Former Barcelona consultant Braida recently accepted an interview with Marca newspaper. He said that he had actively recommended Pogba and Harland to Barcelona, but Barcelona had no interest in signing.
Braida said: "This is not a lie. I went to Milan with Albert Soler (Barça sports director) and met with Juventus management there. But despite the negotiations, Barcelona There is no real intention to sign with Pogba. Pogba finally stayed at Juventus that summer. I told Barcelona that Pogba is a very good player, and I have a personal relationship with Albert Soler. Very good, but at work, we cannot work together on transfer matters because Barcelona does not give me such authority."
布雷达说：“这不是骗人的。我与阿尔伯特·索勒（Alber Soler）（巴萨体育总监）一起去了米兰，并在那与尤文图斯的管理层会面。但是，尽管进行了谈判，巴塞罗那仍无意与波格巴签约。波格巴最终留在了尤文图斯那年夏天，我告诉巴塞罗那，波格巴是一位非常出色的球员，而且我与阿尔伯特·索勒（Albert Soler）有个人关系。很好，但是在工作中，我们无法在转会事宜上共同努力，因为巴塞罗那没有授予我这种权力。
"Barca did not give me the responsibility for (signing), but let other people take charge of this work. I was also studying players at the time. I recommended some names, such as Harland, who was still playing in Salzburg. The ball. But the club rejected my suggestion. They think that the characteristics of Haaland do not conform to the football philosophy of Barcelona."
"I also recommended some Italian players, such as Barrera and Zaniolo. But at the time I couldn't do anything about signings. I was put aside and others were in charge of transfer negotiations."
