After weeks of speculation, Paul Pogba’s agent has now provided an update on the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner’s immediate future at Manchester United ahead of the January transfer window.
Pogba was one of the biggest stories in the previous transfer window, especially after the player admitted it might be time for a new challenge.
Real Madrid was reportedly keen to make a move for the Frenchman in the off-season, but nothing materialised as United did not want to part ways with their club-record signing.
However, agent Mino Raiola has now confirmed that the France international will be staying with the Red Devils for the time being.
“Paul has always respected Manchester United just as Manchester United has also always respected Paul,” Raiola told Sky Sports.
“And the only one that talks for Manchester United and for Paul is Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer, United manager) because he comments in the paper and in the press.
“I go by what he (Solskjaer) says. He (Pogba) will not move, and that’s OK. We are good with them.
“Paul is a little bit struggling with his injury that we tried to resolve and I think that’s our main interest now.
“So if Ole has ideas about my player and he wants to talk to me about it, he knows my number. And until that moment I talk with (United CEO) Ed Woodward because that’s the person that I talk to at the club. I never spoke with Ole.
“So I don’t know. I only know that Paul respects him, loves him for what he has done in the past with him.
“And that’s it, that’s the only thing I know about Ole.”
