Paul Pogba’s agent sacked, read why


Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has parted ways with Manchester United star Jesse Lingard as reported by ESPN.

The super-agent was signed up by Jesse Lingard as close as in January when he had issues with Man United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and they were both in a war of words but what was most valuable to him is his wish to find a new club.

Jesse Lingard was unable to find a new club which makes the purpose of his deal with Mino Raiola defeated as he remained at Old Trafford even after the summer transfer window.

The Man United player is okay with staying with the Red Devils but he is keen on regular playing time which has not happened and reporter Rob Dawson’s sources reveal that he has parted ways with the superagent.

“Lingard has been working with Raiola, who also represents United teammate Paul Pogba, since the start of the year but will now be managed entirely by family members and other close associates,’ Dawson writes.

“The decision was mutual and Raiola remains on good terms with Lingard and his team.

“United hold an option to extend the deal by an additional 12 months until the summer of 2022 but sources have told ESPN it has yet to be triggered.

“Lingard is open to staying at Old Trafford but is also eager to play more regular football after falling down the pecking order under Solskjaer.”

Mino Raiola has been an agent to Paul Pogba for the past years. He has also made efforts to ensure the France international part ways with the Red Devils but that has not happened as Man United are keen to keep the former Juventus player at Old Trafford.

Howbeit, Jesse Lingard will find other options of leaving Man United if he cannot get more playing time before the opening of the January winter transfer window.
