Manchester United: Pogba’s agent gives huge hint regarding star’s future


The Manchester United midfielder’s agent has given a huge hint regarding the star’s future and addressed rumours about a potential departure.

Controversial ‘super-agent’ Mino Raiola has once again stoked the flames regarding Paul Pogba‘s Manchester United future, seemingly suggesting that a move back to former club Juventus could be on the cards.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Raiola stated that “Italy is like a second home” to Pogba, and that “You cannot be happy if you are not competing for the title or the Champions League.”

Such comments will surely irk both the Manchester United hierarchy, and, more importantly, a fanbase that has become exasperated with the constant transfer speculation that engulfs their biggest, and arguably, most talented player.

It was only last summer that Pogba himself admitted it may be time for a new challenge. Rumours of a ‘secret meeting’ with Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane (a known admirer of his French compatriot) surfaced, and there were rumblings within the club that it was in United’s best interests to cut their losses, and reinvest the hefty transfer fee they would receive back in to Solskjaer’s rebuild project. Fast forward to February, and due to an ongoing ankle injury, Pogba has only played a handful of games this term, his last start coming in a Carabao Cup win over Rochdale back in September.

The nature of said ankle injury has only served to intensify gossip of a departure from Old Trafford. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer initially exclaimed to the media that the injury wasn’t as serious as first feared, and that the dynamic midfielder should make a return in a matter of weeks, rather than months. Five months on, and Pogba is still rehabbing, with seemingly no return date in sight.

This summer will be as intriguing as it is pivotal for a club that, once at the pinnacle of world football, has suffered a shocking and quite unthinkable decline in recent years. It may now be time, and the best for both parties, if Pogba takes his talent elsewhere in Europe, and United continue their rebuild process without their most prized asset.
