Barcelona’s approach for one of the world’s best midfielders, who is also a Real Madrid target, has been approved by Lionel Messi.

Barcelona’s signing of Frenkie de Jong may mean that Ivan Rakitic might ask for a transfer despite his playing time not being affected too much, in all probability. Meanwhile, the Catalans are also considering his sale whilst his stock as well as age is high and replacing him with a younger player, thanks to slightly subpar performances of late.

The former Sevilla midfielder is on the radar of Inter Milan while a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain or Juventus could be on the cards as well. That said, his Catalan side is already bracing for his departure and looking for a fill-in. According to Diario GOL, Paul Pogba of Manchester United is the chosen man at Lionel Messi’s consent.

Eric Abidal, the Spanish champions’ sporting director believes that his common nationality with Paul Pogba can be used as bait in persuading the Manchester United midfielder to move to Catalonia. The Red Devils’ failure in qualifying to the Champions League means that the France international may consider his options once the transfer window opens.

Paul Pogba has been on Barcelona’s shopping list since a considerable amount of time. The links were strongest last summer when Ernesto Valverde’s side was looking at a replacement for the departed Andres Iniesta, however, they did settle for Arthur Melo in the end, who has been absolutely world class in all fairness.

With that said, the Blaugrana now face a task of luring Paul Pogba away from the advances offered by Real Madrid. Zinedine Zidane has already hinted at the World Cup winner’s arrivals, and his connections with other Madrid targets such as N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard could favour the Whites in a race that they could end up winning.
