Paul Pogba’s Future In Doubt As Super-Agent Mino Raiola ‘Sounds Out Potential Buyers’ For Manchester United Star

Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United has reportedly been thrown into doubt.

The 25-year-old club record signing has started just 18 of their 30 Premier League matches.

And the Daily Mirror claim that his representative Mino Raiola has been sounding out Europe’s big guns as potential buyers for the Frenchman.

The super-agent has banked £41m when the Red Devils splashed out £89m to bring Pogba back to Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016.

He has also brokered deals for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku to join Jose Mourinho’s outfit.

But his criticisms over Pogba being left out of the side in recent weeks is reported to have upset the Special One.

Mourinho is believed to be aware that Raiola has been agitating behind the scenes for Pogba to be given a pay rise.

Alexis Sanchez’s move from Arsenal in January made him to the best-paid player in the top-flight.

And Raiola wants United to bump his client’s package up to bring him in line with Sanchez, who pockets around £150,000-a-week more.

But that is not the only irritation the Red Devils.

Raiola has also been vocal in his belief that Pogba is not being played in his best position.

And that too is said to have angered Mourinho and the United coaching staff.

Despite the recent problems, Pogba seems determined to overcome the issues and bring success back to the Theatre of Dreams.

The only chance of success the club have this season comes in the FA Cup after they reached a record-equalling 29th semi-final last night.

Pogba was an unused sub as Lukaku and Nemanja Matic fired them to Wembley as United defeated Brighton 2-0.

The midfielder will now head off for international duty as France continue their World Cup preparations with friendlies against Colombia and Russia.
