Man Utd star Paul Pogba’s agent Raiola refuses to talk about Juventus transfer as ‘if I speak, someone gets offended’
MINO RAIOLA has refused to talk about Paul Pogba’s potential summer move to Juventus saying: “If I speak, someone gets offended.”
World Cup winner Pogba, 27, has just 18 months left to run on his current contract at Manchester United and has been linked with a move away for close to two years.Pogba had been in fine form in 2021 but for injury to strike vs Everton[/caption]
Former club Juventus have emerged as the front-runners to sign the player they sold for a then-world-record £89million in 2016.
But Raiola remaining tight-lipped on Pogba’s future, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
According to Romano, Raiola said: “Paul Pogba to Juventus?
“I can’t speak about Pogba because people are nervous, they don’t sleep at night.
“I have to work quietly… if I speak, someone gets offended.”
In December 2020, Raiola claimed Pogba wants to leave the Red Devils for pastures new.
And he later admitted Pogba was more likely to leave in the summer as it’s hard to do ‘top deals’ in January.
Reports have claimed Juventus held off signing a new midfielder in January in order to help finance a push for Pogba in July.

Real Madrid have also been linked with Pogba in recent years.
However, their current financial situation due to the coronavirus pandemic has seen them focus only on their top targets.
Los Blancos are desperate to sign Kylian Mbappe and Eduardo Camavinga this year, before launching a cut-price swoop for Erling Haaland in 2022.
That means Juventus appear to be leading a one-horse race for Pogba in the next transfer window.
Pogba sparked into life early in 2021, only for an injury in Man Utd’s 3-3 draw with Everton to see him ruled out for up to a month.
