Barcelona forward, Luis Suarez says France midfielder, Paul Pogba will always be welcome at the Spanish club. However, he also criticised Antoine Griezmann’s style of rejecting Barcelona in the 2018 summer transfer window.
Paul Pogba was linked highly with a move to Barcelona in the 2018 summer transfer window.
In the 2018 summer transfer window, Pogba was linked highly with Barcelona. But in the end, he stayed at Manchester United, as Jose Mourinho didn’t want to let the midfielder go.
However, Pogba’s linking to Barcelona doesn’t end so soon. And Suarez has said the doors are always open for Pogba at Camp Nou. Suarez told RAC1,
“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.”
Things started to get tougher for Paul Pogba at United after his relationship with Mourinho took a turn.
After the manager criticised the Frenchman in the summer, it was known that Pogba wanted to leave right after that.
Meanwhile, praising Paul Pogba, the former Liverpool striker revealed he was shocked after he heard Griezmann is not joining Barcelona.
“It was a surprise [that he stayed at Atletico] because of what he had said. But you have to respect his decision, which he made with his family. He earned everyone’s respect. There were some people saying I would leave if he came in, but I don’t know where that came from. If he came, he would have been well received because he’s an excellent player.”
According to the reports, Griezmann was all set to join the La Liga champions. But in the end, he decided to remain at Atletico Madrid, finally announcing his decision in a documentary called “The Decision.”
