Barca have also seen their initial £50million bid rejected by the Serie A winners, while City are said to have set aside £71million in order to complete the deal.

However, the two Premier League sides have the upper hand as Pogba will be not be able to join Barcelona until their transfer embargo is lifted in January of 2016.
