Mino Raiola Defends Paul Pogba, Claims United Knew About His Desire To Leave

Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba's situation at Manchester United is getting more complicated by the day, with the 26-year-old wanting a move out of the team but them reluctant to let him go.

The Red Devils have vowed to hold on to the Frenchman at all costs and their environment has been extremely critic about his attitude and desire to leave the Theatre of Dreams.

However, his agent Mino Raiola claims Pogba has done absolutely nothing wrong and also assured that the team has been aware of his stance over a transfer for several months now, contrary to what they're trying to tell the media right now.

“The player has done nothing wrong. He has been respectful and professional in every way and always. The club has known his feeling for a long time. It is a shame other people only like to criticize without the right information, and I am also sorry that the club does not take any position against this. Hopefully, there will be soon a satisfying solution for all parties," Raiola told TalkSPORT.

Pogba has reportedly grown tired of being one of the team's main scapegoats for their recent slump, and while he built a nice rapport with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he just doesn't want to be with the team anymore.

Moreover, Juventus inquired about the possibility of bringing him back to Turin, where he thrived the most and took a major step forward as one of the best midfielders in the world.

Also, Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane have always been fond of his talents and are quite interested in dressing him in white, but, once again, Manchester United seem reluctant to engage in negotiations regarding the World Cup winner.

Hopefully, this never-ending saga will come to an end pretty soon, as the Red Devils aren't going to be able to convince him to extend his stay at Old Trafford regardless of how much money they offer him.
