Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has refused to rule out a departure for the Manchester United midfielder and has criticised the club for not meeting the player's expectations since his arrival in 2016.
In an interview with Sky Sports, he said, "I don't say anything for sure. Today he is not happy because he is not playing. He is recovering. Paul if he does not play he is not happy. I saw him go back to Manchester United when people did not think he would go back. People tend to imagine that Manchester United was the only club that he could have signed for. He chose Manchester United. Everybody knows the ambition from both parts is not being met in the last years. Let's be honest, let's talk about the elephant in the room. So we need to see in the summer if Paul is still in the plans of Manchester United and if Manchester United is still in the plans of Paul."
