Though his contract is originally meant to drag into 2022, there are indications that Paul Pogba will be leaving Old Trafford as early as January 2021 if the words of his agent Mino Raiola is taken seriously.
Speaking to Italian publication Tuttosport, Raiola says that Pogba is “unhappy at Manchester United.”
“(Paul) is no longer able to express himself as he would like and as expected of him,” Raiola told Tuttosport.
“He has to change teams, he has to change the air.
“He has a contract that will expire in a year and a half, in the summer of 2022, but I believe the best solution for the parties is to sell it to the next market.
Otherwise, the Old Trafford club, with which relations are excellent, knows that they would risk losing him on a free transfer, given that for the moment it is not the player’s intention to extend the contract.
“If someone doesn’t understand it, ergo they understand very little about football. In any case, put all the blame on me if Paul leaves next summer.”
Since returning from a positive Covid-19 test, 2018 World Cup winner Pogba has failed to secure a regular starting spot in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.
He has only started five Premier League games this season.
Pogba, 27, signed for Manchester United in August 2016 for $120 million from Juventus.
