Mino Raiola hints Paul Pogba could leave Manchester United this summer
In a report covered by The Mail, Raiola said that Pogba has been committed to United despite the fact that the club have failed to compete with some of the elite teams. He added that his client wants to play at the highest level and hinted that he could leave the Red Devils when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
He told: “He never lost his smile, but clearly a great player doesn't go to Manchester United only to not challenge for the Champions League or the Premier League title. It would be bull for me not to admit Paul wants to stay at the highest level. But Pogba will first and foremost try to give his best and then we'll see at the end of the season if he ought to remain or not.”
Pogba has endured a tough season marred with ankle injury concerns and he is currently on the sidelines after a surgery to sort out the concern. The France international is not expected to return to action until the second week of March at the least and he could yet play a key role in the club’s quest for Champions League football next season.
Even then, the midfielder may consider a fresh challenge away from the Red Devils, particularly with Real Madrid and former club Juventus prepared to lodge summer bids. United have apparently reduced Pogba’s valuation from £148m to £83m following an injury-plagued campaign where he has made just seven appearances in the Premier League.
