Here we go again! Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola praises a move to Juventus next summer as he reveals that ‘Turin has remained in his heart’ and ‘the opportunity to return is there’ with the Frenchman in the final year of his Old Trafford deal
- Paul Pogba’s contract with Manchester United expires at the end of this season
- The United man has long been linked with a return to Italy’s Juventus
- Mino Raiola has reportedly said Turin has remained at the heart of the midfielder
- He added that there is a possibility that Pogba will return to the Bianconeri
Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has reportedly claimed the Manchester United midfielder could return to Juventus at the end of his contract.
The French midfielder left the Bianconeri to return to the Red Devils in 2016 for £89 million.
In recent years there has been constant speculation about Pogba’s future and the 28-year-old’s contract with the club will expire at the end of this season.

Raiola has not spoken for the first time about his client Pogba’s future at Old Trafford.
He told RAI as per Corriere dello Sport: ‘Pogba’s contract expires next year. We will talk to Manchester and see.
“Turin has definitely stayed in his heart and he cares about these things a lot. The possibility of returning to Juventus is there, but it also depends on Juve.”
Mino Raiola has admitted Pogba could return to Juventus next summer
The French World Cup winner has been linked in recent seasons with a return to Juventus and a move to Spanish giant Real Madrid.
Raiola and United have been at odds before, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saying the Frenchman was ‘our player, not Mino’s’.
This prompted the super agent to hit back at Solskjaer and say that Pogba was not owned by anyone.
In December, before United’s decisive Champions League game in Leipzig, Raiola declared that Pogba wanted to leave.
He said: ‘I can say it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United. He has to change teams, he has to change the sky.
Pogba has had a great start to the season and has provided seven assists so far this season
“He has a contract that expires in a year and a half, in the summer of 2022, but I think the best solution for the parties is to sell in the next market.
“Otherwise the club, with whom relations are excellent, know full well that they risk losing him on a free transfer as it is not the player’s intention to extend the contract for the time being.”
Pogba, on the other hand, has never publicly expressed his wish to leave the club and has always insisted that he continue to give his all for the club.
The Frenchman has had an excellent start to the season by providing seven assists in the first four games of the season.
If United cannot tie Pogba to a new deal, he will be free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement in January for a move to another location next summer.
