​Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has rubbished talks of the player reaching an agreement with Manchester United regarding a summer transfer.

Several sources have made claims concerning the Juventus midfielder over the past few days, with French publication L’Equipe reporting that the Serie A club had agreed in principle that the player could leave, while United had decided to match their €120m valuation.

Well, according to Pogba’s chief representative, no deal has been reached as yet. On Thursday morning, Raiola tweeted: “There is no deal done regarding Paul Pogba, lots of bla bla bla.”

New Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly warned Juventus that he will pursue other options if they continue to drag their heels over a deal for the 23-year-old.

“We know the profile of the player we want and we have three faces that fit that profile,” said Mourinho to the press in Shanghai.

“I’m really confident Mr Woodward [United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward] and the owners can get the profile of the player I think the squad needs.”


Mourinho’s other targets are said to be Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic, who the Portuguese brought back to Stamford Bridge two seasons ago, and Paris Saint-Germain’s Blaise Matuidi, Pogba’s compatriot.

The United manager, however, did seem confident on securing an Old Trafford return for Pogba

“I don’t confirm and I don’t deny,” said Mourinho. “I cannot tell. First of all because I don’t think its correct to speak about players from other clubs. He’s a Juventus player not a Manchester United player.

“The only thing I can say is that my board, my directors, did a fantastic job to do 75 per cent of the job I asked them to do.

“I asked them for four profiles of players, I gave them a few options and they did for me 75 per cent of the job and we just have 25 per cent to do before August 31.

“So we are in a great positon to do what I consider will be a great market for us. So we are calm.”
