99% Sure: Agent gives update on Chelsea and Manchester United target


Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is ’99 per cent’ sure that his client will reject a possible move to the Premier League to stay at Juventus. The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Chelsea while several European heavyweights including Real Madrid and Paris St’ Germain are also interested in the 21 year old.

However Raiola was quoted saying, (as reported by Daily Mail relaying Tuttosport), “We made a pact with Juve: Paul doesn’t have to leave. I spoke to president Andrea Agnelli, directors Pavel Nedved, Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici, so they all agree. The club doesn’t need the money.”

Raiola however had earlier said that Pogba will leave Juventus however the recent developments state otherwise. In fact he had also mentioned that any potential suitor will need to pay €100m for his client’s signature

Raiola continued, “At this moment the situation at Juve is ideal for Pogba. We would only leave if a situation emerged that was favourable for all concerned. He is wanted by seven clubs and that is certain, because they all told me so. The ones that can afford him are Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.”

“If I just whistled, I’d sell Pogba tomorrow to PSG or City in a heartbeat. But Paul did not tell me to find him another club. What are his chances of staying? As of today it’s 99 per cent. Juve agree with our approach, which is that they will only sell if Paul asks to leave and there’s a suitable offer. Of course, it could become one per cent, it depends on the market.”
