul Pogba's agent; Mini Raiola is trying to make a move to Camp Nou for the player.

It seems that Paul Pogba is frustrated with Mourinho's defensive tactics for two seasons and now, he wants to play more attacking football. On the other hand, the Spanish giants are still going strong to persuade the French international to Spain from England.

Paul Pogba, the World Cup winner, along with N'Golo Kante drove the French midfield with sheer grit and determination in France's World Cup-winning campaign. In the finals, France trumped Croatia 4-2 to win the World Cup. Paul Pogba scored a magnificent goal in finals and performed consistently throughout the World Cup 2018.

Paul Pogba believes that his footballing career has gone down after he joined Manchester United in 2016. However, luring Paul Pogba from Old Trafford would cost any club a minimum fee of £100 million.

On the other hand, Manchester United are willing to sell the player if any European clubs offer a fee around a fee of £150 million. Pogba's relationship with Mourinho is growing more unfavourable and it is likely that Manchester United would be interested in offloading Pogba.

Here are top three options for the Portuguese manager and Old Trafford based outfit whom they can swap Paul Pogba with
