The notorious agent says that Paul Pogba wants to leave Manchester United and the club has known the player’s wishes for quite some time.

With Paul Pogba looking more and more likely to leave Manchester United in the summer, the only thing that’s left to wonder is where he would be heading. The France international is attracting interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus.

Zinedine Zidane is a huge admirer of the midfielder and wants to build a team around him at the Santiago Bernebeu. Juventus meanwhile, are equally keen on bringing Paul Pogba back to Turin. And the player’s agent has been working on a smooth exit from Old Trafford in recent weeks.

While there were fears that Paul Pogba will not show up for preseason training and the tour to Australia, the midfielder showed up. It has been believed that Pogba was advised by Real Madrid to not skip out on training since they did not want to damage their relations with the English giants.

While speaking to talkSPORT, Mino Raiola says that his client has been very respectful and has done nothing wrong. He also revealed that Manchester United knew for a long time that he wanted to leave.

“The player [Pogba] has done nothing wrong,” Raiola told talkSPORT.

“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 criticise 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.”

This definitely puts United in a very uncomfortable situation since the club hasn’t been able to find a suitable replacement even though Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been linked with a move.
