Mino Raiola: Zlatan Ibrahimovic told me he’d break my legs over Paul Pogba deal

by Abhishek Chaudhuri

Super Agent Mino Raiola has revealed Zlatan Ibrahimovic threatened to break his legs if Paul Pogba did not join Manchester United.

Raiola, who represents both superstars, brokered a move for them both to join Old Trafford this summer.

While Ibrahimovic hit the ground running, scoring on his debut, Pogba had a shaky start to the season and has just found his first goal against Leicester City.

Speaking of the world record transfer, Raiola revealed his phone call with Ibrahimovic.

“Don’t transfer Pogba elsewhere or I’ll break your legs,” Zlatan told Raiola.

“Pogba still has to find his place in the team. My preferred position for him is left attacking midfielder,” Raiola added.

“With his power, stamina and technique… Pogba would be unplayable in that role. But Mourinho takes the decisions.”

He enjoyed a remarkable career at Juventus, but got off to a slow start at Old Trafford, with many questioning his ability as the world’s most expensive player.

But after showing flashes of his brilliance, he took charge of United’s clash against Leicester and found his first goal since his transfer.

With Pogba finding his feet at Man United, fans are confident heading into a busy schedule of fixtures.
