Agent Mino Raiola has fueled speculation over the departure of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba. The world champion’s contract expires next summer and because after tough negotiations it doesn’t currently look like an extension for Pogba, there is sometimes fierce speculation about a change.

From January, Raiola and Pogba are expected to officially negotiate with other clubs. Raiola left open the question of whether it would come to this. Although he said, “It’s too early to talk about Paul’s contract. We’ll see what happens. I can’t stop anyone from dreaming.”
