Pogba must play for title-winning team, says Mino Raiola

Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola says the midfielder’s “heart” is with Manchester United – but he needs to be playing in a side capable of winning trophies.

Pogba, who returned to United from Juventus in 2016, admitted in June that he was considering leaving Old Trafford for a “new challenge”, while Raiola added a month later that he was in the process of finding his client a new club.

But the 26-year-old remained with United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said this month he will not be sold in the January transfer window.

Asked if he and Pogba were happy with the situation, Raiola said: “Paul has always respected Manchester United, as long as Manchester United has respected Paul.

“The only one that talks for Manchester United and Paul is Ole. I go by what he says; he will not move. That’s OK and we are good with them.

“Paul is struggling a little bit with his injury and that’s our main interest now. There’s one objective that Paul has and that is to perform as well as possible with Manchester United.

“He’s a top pro and I think that his heart is in the right place with Manchester United.”
