Barca eyes on Juventus star Pogba

Barcelona are looking to sign coveted midfielder Paul Pogba once their FIFA-imposed transfer embargo has been lifted next year, Juventus director Pavel Nedved believes.

According to Nedved, the Spanish giants are keen to acquire the France international, who has been a big hit since arriving at Juve from Manchester United in 2012.

The 22-year-old is tied to the Turin giants until June 2019. "We know that Barca and other big clubs want him," Nedved said. "But Pogba has a contract with us."

Barca cannot acquire any players until 2016 after the Catalan club was punished for breaching rules regarding the signing of international players under the age of 18.

Pogba has been strongly linked with a move to Paris St Germain this summer while former club United as well as neighbours Manchester City and Premier League leaders Chelsea are also reported to be interested in signing the midfielder.

The Frenchman sustained a hamstring injury last month and was ruled out of action until May.
