Barcelona have taken a decision on the plan to lure Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba to Camp Nou.
The Catalan giants’ president, Josep Bartomeu has seemingly closed the door on a late move for Pogba, insisting the club is “satisfied” with their business in the transfer window so far.
Barca had made moves to sign the Frenchman before the close of the Spanish transfer window, which shuts at the end of the month.
But the Spanish champions won’t be making a last-ditch move for the France international, or any other player for that matter judging from their president’s comments.
Asked about the possibility of adding the former Juventus man or any other player to the squad ahead of the new season, Bartomeu was quoted by Express Sport as saying, “As you all know, the transfer window shuts on August 31 and we’re keeping an eye on the market, but there’s no immediate need to sign anyone.
“We’re satisfied with our business in this window, both with the arrivals and departures, and I want to thank the people who are often forgotten about: our chief executive Oscar Grau, the managing director Pep Segura, our director of football Eric Abidal and his assistant, Ramon Planes.
“We are constructing an excellent squad of players with experience, both homegrown and from elsewhere. This will help us to have success.
“We have brought in young players like [Clement] Lenglet, Arthur and Malcolm, who’ll quickly adapt to the way of playing football here.
“As for Vidal, he is a player with experience, quality and character, who’ll provide balance for the team.
“There are also young players like [Carles] Alena coming into the first team, with others starting to shine too, like [Juan] Miranda, Riqui Puig and Abel Ruiz.
“With the training we give them, I’m sure they’ll reach the first team soon.”
