One of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer, the situation surrounding Paul Pogba and his long-term future at Manchester United has seemingly been simmering for months.
Reports in recent weeks had suggested that the France World Cup winner wanted out of Old Trafford this summer and that Real Madrid and former club Juventus were interested in his services.
Mino Raiola then admitted that he was in the middle of trying to sort a move out for his client, and now, speaking to talkSPORT, the Italian has insisted that Pogba has done “nothing wrong” and that he has been “professional and respectful” during the ordeal.
After hearing the latest comments from Pogba’s agent, United fans took to Twitter to voice their opinion on the matter and many were rather surprisingly on the Frenchman’s side.
Some Red Devils supporters pointed to the 26-year-old turning up for the club’s pre-season tour as a major sign of his professional attitude and compared Pogba’s behaviour to the situations surrounding Neymar and Antoine Griezmann.
Indeed, whilst United fans were seemingly aggrieved by some of Raiola’s words, most were rather more reluctant to point the blame at Pogba himself and expressed their concern at seeing the midfielder be manipulated.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
All of you saying Pogba Has Disrespected us. Have you seen Neymar and Grezimann Lately ??

SAF was spot on about this agent. Absolute poison. He isn’t interested in pogba’s career just the massive fees he’ll get once he moves to another club.
Pogba hasnt been an angel but can’t be happy with how his agent is going about his business.

Yh he @paulpogba did nothing wrong,the problem is that @ManUtd as a club got so many naive nd unappreciated fans,if he was an English player they wouldn’t be on him like that,Rash nd lingard were mre annoying but no one critised them like that.

Exactly. Pogba turns up for pre season unlike certain others. Never said anything bad about the club or manager.

What has pogba actually do wrong. christian eriksen did the same, said he want a new challenge and his not getting the same type of abuse as pogba. Pogba has not disrespected the club in any, if you want to talk about player disrespecting their clubs look any neymar and griezmann

The problem is not the player, it’s the agent..

he has been respectful…and is being made the scapegoat when utd have a host of other problems.
if he goes our recruitment still sucks, players are not up to standard, no DoF, and club still getting ripped off for transfer fees
