Manchester United star Paul Pogba has been frequently linked with a move away from Old Trafford. And now, his agent Mino Raiola has openly spoken on the France international. Raiola has slammed United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer through a tweet.
Ahead of Man United’s match against Chelsea on Monday (Tuesday IST), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer slammed Mino Raiola, stating that Paul Pogba was United's player and not Raiola’s. He further claimed that he had not spoken with Pogba about anything related to his agent yet.
These comments were enough to anger Mino Raiola tremendously. The agent slammed Solskjaer on Twitter and claimed that Paul Pogba was neither his property nor the club’s. Rather, he owned himself. A club cannot own a human and he hoped that Solskjaer did not wish to assert that Pogba was his prisoner.

Mino Raiola kept on ranting against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stating that the manager should first listen to what he has said. He also claimed that Solskjaer was frustrated with various other issues.
Paul Pogba has been unavailable for Solskjaer since his injury against Arsenal in September last year. The player underwent surgery to get rid of his ankle issues in January. Amid his recovery phase, there have been multiple reports suggesting his departure from the club.
Mino Raiola has been at loggerheads with Man United due to the club’s failure to sign Erling Haaland in the January transfer window. The Norwegian international was on the verge of joining the Red Devils. However, he ultimately decided to join Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund. The Premier League outfit had blamed Raiola for Haaland’s move to Germany. There were reports suggesting that Raiola influenced Haaland to join Dortmund as United tried to sideline him while negotiating for the striker.
