“Unhappy” Paul Pogba Should Leave Manchester United


ISLAMABAD, December 8 (online): Paul Pogba is “unhappy” at Manchester United and should leave in the next transfer window, his agent Mino Raiola said, in comments that may signal the exit of the one-time world’s most expensive player. Raiola said the World Cup-winning France midfielder, 27, needs a “change of scene” after struggling to establish himself under United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “Paul’s unhappy at Manchester United, he can’t express himself any more as he would like to and as we expect of him,” Raiola told Italian newspaper Tuttosport.
“He has to change teams, he needs a change of scene. His contract is up in a year-and-a-half, in the summer of 2022, but I think the best solution for all sides is a transfer in the next window.”
He added that Pogba, who returned from a spell at Juventus for a then world record fee of 89 million pounds ($118 million) in 2016, has no plans to extend his contract.
“The club… knows it risks losing him for nothing, as at the moment the player has no intention of extending his contract,” Raiola said.
“If anyone doesn’t understand, they don’t understand anything about football.”
