Manchester United and Juventus stars amongst high switch targets for brand new Barcelona president
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba could be one of the top transfer targets for new Barcelona president Joan Laporta this summer.
The France international has improved a bit this season after an ups and downs at Old Trafford and he could now be on his way out of the club if Laporta finds his way.
Although Laporta recently met with Mino Raiola, it is alleged that he did not make Erling Haaland a top priority but instead made his other clients like Pogba and Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt, according to OkDiario.
It will be interesting to see if Man Utd are ready to let Pogba go, but it could be a smart move as they have other talented midfielders like Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek in their squad.
Still, it could also be a risk for a big name like Pogba to go, especially since it’s just beginning to show its true potential with the Red Devils.
However, the 28-year-old could be a good fit for Barcelona and give them a much-needed spark after Ivan Rakitic’s departure last summer and Miralem Pjanic’s lack of real impact in the middle of the park.

De Ligt would also be a great signing for Barca if they could make it, despite envisioning an ambitious team like Juve that won’t let him go that easily.
The Dutch international has long been considered one of the best young central defenders in Europe and could be an ideal long-term replacement for Gerard Pique at Nou Camp.
