Neville thinks Pogba doesn’t want United stay
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has claimed that Paul Pogba doesn’t want to stay at the Old Trafford. The Frenchman is going through a difficult patch of form and even though the former Red Devils star thinks he is world-class, his agent’s influence may have turned his head around.
“I think he is world class,” former Red Devils defender Neville was quoted as saying.
“I don’t think he wants to be here, that’s his problem. I think his agent’s into him.
He then brought back the time when Pogba was playing well but he had predicted that the Frenchman’s problems would arise again. And it has come true now as Neville believes that his agent Mino Raiola has a lot of influence on the Frenchman.
He also added the fact that the interest from other clubs has also turned his head around and thinks that the former Juventus star no longer wants to stay at the Theatre of Dreams.
“I said two, three months ago when he was brilliant, he’s done brilliantly for Ole, by the way, he’s scored I think 11 goals, seven assists, but I honestly thought a couple of months ago we sat in this studio at the Liverpool game and everything was brilliant about Paul Pogba and I said ‘I believe that it will resurface, the issues will resurface’.
“We know his agent, we know the influence he has on him, we know that Pogba has got his head turned by other clubs and he’s playing like somebody who’s had his head turned.
“He’s playing like somebody who doesn’t quite want to be here.”
