Paul Pogba’s super-agent Mino Raiola has been in a bit of a row with Manchester United for a few weeks. The issue started when Mino allegedly made controversial statements regarding United and how they conduct business. Mino also accused the club of not wanting to release Pogba in the January transfer window. United boss Ole didn’t take lightly to this and made known he would have a conversation with the midfielder regarding his agent’s reckless speech. 

It seems the drama is far from over as Mino Raiola has once again slammed Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s comments. Mino is said to be furious on Ole laying claims that the midfielder belongs to the club. 

Pogba, 26, recently had foot surgery and has been going through rehabilitation. The France international has been missing in action since late December and has been involved in only seven Premier League appearances this season. With the drama surrounding his agent and his fitness being questioned by fans, this has lead to speculations he could be on his way out of Old Trafford by the summer. 

Mino didn’t help matters either when he added fuel to the fire by stating the midfielder could be returning back to Juventus at the end of the season. In return Solskjaer hit back by saying the Red Devils have complete control of Paul’s future. 

Speaking to reporters Ole said, ”I’ve not spoken to Mino, that is for sure. And, no, I haven’t sat down and told Paul to tell Mino what he should say. Paul is our player and not Mino’s.”

Mino has now taken to Twitter to hit back at Solskjaer on Monday evening, reminding the United boss that Paul belongs to only Paul.

In a lengthy tweet, the super-agent wrote: 

“Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer’s property, Paul is Paul Pogba’s,” Raiola wrote.

“You cannot own a human being already for a long time in the UK or anywhere else. I hope Solskjaer does not want to suggest that Paul is his prisoner. But before Solskjaer makes comments about things I say he should inform himself better about the content of what has been said.

“I am a free citizen who can think and express my thoughts. Until now I was maybe too nice to him. Solskjaer should just remember things that he said in the summer to Paul. I think Solskjaer may be frustrated for different reasons and is now mixing up some issues. I think that Solskjaer has other things to worry about. At least if I was him I would.”

Pogba is yet to make any statement on the drama that’s been unfolding though he has consistently been linked with a move away from Old Trafford. Last summer the 26-year-old suggested he was ready to leave the club while being linked to a move to Real Madrid at the time. The midfielder’s contract is expected to expire in the summer of 2021. 

Paul Pogba signed to Manchester United in 2016 for a then world-record transfer fee of £89.3 million from Italian giants Juventus. Fans have accused his agent Mino of using his players to make money. With reports circulating that Mino took £20m in the deal where Pogba signed for Manchester United. The same report claims every few years Mino convinces players to transfer in order for him to get another big payday. Moving his players in their best interest is not his concern but for his personal gain, the report also claims.

Popular football commentator Al Foran also dropped his own two cents on Raiola’s comments.
