Barcelona have reportedly emerged as surprise contenders to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
The Catalan giants are on the lookout for bargains amid their financial difficulties and are lining up January moves for Memphis Depay, Georginio Wijnaldum and Eric Garcia - all of whom are out of contract next summer.
Pogba is also now in the final year of his current deal at Old Trafford, although United do have the option to extend that by a further 12 months.
Should the France international be available on a free transfer, the report claims that both Barcelona and Pogba himself would be open to exploring a deal.
Pogba was limited to only 22 appearances across all competitions last season due to injury.
