Lionel Messi approved Barcelona’s move for Paul Pogba.

Barca, on Monday, had an offer of €50m cash plus Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes for Pogba rejected by United. However, the Catalans remain locked in negotiations for Pogba, with the Frenchman’s agent Mino Raiola in Manchester and working to prise his client away from Old Trafford. United are prepared to sell – but are insisting on a straight cash deal of €110m for the midfielder. Barca are continuing negotiations today on approval of Messi, who has assured directors that the locker room would welcome the World Cup winner if a deal can be done this month.
