Paul Pogba not so desperate to move to Manchester United

Is Paul Pogba going to sign-up a new deal with its present employer, Juventus ?

He’s the man that Joe Mourinho wanted to kickstart his revolution at Old Trafford, but after being heavily linked with a move to Manchester United it is being reported that Paul Pogba is ready to snub a move broad and instead sign a new deal with present employer Juventus.



That is according to the 23-year-old’s agent, Mino Raiola, anyway. He has already secured deals for two of his other clients, Zlatan Ibrahimovi? and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, at the Red Devils this summer, and after a string of fine performances at Euro 2016 Pogba was expected to follow suit.

But Raiola has put the dampeners on any potential move, stating that ‘several clubs are in pursuit of his [Pogba’s] services’. "There is a lot of talk about Paul's future but maybe he will not leave Juventus,” he added. “He is in no rush to leave and Juventus do not want him to go - they want him to renew his contract.”



"Paul is not desperate to move. We are very happy at Juventus and they are a club that want to keep their star players."



This is a known tactic of football agents around the world: creating speculation of their player’s willingness to move elsewhere in an attempt to secure a better contract at their present club. And it appears that Juventus have taken the bait, offering the midfield powerhouse revised terms on a five-year deal expected to net a cool £130,000 a week.



That has not put off Mourinho or his chief executive at United, Ed Woodward, however. They are ready to bid a world record fee of £105 million for Pogba’s services, with a contract in the region of £200,000 a week.



Ironically, then Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson allowed Pogba to leave the club as a teenager on a free contract, stating ‘attitude issues’ as the reason for the decision.
