Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba‘s agent Mino Raiola has disclosed they “are in the process” of facilitating a move away from Manchester United, in what is a confirmation that the Frenchman wants to leave Old Trafford.

The French World Cup winner, who was absent from pre-season training with United this week, said last month that “now could be a good time to find a new challenge”.

Raiola also says United are aware of Pogba’s desire to leave Old Trafford this summer and cast doubt over whether the 26-year-old will travel with the squad on their pre-season tour on Sunday.

He told The Times: “Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We are in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are.”

Raiola added: “Everyone within the club, from the manager to the owner, knows Paul’s wishes.”

When asked if Pogba would travel with the United squad for a pre-season tour of Australia on Sunday, Raiola said: “I cannot tell you anything. I live day by day.”

Pogba wants to leave United and has been linked with a return to former side Juventus.

Real Madrid also have a longstanding interest in the 26-year-old midfielder but Sky in Italy understands Pogba would prefer a return to Turin, three years after they sold him to United for a then world-record fee of £89m.
