“We Refused To Sign Pogba” – Barcelona Reveals Reason

Barcelona have claimed they refused to sign Paul Pogba, who joined Manchester United in a world-record£89million move, despite having first option on the player. Naijaloaded.com.ng can confirm.  
The club’s director of sporting relations, Albert Soler, stated:  
“Last year we reached a deal with Juventus for us to have a priority option when they sold Pogba.  

“This summer we decided that there were players that suited us better on a sporting level.  

“The idea of the board was that nobody would be able to get ahead of us in the market.  
“It allowed us to have options.”
