Paul Pogba’s agent has admitted he’s been meeting with representatives from United in attempt to try and put an end to the longest contract saga in the Red’s history.
The latest twist in the never ending tale comes with the news that the midfielder has had talks with United , yet still hasn’t made his mind up as to where his future lies.
Agent Mino Raiola who represents Pogba also confirmed that despite reports italian giants Juventus have yet to make a firm offer for the youngster.
Speaking to the Guardian Raiola stated:
“We are talking to Manchester United [and] we know there is the interest of Juventus. I had a very good meeting with the club – several, yesterday also. It’s obviously not my decision, it’s the player’s and that’s it. It was absolutely a good meeting with Manchester United, yes.”
“Now, we didn’t have negotiations yet with Juventus because we think first the boy has to decide what he wants to do. It doesn’t make sense to go around saying this or that. You make a decision and then you sit down and you come to a deal.
“Paul has to decide for himself what he wants to do. Manchester United is a fantastic club, I think it’s one of the best, if not the best in the world, for various reasons. And it’s very difficult for a boy who has an opportunity to go to clubs to leave a big club as Manchester United, or to leave the interest of other clubs. I know that is difficult and a very hard [decision] to make and it can be career deciding, because you make a decision now and you only know when you’re 35 if you make the right decision.”
It’s difficult to know what, who or which news publication to believe when it comes to Pogba as there’s so many conflicting stories regarding the 19 year-old’s future that until he signs for a club all we have are rumours and conjecture. The latest twist seems to point towards Pogba staying at United, but I’m pretty sure given time there’ll be another story of him having talks with another club, probably emanating from his agent again.
