Paul Pogba’s agent says midfielder could leave Juventus this summer

by Ben Topliss

Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has admitted the midfielder could leave Juventus this summer amid reports Manchester United are interested in him.

The Frenchman left Man United two and a half years ago and has since gone on to become one of the world’s best players. United fans still lament the fact Pogba was allowed to leave for free.

United have been repeatedly linked with a move to bring Pogba back to the club and Raiola believes he will leave if the right offer comes in.

Speaking about his client’s future, Raiola said: “He [Pogba] wants to make his mark on football history and he is already doing that. Not a single player at the age of 21 has shown the world what he can do: lead a team in the palm of his hand.

“Pogba, he has done it already. His future? He could join any team. If the right time comes this summer, then it will happen.

“If it is not the right time, he could stay for another year or two. He will beat the transfer record. If there is one Mona Lisa in the world, and she is for sale, it will be a record price.”

Pogba has suggested the final straw for him at Old Trafford was watching Rafael and Park ji Sung play in midfield ahead of him in a 2011 clash against Blackburn.

He understandably left United due to his increasingly limited first team opportunities but Raiola is renowned for transferring his players around for financial gain so a transfer back to United is not out of the question.

If a move did go through it would delight United fans who have had to deal with the pain of watching Pogba do so well for another club.
