Top football agent Mino Raiola has claimed ‘it is over’ for Paul Pogba at Manchester United.
Pogba has long been linked with an exit from Old Trafford and his agent has now declared his United career is coming to an end.
Raiola made this known on the eve of United’s crunch Champions League clash with RB Leizpig on Tuesday night.
He is reported as saying to Tuttosport: “I can say it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United.”
Pogba’s future at United has been the subject of much speculation over the past few years.
The Frenchman is tied to United until 2022, after an option to extend his contract by one year was triggered by the club last month.
However, Pogba has never seemed fully committed to United and has publicly courted interest from Real Madrid.
Back in July 2019, Raiola urged the club to let him go and said that Pogba had been nothing but respectful in his attempts to leave the club.
Earlier this year, the agent was especially critical of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for comments he made about the player ‘being owned’ by Man United.
In an explosive interview with talkSPORT, Raiola said: “Ole said he is owned by Manchester United and I have a principal problem with that; he is an employee, he is not owned by Manchester United. And being employee doesn’t mean I cannot have an opinion or say something I want to say.
“I have never spoken about Ole in the papers or the press, he always speaks about me. Whether it is about [Erling] Haaland, or Pogba’s injury, or Pogba’s surgery, he is always talking about me – I’m not talking about him.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
