Pogba has emerged as Zinedine Zidane’s no.1 target this summer, with the La Liga club optimistic that a deal will be done before the new season begins.
With Madrid enduring a miserable preseason so far, Zidane is more determined to land his compatriot from United.
Should the move happen, Man United will then try to sign Rakitic.
Barcelona placed the Croatian midfielder price value at 45 million and are looking to reduce their squad size.
It is believed this week could prove decisive, with a transfer merry-go-round set to be put into motion if Pogba leaves.
