In an interview with Tuttosport, Mino Raiola is reported to have said: “I can say that it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United.”
The French midfielder rejoined United in 2016 but has struggled to make an impact at the club.
Will Paul Pogba Stay at Manchester United?
Mino Raiola Has a History
Paul Pogba’s agent tends to give these types of interviews about his client.
For example, in an interview with TalkSport in February 2020, the agent of Paul Pogba said this about his future: “he is only committed to Manchester United until after the European Championship. The only focus there is to get back as soon as possible into the team to help the team, and to make a good end of the season for Manchester United.”
These comments seem to echo what he has said in the reported Tuttosport interview. However, the full interview has not yet been released.
Even if the comments are true, it’s hard to say if Manchester United would even miss Pogba. He only scored one goal and laid on three assists last season.
These are hardly the numbers of a world-class player.
A Move Might Be the Right Thing for Paul Pogba
While Pogba has struggled for United, yet he has been a leader for France. The midfielder was a key part of France’s World Cup win.
In the final against Croatia, the Frenchman stared. He completed 30 of his 35 passes and was a defensive wall in front of the backline with four tackles and seven ball recoveries.
He also created the decisive fourth goal for teammate Kylian Mbappe.
His form for France proves just how good of a player Pogba really is. And if he gets the right move, then he could kick on in his career. At 27, he’s entering into the final phase of his peak; he can’t risk wasting more of it at Manchester United.
