- Pogba's agent has allegedly given La Repubblica an interview in which he slams United.
- That goes against whatever he told Sky Sports on Monday.
- No major tier 1 source has yet backed the story up.
- If the quote's true, then Raiola clearly has a low opinion about United.
Mino Raiola's quotes have been everywhere on the web these last two days and one's not like the other.
According to La Repubblica (and everyone else who names them as the source), Raiola wouldn't take his clients to Man United any more, not in the club's current state.
Here's what Raiola allegedly said: "Pogba's problem is Manchester United. It's a club out of touch with reality and without a sporting project.
"I wouldn't take anyone there, they would even ruin Maradona, Pele and Maldini. Paul needs a club and a squad, one like Juventus was before."
What is really fishy about those quotes is that Raiola said a completely different thing to Sky Sports.
"There is nothing against United or Ole," he told Sky on 30 December. "He [Haaland] chose Borussia Dortmund ahead of them and other clubs. If he wanted to go to Manchester United I would have been obliged to take him to United but he did not."
One more strange thing is the La Repubblica article came out on 30 December, so yesterday. Normally, anything Raiola says gets posted everywhere immediately.
On the one hand, knowing Raiola's controversial record, this stuff could be true. On the other hand, the words just make no sense and clash with any previous statements.
We'll keep you posted as regards this quote.
