Pogba agent rows back on transfer claims

Paul Pogba’s agent has rowed back on comments he made last week claiming that his client was unhappy and wanted to leave Manchester United in January.

Mino Raiola’s remarks on the eve of United’s game against RB Leipzig in the Champions League caused outrage on social media, with ex-players and media pundits lining-up to condemn the pair, and some demanding that United cease all future dealings with Raiola.

Pogba himself expressed his commitment to the team at the weekend before the Manchester derby, although he stopped short of saying that he wanted to stay at the club.

Now Raiola has clarified his already position and says that he was talking about next summer, and not the forthcoming transfer window.

In reality, it is an acknowledgement that January will see fewer deals done than usual. Most clubs do not have the funds to spend on large transfers because of the continued effects of the global pandemic, and not at the level required to buy a player like Pogba.
