Bad news for Man United? Agent says Paul Pogba 'not desperate to move'

Paul Pogba's agent has suggested the France international could opt to remain with Serie A champions Juventus despite continued speculation linking him with a return to Manchester United.

Mino Raiola, who represents the 23-year-old midfielder, has revealed Juve are willing to offer Pogba fresh terms in a bid to stave off interest from across the continent.

Pogba's future could soon be decided after his international commitments with France ended following the Euro 2016 final on Sunday, though Raiola insists his client is open to the possibility of staying in Turin, where he is currently contracted to remain until 2019.

The midfielder moved to Juve in 2012 on a free transfer from United and has helped his current club win the Italian title in each of the four campaigns he has been with them.

"There is a lot of talk about Paul's future, but maybe he will not leave Juventus," Raiola told The Times.

"He is in no rush to leave, and Juventus do not want him to go. They want him to renew his contract.

"Paul is not desperate to move. We are very happy at Juventus and they are a club that want to keep their star players."

Talk of a possible world-record transfer back to Old Trafford has been circulating while Pogba has been representing his country at the Euros this summer.

New United boss Jose Mourinho has already completed the signings of defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan and the Portuguese recently stated his desire to wrap up his transfer business swiftly.
