Juventus have agreed a swap deal with Manchester United, involving midfielders, Paul Pogba and Miralem Pjanic.

The Frenchman has often been criticized for his subpar performances at Old Trafford, but in recent months, much of the criticism from fans and media has switched to Mourinho, especially in the wake of Pogba's stellar performance in France's World Cup winning effort.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reported earlier Monday that Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, had travelled to England to negotiate his client's exit, with Barcelona and Juventus preferred destinations.

According to the Daily Mail, the Portuguese Football Association is considering a move for Mourinho, whose future at United could be in the balance, to take over the national team's hot seat.

Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this whole season and has publicly stated his admiration for the La Liga champions Barcelona.

The relationship between the French midfielder and his coach at Manchester United, Jose Mourinho, isn't good and he's ready to leave the English club for the second time in his career.

Paul Pogba has been linked with a move to Barcelona - but who could replace him at Man Utd?

"There are a lot of names that always get circulated around in the rumour mill - all of them are good players and we respect them themselves but we also respect the clubs they are now at".

Jose Mourinho tells ESPN FC that the World Cup was the ideal habitat for Paul Pogba as he could 'only think about football'. 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.

Pogba has been linked with the Catalan giants throughout the summer and it was reported yesterday that United had turned down a cash-plus-players bid for the France global.
