Agent confirms Man United star wants to leave Old Trafford
Mino Raiola opens up about Paul Pogba's situation at Man United following the speculation about his future
Mino Raiola has confirmed that Paul Pogba wants to leave Old Trafford this summer.
The midfielder’s situation has been a source of speculation in recent weeks after the 26-year-old admitted that he may be keen on a move away from Old Trafford in an interview.
Manchester United finished sixth to miss out on Champions League qualification for next season and it has been suggested that Pogba would be keen on a move to a club who can offer football in Europe’s elite club competition.
Now, Pogba’s agent Raiola has spoken out about the French World Cup winner’s situation at Old Trafford now that the summer transfer window is in full swing.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Sky Sports, Raiola said: “Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We are in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are.”
Raiola added: “Everyone within the club, from the manager to the owner, knows Paul’s wishes.”
When asked if Pogba would travel with the United squad for a pre-season tour of Australia on Sunday, Raiola said: “I cannot tell you anything. I live day by day.”
Pogba scored 13 goals and made nine assists in 35 Premier League games for Manchester United last season as they finished sixth in the table and without a trophy.
The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
Pogba re-joined Manchester United from Juventus back in 2016, when Jose Mourinho was in charge at Old Trafford.
