“Someone gets offended” – Mino Raiola says he can’t speak about Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba’s outspoken agent, Mino Raiola, has once again made comments that will make the headlines.

The comments are brought to us this evening from reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, who regularly features on Sky Italia and The Guardian with updates on the latest football transfers.

Raiola was present at a Serie A meeting on Thursday afternoon when he was quizzed about a potential return to Italy for his client.

“Paul Pogba to Juventus? I can’t speak about Pogba because people are nervous, they don’t sleep at night. I have to work quietly… If I speak, someone gets offended,” Raiola said.

I can only wonder who that is a dig at…

But with Pogba’s current contract at United ending next year we can expect speculation to be rife as to whether he will extend his contract or push for a move.

Raiola is stirring the pot and he’s never been afraid to do that. All he cares about now is Pogba’s next deal.

Pogba will miss United’s next match away to West Brom in the Premier League due to injury. For that reason alone, Pogba shouldn’t be the focus over the coming days.

I hope the journalists at Friday’s press conference don’t waste their time asking Solskjaer about Raiola’s comments. The Italian agent is such a bore and I really wouldn’t be surprised if the club told him to zip it.

    Shame Raiola didn’t have the same stance before the Leipzig game. Really don’t care what this guy has to say anymore, it’s a simple situation now, if Pogba doesn’t sign a new contract we have to sell this summer or he leaves for nothing in 2022 and can agree a precontract next Jan. Not an ideal situation for a club hoping to be back challenging for silverware.

  2. Jonathan Bianco says:

    Its obvious, to Riola football is just a business and with his statement understands nothing of the fans passion, and tbf it’s the fans that have made him and his clients rich. People like him should be kept away from this beautiful game.

    Pogba should have been sold 3 years ago, he is one of the highest paid players in World football, For what ? his social media profiles lol And ole is a useless manager we need gone too. Will we ever get a manager with 10% of fergusons ability, the last 4 are on zero as for ole spending more than any other club in World football and still win nothing says enough about him.
