The super agent says his client wants to leave Old Trafford and has flagged a possible meeting in Turin
Paul Pogba may return to Serie A champions Juventus as he is unhappy with Manchester United, according to his agent Mino Raiola.
Pogba’s manager, Raiola, said the star midfielder’s time at United has “ended” in Monday’s advance for an interview with Tuttosport amid speculation that he is ready to leave Old Trafford in the near future.
The World Cup-winning French international, who scored in Saturday’s 3-1 Premier League win over West Ham, has been regularly linked with former Juve club and LaLiga champion Real Madrid. , while Pogba described a possible transfer to the Santiago Bernabéu as a “dream”.
Pogba left United for Juve from Serie A in 2012 after his contract expired only to rejoin the Red Devils in 2016 for what was then a world record transfer fee of £ 89 million.
On the cover of Tuesday’s Tuttosport, where the full interview will be published, Raiola is quoted as saying: “Yes, Paul Pogba can return to Juventus.
“He is not happy at Manchester United.”
Raiola’s comments come as United gear up for Tuesday’s successful Champions League clash at RB Leipzig on the sixth and final matchday of Group H.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United need a draw to reserve their place in the round of 16 of Europe’s top club competition.
“Paul is unhappy with Manchester United because he can no longer express himself in the way he would like and as expected,” Raiola said. “Paul needs a new team, a change of scene.
“He has a contract for the next 18 months and will expire in the summer of 2022.”
Expert Jamie Carragher was asked on Sky Sports for his opinion on how United should respond, saying: “Get rid of it. I’ve been saying this for 12 months.
“OMG, he’s the most overrated player I’ve ever seen.”
Carragher feels that Pogba would have been well aware of what Raiola was planning to say and did not hold back with his opinions.
“I think they are both a shame,” he said. “We will all look at the agent now and say ‘ask Pogba what he thinks.’
Pogba has made 13 appearances for United in all competitions this season, scoring two goals.
The 27-year-old scored his first Premier League goal of the campaign as United came back to beat West Ham at London Stadium.
