According to the latest rumors, United is interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who is viewed as the ideal alternative for Pogba.

The Independent reports, through The Metro, that new manager Xavi hasn't been impressed by the midfielder in his initial training sessions since taking over at the club.

Barcelona's financial woes have been publicly reported, and De Jong's exit would relieve some of the strain on the Catalan club's already bloated salary bill.

Paul Pogba's contract at Manchester United expires in less than a year, and an extension appears increasingly doubtful, prompting speculation about who would replace him.

Federico Valverde of Real Madrid has been linked with a move to Manchester United, while Declan Rice remains a goal for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
