Barcelona Close To Sealing The Transfer Of The Summer?

Barcelona representatives will reportedly fly to Turin on Wednesday.

Reports in Spain suggest that Barcelona representatives Ariedo Braida and Albert Soler will fly to Turin on Wednesday to complete a deal for Juventus star Paul Pogba, according to Football Italia. Pogba has been the talk of the summer so far with basically all of the world's best clubs heavily linked with the France international. Now, according to those rumours coming from Spain, Luis Enrique's side are front-runners for the former Man Utd player's much sought-after signature. Since leaving United as a teenager, Pogba has quickly turned himself into one of the world's best midfield players. The 22-year-old Frenchman has been with the Old Lady since July 2012, and he's got better with every season, to the point where his value has soared massively. He has made 129 appearances for the Serie A champions, netting 24 times in the process. Talks have been going on all summer about the midfielder's next destination, and now it looks as though the La Liga giants have put themselves in the driving seat to secure his services. Barcelona are going to have to spend big in the summer to retain their La Liga title, and the mammoth deal for Pogba will go a long way in helping Enrique's side do so.
