Raiola: ‘Barca could suit Pogba’

Paul Pogba’s agent Mina Raiola has admitted that Barcelona could eventually be a solution for the Juventus midfielder.

Pogba has been consistently linked with a move away from Turin at the end of this season, although Raiola insists his immediate future lies in Italy.

“Right now it’s easier for him to stay rather than leave and right now I think it’s 99 per cent he will remain with Juventus, although that could become one per cent over time,” he told Tuttosport.

“I only think of crossing a bridge when it’s right in front of me and we’ll see if the Catalans come back and talk, yet it could be a solution.

“Paul likes a challenge and it depends on the market, but he’ll only go to a team that believes in him and can develop his full potential.

“Juventus have changed their stance and would only sell him if he asks to leave.”

Raiola also took the opportunity to comment on alleged interest from Real Madrid through Zinedine Zidane.

“They wanted him 18 months ago but I didn’t like his attitude towards me. Juventus were asking for €50m but Madrid said it was a ridiculous figure,” he revealed.
