France international Paul Pogba could still be a Manchester United player in one year from today provided that the club bolster their squad and match the midfielder’s ambition by competing strongly to win the Premier League and the Champions League, his agent Mino Raiola has stated.
Raiola who claimed in July that he was packaging a move away from Manchester United for Pogba, has told Sky Sports News that his player respects the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s setup as much as the club respect him and is convinces he won’t leave in January.
Solskjaer also recently stated that he still need Pogba and that there is no plan to listen to offers on him in the January transfer window.
“Paul has always respected Manchester United, as long as Manchester United has respected Paul,” Raiola told Sky Sports News
“The only one that talks for Manchester United and Paul is Ole. I go by what he says; he will not move. That’s OK and we are good with them.
“Paul is struggling a little bit with his injury and that’s our main interest now. There’s one objective that Paul has and that is to perform as well as possible with Manchester United.
“He’s a top pro and I think that his heart is in the right place with Manchester United.”
Asked if he could still see Pogba around at Manchester United in a year’s time, Raiola responded in affirmative and explained the condition.
“Yes I can, but in a club that I hope fights for the league and hopefully the Champions League.
“Is that strange? Am I the only one that’s worried? Is the owner not worried? I think that everybody that is in love with Manchester United is worried about that.
“I’m worried about that for my player. I’m not a fan of Manchester United but I have a very direct interest.
Raiola added: “As long as Paul is in Manchester United, he wants to win trophies with Manchester United. That’s the kind of player he is and he will not act differently.
“Like Ole’s saying, it’s a work in progress now this club. He’s says he’s working on a team for next year. Let’s hope that it goes well for him because the world needs Manchester United on the top.
“Clearly they are not where they think they should be.”
“If Ole has ideas about my player and he wants to talk to me about it, he knows my number.
“Until that moment I talk with Ed Woodward because that’s the person that I talk to in the club.
“I only know that Paul respects him and loves him for what he has done in the past with him as one of the player,” Raiola concluded.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
