Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has revealed that the France international midfielder hasn’t joined United because he was yet to make up his mind about whether he will move back to Manchester United or not amidst reports that Manchester United are ready to break the world record to re-sign their former youth player.
The fans of the Red Devils now have to be patient about the former United stars potential move back to Manchester, as Raiola declared that his client could choose to remain at Serie A champions Juventus next term.
Mino Raiola, who is also the agent of Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, assisted Manchester United to secure the signing of both stars earlier this summer was quoted by Mirirror as saying;
“Juve do not want to sell him and there is a chance for us to talk about a new contract. He feels no need to leave. But if you come with a project that will make Paul want to leave, we’ll talk with the club,”
The French man helped the Turin club win their fifth consecutive Serie A title last term, but had a rather disappointing outing representing his nation and host country France in the recently concluded European championship.
Mino Raiola also revealed that current Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho tried to sign the Juventus ace while at the helm of affairs at Chelsea but the London club failed to match Juventus valuation of their most priced asset. Which is an indication that Mourinho actually likes Pogba and could be giving everything in his arsenal to ensure the Frenchman plays in Manchester United’s colours next season.
It’s widely thought that should Jose fail in his attempt to sign Pogba, he could be tempted to move for former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas from former club Chelsea, should new Italian boss Antonio Conte decide to offload the Spain international midfielder.
