In an interview with Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Raiola claimed Pogba is unhappy at the Theatre of Dreams and urged United to sell him in the January transfer market.
Pogba’s current deal expires in 2022 and he’s said to be unhappy with his role in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side as he wants to play in a more advanced, attacking position.
It’s far from the first time that Raiola has spoken publicly about Pogba’s future at Manchester United and the timing of today’s comments will irk Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is preparing his side for a crucial Champions League tie against RB Leipzig on Tuesday.
Neville believes Raiola’s comments are disruptive and says Pogba should speak about his own future if he was unaware of the Italian’s interview.
‘Raiola – it’s happened many time before,’ tweeted Neville.
‘However surely Paul knew he was making this announcement?
‘If he wasn’t aware then we should see a quote from him very soon correcting his agent.
‘Finally to do this ahead of Leipzig and the Man Derby is terrible timing for the team.’
The Frenchman scored a stunning long-range strike to open his Premier League account this term.
With Fred suspended, Pogba is likely to start against RB Leipzig on Tuesday but it’s unclear whether Raiola’s comments have disturbed Solskjaer’s plans.
