Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola on Tuesday said Pogba was unhappy at Old Trafford and likely to leave. Four days later Pogba played the full 90 minutes as United draw with rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford.
But while not addressing those comments directly, Pogba said he was giving his full effort for United.
“I’ve always fought and will always fight for Manchester United, my team-mates and the fans,” he wrote on Instagram after the City game.
“Bla bla is not important.
“The future is far (away), today is what matters and I am 1000 per cent involved!
“Always strong together… all has been clear between the club and myself and that will never change. When you don’t know what’s going on inside, don’t talk,” he added.
Raiola, one of the most outspoken agents in the game who handles a number of top international players, has made several criticisms of United in recent times.
“It’s best to speak clearly, look ahead and not lose time looking for someone to blame – Paul is unhappy at Manchester United, he can’t express himself as he would like and the way we expect him to,” Raiola said in an interview with Italian newspaper Tuttosport published on Tuesday.
“He needs to change teams, he needs to change air. I think the best solution for both parties would be to sell him in the next transfer market.
Pogba’s contract at United runs out in June 2022.
