Paul Pogba, the young French national can be considered as one of the best midfielders over the last few years. His meteoric rise has continued after his departure from Old Trafford as he seems destined for greater things in the near future.
The Juventus number ten was a key figure in their 2014-15 campaign where they won the Serie A league title and reached the finals of the UEFA Champions League. His impressive displays saw him linked to a host of clubs.
But Barcelona's transfer embargo jolted any potential move they could make. Luis Enrique's side were banned from registering new players and although they bought Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal, neither could make their debut until last month.

Juventus were also already depleted after the departures of Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal and the 22-year-old has successfully took over the reins - helping his team to second place after a rather tough start to their league campaign.
His recent performances has directly affected his market value which is showing no signs of slowing down. Although Barcelona do have the resources to capture him, yet a deal looks highly unlikely at this stage.

The main reason is their current midfield is already very strong. They have Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic at their disposal while Arda Turan has also added fuel to their midfield after their transfer ban ended last month.
Moreover, the young Sergi Roberto is showing a lot of promise. His energetic displays all around the pitch have been widely acknowledged by the club's supporters and Rafinha is another youngster who had caught the eye before injury curtailed his journey.
The addition of Pogba would no doubt enhance the depth of an already strong midfield but would significantly hamper the development of the club's young prospects.
A player of his calibre would surely not come for cheap. This money can be successfully utilised to develop their youth program as Barcelona has always been known for producing world class players.
Yaya Toure is the last player Barcelona had who plays in a similar style to Pogba and was a regular until Pep Guardiola became manager and preferred to use Busquets.
It would be wise for Pogba to spend a few more years at Juventus. After gaining considerably more experience, he could then be in a better position to make a switch to the Catalan giants when he can actually command and control their midfield like he is doing at Juventus now.
