Mino Raiola takes swipe at Man Utd legends as he teases Pogba transfer decision

Mino Raiola has hinted Paul Pogba could be on the move in January while also taking aim at former Manchester United players.

The Frenchman is out of contract at the end of the season and is yet to commit his future to the club.

Pogba has been linked with a host of big names including Real Madrid, PSG and even a return to Juventus, the club United paid £89m for his services in 2016.

The 28-year-old will be free to open talks with foreign clubs when the January transfer window opens and his agent has now teased he could make his dreams come true in the new year.

Raiola also used the opportunity to aim a dig at United’s ex-players who have previously criticised Pogba in the past.

‘Dreaming is free, I don’t forbid anyone to dream, it’s good,’ Raiola said.

‘Then let’s see if they come true. December is the month for dreaming with Christmas and the holidays, it’s still too early, let’s see what happens.

‘We don’t know why, but when we talk about Pogba in England, even the dead wake up.

‘Some former Manchester United players, if they don’t talk about Pogba and me, they don’t talk about anything. So it’s better not to talk about it.’

Paul Scholes is one of those who delivered a particularly scathing assessment of the midfielder earlier this month by claiming he was ‘away with the fairies’ during their Champions League draw against Atalanta.

He told BT Sport: ‘[Pogba] needs somebody on him all the time… somebody there that he totally respects, he needs experienced people behind him.

‘How old he? 28? He’s a really experienced player. But he’s one of them that will get to 35 and be exactly the same.

‘He’ll still be doing the stupid stuff where he’s stud rolling the ball, holding people off showing how strong and skilful he is.

‘The biggest thing with Paul is his concentration. He goes away with the fairies at times.

‘You think of the Juventus team he played in, where he was brilliant and was why we signed him.

‘The experience around him – [Andrea] Pirlo, [Giorgi] Chiellini, [Leonardo] Bonucci, [Gianluigi] Buffon, an aggressive manager…

‘He will need that treatment until he’s 35.’
