Friday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Paul Pogba, Nicolo Barella, David Brooks

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Friday, November 6.

A frustrating summer transfer window has now closed with Manchester United having missed out on a number of their top targets, including Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils were busy on deadline day, though, bringing in Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri, in addition to agreeing a deal to sign Amad Traore in January. Attention will now switch to other business they may do when the window reopens in the winter.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Friday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'would sell Paul Pogba for £54m next summer'

Manchester United would reportedly be prepared to sell Paul Pogba during next summer's transfer window if they receive an offer in the region of €60m (£54m).

The France international was strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford earlier this year, but the coronavirus outbreak meant that neither Real Madrid nor Juventus could afford to sign him in the recent market.

Pogba's contract with United has been extended until June 2022, but there remains speculation surrounding his future, while the midfielder's performances this season have largely been disappointing.

According to Calciomercato, the 2018 World Cup winner is determined to link up with Zinedine Zidane at Madrid during next summer's transfer window, and the 20-time English champions would be prepared to accept offers in the region of €60m (£54m).

Pogba recently revealed that he 'dreams' of representing the Spanish giants, although a return to Juve is also thought to be a possibility, with the Italian club's boss Andrea Pirlo allegedly keen to sign the midfielder.

The 27-year-old has only managed one goal and two assists in 10 appearances for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side this season and has found himself out of the starting lineup in recent weeks.

Barcelona, Manchester United 'interested in Nicolo Barella'

Barcelona and Manchester United are reportedly among a number of clubs interested in signing Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella.

The 23-year-old spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan with Inter from Cagliari before completing a permanent move to San Siro during the recent transfer window.

Barella has been in impressive form for Antonio Conte's side this season, contributing four assists in nine appearances in all competitions.

The Italy international has a contract with Inter until June 2024, but according to FCInterNews, Barca and United are both weighing up offers for the central midfielder.

The report claims that Conte's team are attempting to extend Barella's contract for a further year, but a number of teams in England and Spain, including Arsenal and Liverpool, are closely monitoring developments.

The Italian has scored four times and registered 12 assists in 50 outings for I Nerazzurri.
