Raiola: Pogba staying at Manchester United, contract negotiations coming

0 Comments

What it must be like to be Mino Raiola.

The representative of Paul Pogba says the French midfielder will stay at Manchester United for next season, about seven months after tearing into current Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in an unprovoked rant.

A public January word war between Solskjaer and Raiola ended with the latter saying, “I think that Solskjaer has other things to worry about. At least if I was him I would.”

A report earlier this month said United and Raiola will begin new contract discussions, and now Raiola’s more or less confirmed it.

Super agent shoulder shrug emoji. From The Express:

“Pogba is staying at Manchester United and I think they are trying to extend his contract. We’ll discuss that soon, no stress. Manchester United have a project and he is 100 percent a part of that. They won’t accept any offer for Pogba this summer.”

Do you think Raiola will have to make eye contact with Solskjaer at any point in the future? Could that be pay-per-view?

Jokes aside, the super agent has represented plenty of former and current Manchester United players including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Jesse Lingard, Romelu Lukaku, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, so Solskjaer and the United hierarchy know his personality.

Plus Raiola will know that managers are changed relatively often…
