Mino Raiola has declared December “the month of dreams” for Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba in a hint over the player’s future.
The ‘super agent’ has made numerous controversial comments surrounding Pogba’s time at Old Trafford with Raiola highly critical of the Red Devils.
In March, he even went as far as saying he doesn’t “give a f*ck” if he never takes another player to Man Utd ever again.
Pogba is out of contract at the end of the season and with no apparent breakthrough in talks – with rumours the France international wants to be made the highest-paid player in the Premier League – it looks likely he will leave on a free.
Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have been linked and now Raiola has suggested that he cannot stop Pogba’s will to leave Man Utd in the summer.
Raiola Italian channel Rai (via the Daily Mail): “December is the month of dreams… and I can’t stop dreams, but it is better to not speak about Paul.
“If some former Man United players don’t speak about me and Paul, they won’t work anymore.
“It’s too early to speak about Paul Pogba’s contract. Let’s see what happens. I can’t stop anyone from dreaming Paul.”
Meanwhile, former Liverpool winger Steve McManaman has suggested that Pogba could rediscover his best form if he moved to Real Madrid.
McManaman told Horseracing.net: “It’s an easy move for Real Madrid to take him. You’re getting him on a free so you’re really not taking much of a gamble.
“So you take into account what you have in the team -they’ve got Luka Modric who’s 36, Toni Kroos is into his thirties, Casemiro will be 30 in February. That’s what you’re looking at. Of course you’ve got a number of players in and around the squad as well. I don’t think it would be a big issue to bring Pogba in.
“Is he playing well enough at the moment? No, of course not. That’s an easy thing to say. He was poor when he came on against Liverpool, against Atalanta he was really slow and got caught lots of times so his form hasn’t been good enough to walk into a Real Madrid team.
“But saying that, he has had levels of form in the past, at Juventus and for France. He may feel a change is better for him and the fact that he’s on a free, there’ll be plenty of clubs who will want to take him. No problem at all.
“I don’t know whether the current United team plays to his strengths but if he goes to Real Madrid, they might. And if he’s got Mbappé or Erling Haaland in front of him he could still be an absolute superstar there.”
