Barcelona have been heavily linked with the France international but the Blaugrana supremo has suggested that his coach has other targets in mind
Two of the men trying to dethrone Bartomeu in next week’s election, Augusto Benedito and Joan Laporta, have repeatedly spoken of their hopes of bringing the France international to Catalunya should they claim the top job at Camp Nou.
However, Bartomeu is far less interested in any possible deal for the Juventus midfielder, suggesting that the coaching team have more important transfer targets.
“Pogba is not a priority for Luis Enrique but you cannot rule out for the future,” he told reporters on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Bartomeu admitted that the relegation of Barcelona’s B team to Segunda B must prompt a rethink on the club’s handling of its most promising young players.
“I think Barca B’s demotion was an error of planning and that we are doing something wrong,” he added.
“Sometimes we put the best young players in the team too early.
“The most important thing about La Masia [Barca’s youth academy] is that our players are allowed to continue with their learning process.”
