Mino Raiola, the agent of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, has revealed his client will only talk with a potential suitor if the “project” they are offering suits the midfielder, the Mirror reports.
Pogba, 23, is understood to be a target of Manchester United, who are reportedly prepared to pay a world record sum of £100m to resign their former academy product.
New United boss, Jose Mourinho, has already embarked on revamping the squad with three signings already confirmed: Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Eric Bailly but the Juventus midfielder is understood to be the key target for the former Chelsea boss.
His former club, Real Madrid, are thought to have been put off by the fees involved, but reports suggest Pogba is still open to the idea of joining last season’s Champions League winners.
His agent, Mino Raiola, however, has stressed his client is happy in Turin but should an appealing project be presented to them, they will consider a departure.
There have been reports in recent days that the Serie A have offered Pogba a new deal to fend off potential suitors and Raiola says they will consider the offer on the table.
Raiola said: “Last year, when the bid came in, I really wanted him to go to Chelsea. It didn’t happen but this year we will see.
“Juve do not want to sell him and there is a chance for us to talk about a new contract. He feels no need to leave.
“But if you come with a project that will make Paul want to leave, we’ll talk with the club.”
