EPL: Manchester United To Lose Top Player Next Summer – Agent Hints

2 min read

English Premier League side, Manchester United may lose one of its top players next summer, agent Mino Raiola said.

Raiola who is an agent to French professional footballer, Paul Pogba, said in an interview that his client is considering a return to Juventus, when his contract expires in June 2022.

Naija News understands that this is coming a few days after it was claimed in a publication that Pogba has been impressed by Manchester United’s recruitment over the summer, and is now interested in signing a contract extension.

However, Raiola is saying that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could lose the 28-year-old player next summer.

Pogba first joined Juventus from United in the 2011/2012 season, Naija News recalls.

After a four year spell in Turin, winning four consecutive Serie A titles, as well as two Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italiana titles, the French star returned to Old Trafford on an £89.3 million deal in 2016.

However, speaking on the new development, Raiola reportedly told Italian TV channel Rai Sport that “Pogba’s contract expires next year.

“We will talk to Manchester (United) and see.

“For sure Turin has remained in his heart and he cares a lot about these things.

“The possibility of returning to Juventus is there but it also depends on Juve.”

Spanish football club, Real Madrid are also among several clubs showing interest in signing Pogba on a pre-contract agreement in January.

Pogba will, however, continue to play for United while talks continue between his representatives and the clubs involved.

Meanwhile, Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has expressed disappointment by the club’s move to sell Antonio Rudiger.

Naija News reports that the German centre-back has been included in the list of players the Blues’ director Marina Granovskaia is ready to sell soon.
