Mino Raiola, the Frenchman’s agent hasn’t ruled out a Serie A return for Paul Pogba.
Paul Pogba’s current contract with the English club, Manchester United is due to expire in less than 18 months and the Red Devils are looking to cash in on the midfielder before he is available to leave the club for free.
He was rediscovering his form recently but after getting injured in the 3-3 draw against Everton on the weekend, it seems like he will be out of action for quite a few weeks.
The news isn’t problematic for United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjær as he has found various alternatives in the midfield to fill up the playmaker’s role. Bruno Fernandes, the Portuguese talent has anyway replaced Pogba as the club’s talismanic figure. That being said, it’s only safe to assume that United is ready to offload the World cup winner in exchange for the right price.

Pogba must also be left alone. When I speak people get nervous, he doesn’t sleep at night, so I don’t speak anymore. I will do what I have to do not in front of you, but in the shadows, as I always have.”
The 53-year-old agent was heavily criticized for his comments on Paul Pogba’s situation before United’s Champions League group stage decider against RB Leipzig at the start of December. The Italian stated to Tuttosport,
I can say that it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United. Paul is unhappy with Man United as he is no longer able to express himself in the way that he would like and as he is expected to. Paul needs a new team, a change of air.”
A month later, Raiola retraced his own steps as he told reporters at the annual Golden boy awards: “When it comes to him in England, they are sensitive, perhaps too sensitive. In January the great players hardly move, then in the summer let’s see what happens.
Pogba will have a great future.”
The player himself has never been open to discussion about his future and neither has he addressed the statements his agent made. According to him, he has a year of service left at Manchester United and all he focusing on is winning and giving his best.
