Mino Raiola Discusses Paul Pogba’s Man Utd Future Again – And, Shock Horror, There’s Nothing Doing

Super agent Mino Raiola has been stirring the pot surrounding Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United once again – telling Juventus fans to “dream” the France international will return to the club.

Pogba’s long-term future at United has been called into question this season and he’s expected to make a decision at the end of the campaign, with Real Madrid and Juve keeping a close eye on developments at Old Trafford.

But in typical Raiola fashion, Pogba’s infamous agent told Juventus fans to “dream” the midfielder could return to the club, only to contradict himself by stating now isn’t the time to be talking about his future.

Juve fans should dream, because if you do not dream, then you are dead,” Raiola said, quoted by The Daily Mail. “I do not work in dreams, but in the real world, so have to make the right choices for my clients.

“This is not the right moment to say what Paul’s future will be.”

Despite flirting with the prospect of Pogba moving back to Juventus, Raiola’s statement can just be chalked up to another attempt by the 52-year-old to see his name on the back pages – an opportunity that he rarely passes up.

The comments came after Raiola watched AC Milan’s 1-0 win over Brescia on Friday. The Italian-born Dutchman was at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti to keep an eye on another of his high-profile clients, Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The 20-year-old goalkeeper is also a transfer target for Juventus at the end of the season, although Raiola has played down the chances of that move going through at any point in the near future.

If they didn’t like Donnarumma, it would mean they didn’t know anything about football,” he added. “I got threatened and insulted by Milan fans just because I said something was going to happen and then it did.

“Let’s go forward for another two years, I don’t want to create any more controversy.”
