Manchester United legend and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has claimed that midfielder Paul Pogba wants to leave the club, but was scathing in his opinion about the player’s agent Mino Raiola, calling him a disgrace.


Pogba had admitted in the summer that he was ready for a new challenge, with reports suggesting that ​Real Madrid would make a move for the player. Instead, the Spanish club chose to go for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard while Pogba had to settle for remaining in England.


Neville believes that Pogba has his heart set on leaving the club, but is insistent that United should not be doing business with super agent Raiola.



He told Norwegian media outlet TV2: “He wants to leave. He has made it clear. His agent is a disgrace and has been a disgrace all over Europe - not just for Manchester United. They must stop working with him. He doesn't have the values you want in your club.


“My opinion is that Manchester United need not negotiate with him. He will try to fix a transfer for his player, and will try to take part of the transfer sum himself. That's how he operates. For Manchester United, it’s devastating. He [Pogba] is one of the best and most famous players in the world, but every week there are new issues.”


It remains to be seen if there will be a January transfer for the player or if he would have to wait until the summer for a new club, but it is unlikely Pogba will be a United player next season.
