Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has failed to rule out a shock swoop for Manchester United star Paul Pogba.
The midfielder, a World Cup winner with France, has been the subject of speculation in recent days concerning both a possible transfer to Barcelona and his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.
He was handed the captain’s armband against the Foxes and set United on their way to a 2-1 victory with an early penalty – but appeared to allude to off-field issues in a post on his social media accounts after the game.
However, Bartomeu has failed to rule out a late move for the Frenchman.
“We’re focused on the league, so it’s best to ask [Eric] Abidal, [Ramon] Planes or Pep Segura about players. There’s still time to do business.”
Pogba said after Friday night’s win: “I have always loved the club.
“I have played for the Academy, I have played for the first team and it was a dream come true.
“And now it is even more of a dream come true, wearing this armband, because of the past: the players who have played here and those who have been wearing this.
“For me, when I have this I have the confidence of the fans, they all help me. My team-mates also and I want to give them love and good performances on the pitch.”
