Italian super-agent Mino Raiola has revealed Paul Pogba wants to leave the club this summer and the process of finding the Frenchman a new club has begun.
Despite Pogba’s comments, the club’s stance remained that the 26-year-old would be going nowhere this summer, especially after siding with him in his dispute with former United manager José Mourinho. However, most likely due to the frustration of United’s decision, Raiola has gone public, telling the Times: “Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We are in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are. Everyone within the club, from the manager to the owner, knows Paul’s wishes.”
The decision to go public from Raiola will not please fans and many are suggesting the sale of Pogba would be the best thing for the club, given his want-away attitude. Former red Louis Saha said earlier this week: “I am a bit annoyed by that [Pogba going public], but what can you do? I struggle to understand why players express themselves in this way. As much as they want to move, I understand that, but I don’t think it is something that should be done. I am especially gutted because he is a massive player for the club.”
Despite the squad returning for pre-season training on Monday, Pogba is yet to return to Manchester with the BBC stating that he has Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s permission for a few extra days off. He is expected to be amongst the rest of the players on the flight to Australia on Sunday.
