Pogba has been linked with a host of top European clubs since leaving Manchester United and lighting up Serie A – including Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain – and even a return to Old Trafford has been mooted.
However, in an interview with Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Raiola has quashed speculation that his client could be moving in the summer – claiming there’s a 1% chance of a transfer, with the 21-year-old not wanting to leave the club: “We made a pact with Juve: Paul doesn’t have to leave,” the 47-year-old told Tuttosport.
“I spoke to President Andrea Agnelli, directors Pavel Nedved, Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici, so they all agree. The club doesn’t need the money.
“At this moment the situation at Juve is ideal for Pogba. We would only leave if a situation emerged that was favourable for all concerned.
“He is wanted by seven clubs and that is certain, because they all told me so. The ones that can afford him are Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.
“If I just whistled, I’d sell Pogba tomorrow to PSG or City in a heartbeat. But Paul did not tell me to find him another club.
“What are his chances of staying? As of today it’s 99 per cent.”
