Barcelona have stepped up their pursuit of Manchester City target Paul Pogba, claim reports in Spain.
The Juventus midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to the Spanish giants in recent months but a transfer ban prevented the Catalans from making a concrete bid in the summer.
However, according to Mundo Deportivo, Barca’s sporting director Ariedo Braida is currently in Italy and will attend Juve’s Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach tomorrow to meet with director general Giuseppe Marotta.
Juve are keen to keep hold of the French international and talkSPORT told you on Monday that the Serie A club rejected bids from Chelsea and City in the summer.
However, the Old Lady may not be able to compete with the lucrative salary and transfer fee Barcelona are prepared to offer.
Barcelona’s transfer ban ends in January 2016 but no deal for Pogba is expected to be agreed until next summer.
