The latter, so impressive for Colombia in Russian Federation, is also reported to have been part of a deal offered by Barcelona for World Cup victor Paul Pogba.

Sky Italy said that Barca offered £45 million plus Colombian defender Yerry Mina and Portuguese defender Andre Gomes in exchange for the French World Cup victor.

Despite the 25-year-old's feelings, however, United have no intention of selling the Frenchman, according to one source, just two years after splashing out a then-world-record fee to bring him back to Old Trafford from Juventus.

Links to World Cup star Harry Maguire persist but Leicester's reluctance to sell is clear with the deadline looming large.

However, the report states Pogba is not to the point where he wishes to force a transfer, with three years left on his contract at Manchester United.

That was a tempting swap deal but Manchester United made their intentions clear enough to reject the offer. They have been linked with a move for Grealish for some time, with The Sun now reporting chairman Daniel Levy has finally lodged a bid for the 22-year-old.

I will decide on Arsenal move shortly - Torreira
It is possible that Arsenal also trim their squad with David Ospina, Joel Campbell, Lucas Perez and Danny Welbeck all tipped to leave.

Thiago is another World Class midfielder that Manchester United could target and sign this window.

However, late arrivals remain a possibility, especially after Calum Chambers was allowed to leave for Fulham on a season-long loan yesterday.

Paul Pogba has scored five goals in 23 Premier League matches in the last season.

Manchester United have finally reached an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur for the transfer of Toby Alderweireld, according to the Express.

And Barcelona can delay making a renewed approach for Pogba, following their failed first effort. West Ham are close to completing the signing of Arsenal misfit Lucas Perez, while a £3m deal is close to being agreed for Fiorentina midfielder Carlos Sanchez (Daily Star). United fans could get excited about this signing if they did end up losing their French World Cup victor.
