Reports: Paul Pogba's medical for Manchester United cancelled by agent Mino Raiola
The 23-year-old's move back to Manchester United is being held up.
Multiple reports from Spain have been breaking news that Mino Raiola – agent of Paul Pogba – has cancelled the Manchester United medical for the Frenchman. Spanish news giant AS reported that Dr Italo Linfante – who is currently holidaying in Europe – of the Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute was to conduct Pogba's medical but has told to stay put and not head Stateside given how United are still 'in talks' with Juventus over a few issues in the Pogba transfer.
The 23-year-old is ridiculously close to signing for Manchester United in a deal that would break every transfer record in the world. Jose Mourinho, Ed Woodward and the United hierarchy are willing to pay an astonishing €120 million for the Frenchman – who left the very same club four years ago on a free.
Mino Raiola – who has already negotiated two deals with Manchester United in Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – is reportedly unhappy with how the club are haggling over a few details in the Pogba case thus putting the medical on hold.
The Italian agent was seen – along with Pogba – in a pool in Miami yesterday. The two of them share a close relationship and with Raiola flying to the States, a decision was soon expected.
Various reports have also emerged this week that Juventus are demanding a further €10 million in the Pogba deal – presumably to pay off Raiola who is reportedly asking the two clubs for a massive €25 million amount for initiating and seeing through the transfer.
Paul Pogba is one of the world's most wanted footballers having impressed with Juventus in the Serie A over the past four seasons as well as with France in the UEFA European Championships earlier this summer – where his team reached the finals but lost to Portugal.
