Mino Raiola seems to still be trying to push Manchester United striker Paul Pogba towards Real Madrid. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer previously warned Raiola that Pogba belonged to Manchester United but the message seems to have landed on deaf ears.
Pogba’s agent went on to claim that his client was having a tough time at the club as he said:
“Paul is going through a tough time. However, let’s be clear because in England they are very sensitive, Pogba is only focusing on bringing a great end to the season with Manchester United”
It seems that an unspoken feud is going on between Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Raiola, with both men trying to decide on the fate of Paul Pogba.
The Frenchman himself has not directly said he was looking to leave the club, instead stating that he was happy where he was.
Having been injured throughout most of the season, Pogba only managed to make 8 appearances to date for the Red Devils.
He was on track to make a permanent return to the squad just as the Premier League was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Frenchman’s contract with United expires in 2021 but with his lack of game time as well as how prone he has been to injury this season, it is highly unlikely that a lot of top-flight clubs will be rushing to sign him at the end of the season, especially seeing as that the Coronavirus is going to leave a huge hole in the pockets of many clubs after the suspension of football competitions across Europe.
Nevertheless, Mino Raiola seems very confident he can get Real Madrid to take on his client.
“I definitely want to take a great player to Real Madrid, and I will try to do so this summer,” said Mino, going on to add
“It would be a source of pride for me and my players because Real Madrid are a great club.”
“My relationship with Los Blancos is very good. I am in contact with Jose Angel (Sanchez) and I love discussing football with him.”
