Paul Pogba’s agent responds to Gary Lineker amid Man United link

Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has responded to Gary Lineker's criticism of the Manchester United target

Paul Pogba’s agent has responded to Gary Lineker’s criticism of the Manchester United target.

The France international has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils since Jose Mourinho’s appointment amid reports that United have made the Juventus midfielder their top summer target.

Pogba has failed to light up Euro 2016 despite his impressive form for the Serie A champions in recent seasons, although France have still managed to progress to the last eight of the tournament.

Lineker was critical of the French midfielder in light of his recent performance in Les Bleus’s 2-1 victory over the Republic of Ireland in their last-16 clash.

However, Pogba’s outspoken agent Mino Raiola hit out at Lineker following the Match of the Day host’s comments on his client.

“When Gary Lineker talks about Pogba, he hasn’t the slightest idea what he’s talking about. I remember he said if Claudio Ranieri won the Premier League title with Leicester City, he’d present his show in his underpants. That tells you everything,” Raiola told Rai Sport as quoted by Football Italia.

Pogba has won four successive Serie A titles since his move to Italian champions Juventus from United in 2012.
