Barcelona reportedly enter the race to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, who is out of contract next summer and has been heavily linked with Real Madrid.

Barcelona have reportedly emerged as surprise contenders to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

The 27-year-old has long been linked with a switch to Barca's bitter rivals Real Madrid and last week admitted that it would be a "dream" to play for Los Blancos.

Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have also been credited with an interest in Pogba, but Mundo Deportivo reports that Barcelona have now also joined the race.

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.
