Mathias Pogba has revealed that his brother Paul Pogba has held discussions with the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Zlatan Ibrahimovic regarding a possible transfer to Camp Nou.
Apart from Real Madrid, Barcelona have also shown interest in the Frenchman and Mathias Pogba has revealed that his brother at Old Trafford has spoken with Lionel Messi.
The summer transfer window was full of speculation that the World Cup winner would move away from the Premier League but deadline day has passed and Pogba still remains a Manchester United player.
But it is worrying signs for United as the midfielder has already revealed his desire to seek a new challenge and future interest is to be shown when the transfer market reopens in January.

Mathias was quoted as saying by El Chiringuito TV:
“I know he’s spoken with a few players, but not Ramos.
“Who? Ah, Messi. Sometimes, not always. Zlatan [Ibrahimovic]. Griezmann, because of the national team.”
Real Madrid were the frontrunners to sign Paul Pogba this transfer window with head coach Zinedine Zidane interested in the opportunity to work with the talismanic Frenchman.
Another of Pogba’s siblings, Florentin, revealed that Barca and Real are the only sides that could tempt the 26-year-old away from Manchester.
He said back in January:
“We like tiki-taka. Whenever I can, I watch their (Barcelona) games or go to the Camp Nou.
“When my brother leaves Manchester United, there are only three clubs he can go to improve: [Manchester] City, Real Madrid or Barca. He’s not going to go to City, so he’ll come to Spain: to Barca or Madrid.”
So it looks like Spain would be the most likely destination for Paul Pogba if he decides to switch clubs in January.
