Pogba's agent Mino Raiola had allegedly travelled to Manchester in order to force through a move to the Catalonian club, however United are keen to retain Pogba's services ahead of the forthcoming season, which begins with them hosting Leicester City on Friday night.

Pogba returned to training with Manchester United on Monday after an extended summer break following his exploits in France's World Cup triumph Russian Federation.

Barca director Albert Soler claims a deal for Pogba was agreed 12 months ago that would give them priority to purchase the midfielder for around £85 million.

Sportsmail understands that Pogba has made it known to players and staff in the last 48 hours that he wants to be sold, two years after rejoining United from Juventus in a then world record £89million deal.

All the same, Rashford will be thrilled to pull on the shirt, having had his eye on the number for some time, manager Jose Mourinho explained.

"I think the World Cup is the flawless habitat for a player like him to give [their] best", Mourinho said. Where he's with his team on the training camp, completely isolated from the external world, where they focus just on football, where the dimensions of the game can only motivate.

Speculation about the midfielder's future is rife, with reports of interest from Barcelona, but Ferdinand has told executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward he must keep hold of the 25-year-old. "He's a star", said Pogba.

The Gunners could be joined by Manchester United, who are also tipped to make a late move for the France global.

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand, meanwhile, fears Mourinho's summer sulk will destabilise Manchester United's season.

United's build-up to the new campaign has been dominated by Mourinho's clear frustration over transfers, which has brought his relationship with Woodward into the spotlight.
