Mino Raiola is difficult to follow. The Dutch super-agent, representative of Paul Pogba, has been blowing hot and cold for several months over the future of the Manchester United midfielder and the Blues. Latest statement to date, to appear this Tuesday in the columns of Tuttosport, Italian daily. “There is no point in beating around the bush,” he confides to the transalpine media, in a teaser broadcast this Monday evening. Better to speak clearly, look ahead […] Paul is unhappy at Manchester United […] He must change teams, he must change tune. “
The one who also represents the interests of Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Blaise Matuidi adds that Pogba “is at the end of the contract in June 2022” and that “the best solution for both parties” is a sale during the “next transfer window”. Otherwise, “Manchester United would risk losing him to zero since, for now, he has no intention of extending his contract. “
In August, however, we were going to “talk about a new contract” …
Statements far from harmless as Pogba, scorer this weekend, took the direction of Leipzig on Monday evening with the Red Devils to play a decisive match for the qualification in the knockout stages of the Champions League (Martial and Cavani are absent).
Except that the remarks clash with those … of Mino Raiola pronounced on this same subject in August. “Paul is a key Manchester United player. […] We will soon be talking about a new contract, ”he slipped to Sky Sport Italia. As for the previous year? The situation seemed irreversible … “Today, I will not take anyone there,” said the agent about Manchester. The leaders would be able to ruin Maradona, Pelé or Maldini. Paul needs a team and a club like Juventus ”. As you will have understood, the file therefore remains sensitive.
For his part, Pogba, apart from a classic “every player dreams of playing for Real Madrid”, has never expressed any desire to leave in public. “For the moment, I am in Manchester and I am thinking above all of returning to the best of my form,” he announced in early October, questioned about his future. “He’s our player and he will stay here for two more years,” said Mancunian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Still, the new release of the representative of Pogba opens the way to all rumors. Among the clubs able to accommodate the world champion: Juventus Turin, Real Madrid or PSG are names regularly cited.
