Opinion: Should Manchester United get £100 million deal done after Raiola transfer hint!
Paul Pogba’s Manchester United career is over, as Mino Raiola has revealed his Real Madrid plan for the Frenchman, but should they sell?
The £100 million-rated Frenchman is widely expected to depart Old Trafford this summer after failing to establish himself as one of the clubs most important players since his mega money move from Juventus just a few seasons ago.
And that has led to all sorts of transfer speculation in the media that he could be on his way out of the club at the end of the season, with Real Madrid and Juventus the two clubs who are interested in signing Pogba, and now his agent has hinted that he could finally be leaving the club.
His agent Mino Raiola has hit out at United on more than one occasion and suggested on numerous occasions that this will be the final season for Pogba at United, and Raiola once again admitted the United midfielder is “going through a tough time” as the super-agent revealed his intention to take a “great player” to Real Madrid this summer.
Raiola’s comments fuelled speculation at the time and have continued to punctuate a poor season for Pogba, whose ankle problems have restricted him to just eight appearances in all competitions: “Paul is going through a tough time,” Raiola said, “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.
“He wants to come back into the team and ensure that United can reach the Champions League.”
Asked about Pogba’s future, his agent told Marca: “You can never say what will happen, today we just don’t know. At this moment, the only things that matter are the club and the team.
“Then, after, we can see what is possible; there was great interest in him last year, but it wasn’t possible. We’ll see what happens.”
We have said it before and we will say it again, if Pogba wants to leave the club, then let him leave as he dominates the headlines for United for all the wrong reasons and getting him off the books would be a smart move, no matter how big of a player he is.
Sell him and use the money to buy players that actually want to play for the club. Solskjaer may want to keep him, but that is out of pride and if Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge of the club, Pogba would have got the boot months ago.
