Manchester - Paul
Pogba's agent Mino Raiola hopes that a breakthrough in negotiations
that benefits "all parties" will soon be made regarding the Manchester
United midfielder's future.
The French Soccer World Cup winner has stated his desire for a "new
challenge", whilst Raiola said in an interview at the weekend that
"everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on".
Pogba has travelled with the rest of the United squad for the start
of their pre-season tour to Australia despite initial claims he could
boycott the trip in order to try and force through a move.
"The player has done nothing wrong. He has been respectful and
professional in every way," Raiola told UK radio station talkSPORT.
“The club has known his feeling for a long time.
"It is a shame other people only like to criticise without the right
information, and I am also sorry that the club does not take any
position against this.
"Hopefully there will be soon a satisfying solution for all parties."
Despite scoring 16 goals this season, half of which came from the
penalty spot, Pogba was often criticised for his contribution under both
Jose Mourinho and his successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as United limped
to a sixth place finish in the Premier League.
Real Madrid and Juventus have been rumoured as possible destinations,
but should he move on, United are likely to seek a higher fee than the
then world record £89 million they spent to buy Pogba
from Juventus three years ago.
