Barcelona star Luis Suarez has followed the lead of team-mate Gerard Pique in saying Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba would be a welcome addition at the Camp Nou.
Before the transfer window closed, Pique said “We would be happy to have him” at Barcelona, per the Daily Mail‘s Chris Wheeler.
Suarez echoed that sentiment when he spoke to RAC1 (h/t MailOnline’s James Dutton) on Tuesday: “Pogba’s an elite player who’s won everything. He has a lot of quality and he’s one of the references at United. I think he would like to be competing for more than he is at the moment.
He’s not a player that belongs to Barca, but he would always be welcome.” Pogba was linked with a move to the Blaugrana over the summer.
He’s said to be receptive to the idea of signing for them, and his agent Mino Raiola has reportedly been in contact with the club.
The Frenchman looks set for another year with United, given it’s highly unlikely they would part with him in January, but it seems Barca are laying the welcome mat with a charm offensive ahead of a potential arrival next summer.
