The Spanish giants were desperate to sign Pogba with their captain Gerard Pique even publicly appealing for the midfielder to sign.

It's Castles' understanding that Andre Gomes, the 25-year-old Portuguese midfielder, and 24-year-old centre-back Yerry Mina were the two players offered.

"Castles told the Transfer Window podcast:"We've talked at length about the problems between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho since last season, since things started to fall apart between them.

"The best offer that was proposed was Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes in exchange for Paul Pogba by Barcelona, which Manchester United understandably laughed out of court."

Castles broke the news that Mourinho labelled Pogba a 'virus' in front of his United team-mates last week - the latest in a series of bust-ups between the pair this season.

"We have gone through a season where Mourinho has handed Pogba the captaincy, put him on penalty duties, set up the system around him, talked positively about him in the press even though Pogba was doing post-match interviews talking about his unhappiness at Manchester United and most famously saying the team should 'attack, attack, attack' which was part of Jose stripping him of the captaincy," Castles explained.

"There seemed to be a reconciliation in that Pogba had a series of good performances for the team. He was pivotal in some of their comebacks that they've had this season but the performances dropped off in the last three games."
