Mino Raiola insists Paul Pogba ‘has done nothing wrong’ and is hopeful his client will soon be granted his wish to leave Manchester United.

In an exclusive statement released to talkSPORT’s Jim White on Tuesday, Raiola claimed United have been aware for a long time of the World Cup winning midfielder’s desire to depart Old Trafford.

Pogba will not force an exit, however, with his agent confirming he will remain professional and respectful for as long as he is still on United’s books.

Paul Pogba suggests that he could be open to a move away from Manchester United

“The player [Pogba] has done nothing wrong,” said Raiola exclusively to talkSPORT’s Jim White. “He has been respectful and professional in every way and always.

“The club has known his feeling for a long time.

“It is a shame other people only like to criticise without the right information, and I am also sorry that the club does not take any position against this.

“Hopefully there will be soon a satisfying solution for all parties.”

Raiola came out last week to confirm Pogba, the France midfielder, wants to leave Old Trafford three years after joining from Juventus.

“Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on,” Raiola told The Times. “We are in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are.

“Everyone within the club, from the manager to the owner, knows Paul’s wishes.”

The midfielder has since been widely criticised for openly revealing his desire to leave, with many claiming he should be more respectful to the club rather than eyeing up greener pastures.

Criticism was renewed on Monday as Pogba was targeted by fans on social media when a video surfaced of him allegedly clashing with Jesse Lingard when United touched down in Australia for their pre-season tour.

United have so far remained silent on the Pogba issue, with neither the club nor manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer releasing a statement to clarity his future – or condemn those who criticise a player who remains on their books.

Raiola says this criticism is unwarranted as Pogba has remained professional and continues to honour his contract with the Red Devils.

Real Madrid and Juventus have both been linked with signing the 26-year-old this summer, and Pogba last month said it may be time for him to move on to ‘find a new challenge‘.
