Mino Raiola adds fresh fuel to Pogba fire
Mino Raiola has reignited the speculations surrounding Pogba future after fresh comments following the Juventus-Milan Coppa Italia match.
Pogba’s departure from Old Trafford is a story that will not easily fade away. These speculations are largely in part to the player’s agent, Mino Raiola.
“It may be time for a new challenge” were comments from last summer. To his agent, Raiola, he says, “the club (United) knows he wants to leave.”
Pogba and his agent have done everything they can to agitate a transfer. Moreover, his family has got in on the debate too.
The French World Cup winner has been out of action for the majority of the season and has made only a handful of appearances for Manchester United.
Pogba is currently recovering from an ankle injury and it remains to be seen when he will return in action. It has been a few weeks since the rumor of his departure. So it’s about time for Raiola to stir things up again.
Following Juventus’ 1-1 draw with AC Milan in the first leg of Coppa Italia semi-final, Raiola was asked of Pogba’s future.
The response he gave will no doubt infuriate Manchester United. He said, “Italy is like home for Paul. He would not mind going back to Juve. But we will see what will happen after the Euros.”
“The question was is he happy. You cannot be happy if you are not competing for the title or the Champions Leauge.”
“Paul wants to play at the best level but he can’t escape Manchester United if they are in a difficult situation.”
It appears that Raiola and Pogba have a plan this summer and the player’s exit is inevitable. But should United wait until 2020?
Pogba’s stock may rise to their valuation or he may bum out. Worse still he may end up injured and United end up stuck with a wantaway player even longer.
