Barcelona are prepared to embark on a ‘Philippe Coutinho style’ campaign to eventually prise Paul Pogba away from Manchester United, if they cannot sign the French World Cup star in this window.
The Spanish champions will continue what is a hardening pursuit of the 25-year-old to try and get him this August, but with Manchester United definitively refusing to sell the player and just a day of the Premier League purchase window left, Barca are looking to the medium term.
They may well employ a similar strategy to securing Coutinho, after he did not go to Camp Nou from Liverpool last summer, but did eventually move in January.
Barcelona have been made well aware of Pogba's issues with manager Jose Mourinho, which have got to the point where he would be open to a move. The problems began earlier this year when the midfielder was dropped for the Champions League match away to Sevilla, with that rumbling on for months, and being opened up again with Mourinho's critical comments just after what should have been the positive of a World Cup win with France.
