Back in 2016, Manchester United broke their transfer record to bring Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford from Juventus.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the French international could end up returning to the Old Lady as soon as next month.
Yesterday, super agent Minao Raoila confirmed that his representative’s time is up with the Red Devils. He told Italian outlet Tutto Sport (via The Athletic):
“I can say that it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United.”
On the other hand, another Italian agent in the form of Ivan Reggiani claimed that the 27-year-old midfielder might move back to Turin in a deal worth £45million+ to play for the Bianconeri. He told Calcio Mercato:
“Even his teammates in England think that Pogba can return to Italy, to Juventus. Operation well underway, around €50m plus some important bonuses,”
“With the right mindset, he can really make a difference in a team like Juventus. He is an extraordinary player, in a role in which Pirlo’s team is struggling. Pogba was not happy in England, he started to throw a tantrum. It was a bad marriage from the beginning, there were serious problems. January or June? I think this operation is already ready for January, if Juventus wants to aim for the Champions League they must necessarily strengthen itself in the winter transfer market session.”
Pogba has world class talent but unfortunately, that talent has not been on display at Old Trafford on consistent basis. He performed well week in week out at Juventus, moreover, he was a key member of the Les Bleus squad that lifted the World Cup in Russia two years ago.
However, for Manchester United, the versatile midfielder has been highly inconsistent. Last season, he was mostly out with an ankle injury and this season, Solskjaer has opted to keep him on the bench more often than not.
The timing of Raiola’s comments is absolutely ridiculous as tonight, United will face Leipzig in one of the most important games of the season and. This would really infuriate the supporters.
Have your say – Should Man United get rid of Paul Pogba in the next month’s transfer window?
