Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola says he’s preparing a major deal for one of his clients to move to Real Madrid this summer.
“Paul is going through a difficult time,” Raiola told Spanish daily Marca of his client’s situation at United. “But let it be clear because in England they are very sensitive, Pogba is focused on making a great end to the season with Manchester United.
“My relations with Real Madrid are very good. I want to take a great footballer there and I will try this summer. It would be a pride for me and my footballers because Real Madrid is a great club. Alphonse Areola is already there, but it’s only half an operation because it’s a loan deal.
“I am in contact with Jose Angel Sanchez and I love discussing football and FIFA issues with him because his opinion interests me. I have great hope that one day he will be able to lead a great footballer to Real Madrid.”
Raiola has also confirmed that Erling Haaland, who had been a Manchester United target in January, will remain at his new club Borussia Dortmund for at least another season:
“Nobody thought that his adaptation to the Bundesliga or the Champions League in a team like Borussia Dortmund would be like that. No one expected it. It is not easy to go from Austria to Germany and show that level.
“He still has a lot to grow. He will be in Dortmund for the necessary time. It is true that he is a footballer who is enjoying the fastest stages of growth that one could think of. He did not think that when he left Salzburg. It was the right time, but I don’t think he’ll be leaving Dortmund this summer.”
