Man United given big boost in pursuit of Jose Mourinho’s second signing

Paul Pogba's agent comments on the speculation linking the player with a move to Manchester United

Manchester United have been given a big boost in their reported pursuit of Paul Pogba this summer after the midfielder’s agent revealed that he would be open to a move back to Old Trafford.

Pogba has quickly developed into one of Europe’s top midfielders since leaving Old Trafford back in the summer of 2012 to join Juventus.

The France international was deemed to be surplus to requirements by Sir Alex Ferguson and was allowed to leave the club for just £800,000 four years ago.

Now, Pogba is understood to be attracting interest from a host of Europe’s top clubs as his future at Juventus beyond the summer remains unclear.

And the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, has revealed that he is open to a number of moves to some of Europe’s elite clubs.

Raiola is quoted as saying by Metro: “Will Pogba leave Juventus?

“Paul has to grow. He’s at Juve now, so any transfer must be run past Juventus.

“I’ve said that he likes Zidane, Real Madrid is fascinating as are Barcelona, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Chelsea and also Juve.”
