JUST IN: Paul Pogba 'agrees five-year deal with Barcelona'

Transfer news

That was a tempting swap deal but Manchester United made their intentions clear enough to reject the offer. A proposed switch to the Premier League is off though, after German news outlet Bild reported that Boateng is not interested in making the move.

The French global moved back to United for a fee in the region of £100 million from Juventus amidst interest from Real Madrid, but apparently the 23-year-old was very almost heading to the Nou Camp.

West Ham are the latest Premier League club to make a move for Roma's Maxime Gonalons.

With Juventus cooling their interest, Barca were the club that remained keen throughout, as per reports.

The Chilean scored just three times in 18 games as United ended the season without a trophy. Mourinho has taken plenty of heat for not putting Pogba in a position to succeed at Manchester United, and some have even theorized that if things don't change, Woodward will be tasked with picking one or the other.

Polls open for Kansas primary
President Donald Trump's clout and cost both parties millions of dollars in battleground OH was too close to call late Tuesday. Voters in Kansas , Missouri, Michigan and Washington state joined those in OH in Tuesday's voting.

After meeting with Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu, Raiola has been entrusted to present the club's offer to the board at Old Trafford, which is understood to be in the region of 112 million euros (around the same amount that Barcelona were prepared to pay Atlético Madrid for Antoine Griezmann).

Pogba's desire had been to return to Juventus, the side where he was at his best and where he was discussed as being one of the world's best players and most expensive man prior to Neymar's PSG move.

Inter Milan had been hotly tipped to be signing the Belgian midfielder but having hit a snag on the contract negotiations.

Everton and Lyon are also chasing Mina who is expected to leave Barcelona despite only joining in January.

Leicester City are on the verge of signing Dinamo Zagreb defensive star Filip Benkovic for £13m. The club meanwhile are eyeing a possible replacement in Kasper Schmeichel, Pepe Reina, Sergio Rico and Jack Butland. "We will see what happens", he said.

Liverpool FC could make one final attempt to sign France star
Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah says he's happy with the club's transfer business this summer and doesn't believe further additions are needed.

Chelsea have sanctioned a loan move for Matt Miazga to Nantes for a whole season.

The 23-year-old joined the Blues on a five-year deal last summer, moving from Monaco for a fee in the region of £40m.

"It's down to the manager to get the best out of him, setting the team up and setting Pogba up in the right way to achieve the best", said the former England central defender.

- Corriere dello Sport also reveals that Roma aim to rebound from their Malcom snub by pushing for Boca Juniors star Cristian Pavon.
