Manchester United have reportedly had a change of heart about Paul Pogba after the club faced harsh criticism from the player’s agent Mino Raiola
According to the recent claims from the Daily Star, the Red Devils have decided to ship Pogba out this January and have slapped a massive £150million price tag on their wantaway star.
Mino Raiola has recently had some harsh words for United, accusing the Premier League giants of not being good enough for his protégé, which seems to have annoyed Ed Woodward and Co.
The controversial agent 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 (Paolo) Maldini. Paul needs a club and a squad; one like Juventus was before.”

As a consequence, United are now ready to part ways with the 26-year-old midfielder, who is heavily linked with a move to either Real Madrid or Juventus.
Pogba has been trying to force his move to the Bernabeu ever since the end of last season, but Los Blancos failed to persuade United to give the green light last summer.
Zinedine Zidane is a known admirer of his compatriot and would gladly take him to La Liga, especially after Luka Modric and Toni Kroos both endured a torrid first half of the season.
But, Pogba’s former employers, Juventus, are also interested in rehiring the player, who has made a name for himself at the Allianz Stadium before returning to United in 2016.
The France international has rarely featured for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this term due to injury problems and is expected to remain on the sidelines until the end of the month.
Frustrated with the player’s continuous injury setbacks and his behavior off the pitch, as well as Raiola’s recent statement, United might finally reconcile with Pogba’s departure this January.
