For one he is worth much more than Barcelona's initial offer.

Speculation about the midfielder's future is rife, with reports of interest from Barcelona, but Ferdinand has told executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward he must keep hold of the 25-year-old.

Thiago is another World Class midfielder that Manchester United could target and sign this window.
By the second week of July, Raiola had already met with representatives of Barcelona to offer the player to the Catalan club.
It would certainly be a shock for everyone if this happens.
Reports from Spain this evening have said that Pogba wants to leave the club, and the reliable Sky Italy journalist Gianluca di Marzio quickly followed that up with the news that Barcelona have had a bid rejected. Hence, United might consider pondering over this offer.
Pogba's desire had been to return to Juventus, the side where he was at his best and where he was discussed as being one of the world's best players and most expensive man prior to Neymar's PSG move.
Pogba and Mourinho haven't always seen eye to eye at United. Recently, he was one of the protagonists of the French team that won the World Cup in Russian Federation.
Speaking via the Mirror in 2016, Soler said: "Last year we reached a deal with Juventus for us to have a priority option when they sold Pogba".
Chelsea winger Willian, though supposedly happy at Chelsea, has revealed that he's targeting a reunion with former manager Jose Mourinho. This means that Dembele could cost north of £50m if the Red Devils want to bring him to the club but if they cash in on Paul Pogba that fee will not be an issue.
