Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola explains when Man Utd ace’s future will be sorted

Manchester United star Paul Pogba will wait until after this summer’s Euros before making a decision on his future.

That’s according to the Frenchman’s agent Mino Raiola with Pogba having been regularly linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

Former club Juventus and Spanish giants Real Madrid are both believed to be interested in the World Cup winning midfielder, who is currently sidelined with an ankle injury.

Pogba has struggled since returning to United from Juventus in 2016 and admitted he wanted a new challenge last summer.

He stayed at Old Trafford but the 26-year-old’s season has been ravaged by numerous injuries.

And Raiola has now confirmed that Pogba will have to wait until the conclusion of Euro 2020 before deciding his future, admitting a return to Juventus is an attractive prospect.

"Italy is like home for Paul,” Raiola said.

“He would not mind going back to Juve but we will see what will happen after the Euros.

"Paul wants to play at the best level but he can't escape by Manchester United if they are in a difficult situation."

“I think he probably feels a little bit let down by what’s gone on at United, it’s a mess on both sides.

“When he signed he was supposed to be the start of a rebuild — the glory days returning. The club have not delivered on their promises, so it’s not the deal he signed up for.

“Pogba has had injuries but United have never seen the best of the midfielder, either.”
