Paul Pogba Wants To Leave Manchester United This Summer

Manchester United look set to lose Paul Pogba this summer after his agent Mino Raiola claimed that the midfielder is in the process of leaving the club.

The future of Paul Pogba is the most hotly debated topic amongst fans of Manchester United but it looks like they're about to get their answer with the player's agent claiming that his client wants to leave.

Super agent Mino Raiola has claimed that the club have been made aware that Pogba wants to leave Old Trafford. Speaking to the Times the Italian born Dutchman said, "Everyone within the club from the manager to the owner knows Paul's wishes.

"Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We are in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are."

United's players have already returned to training for pre-season. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Alexis Sanchez are yet to return having played in international tournaments this summer and Pogba was also given extra time off, having played three times for France.

The club are set to fly out to Australia on Sunday for their summer tour and the World Cup winner is very much expected to be with the team.

Raiola though hinted that the former Juventus man might not actually make it 'Down Under.' When asked if his client would be there the agent said, "I cannot tell you anything. I live day by day."

Pogba only moved back to Manchester in 2016, after four years with Juventus, and cost the club a world record at the time £89 million, or €105 million.

He has failed to live up to his price tag for much of the time back in the Premier League and had a huge falling out with Jose Mourinho.

Having been handed the captain's armband at the beginning of last season, following World Cup success last summer, Mourinho stripped him off the captaincy in November and then relegated the 26-year-old to the bench.

Pogba didn't even make it on as a sub in Mourinho's final game in charge, a 3-1 loss to Liverpool, but returned to form at the beginning of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reign.

He's been linked with a move to Real Madrid, or a return to Turin, all summer and the Red Devils reportedly want £150 million for him.

His future will now likely be talked about throughout the tour to Australia and the club will want his future sorted before the start of the season so they are able to sign a replacement.

Do you think Pogba will leave this summer?
