Paul Pogba’s future with Manchester United is ‘precarious’, the player’s agent has revealed.
The French youth international is out-of-contract at Old Trafford in the summer, and is yet to agree terms on a new deal as speculation mounts over his long-term future.
First team opportunities have been limited for the 18-year-old since his controversial switch to the Red Devils from Le Havre back in 2009, and with just one Premier League appearance to his name thus far, the fear is that Pogba is becoming impatient under Sir Alex Ferguson.
With Italian reports claiming both Juventus and AC Milan are willing to offer the teenage talent higher wages in Serie ‘A’, agent Mino Raiola is well aware that his client has a big decision to make.
"It is a precarious situation," Raiola told The Independent.
"It is difficult at the moment. Manchester United want him. It is up to the boy to make some decisions. We know there are some clubs interested in him. We must finish first with Manchester and after that we will see other options, if they are there.
"The club give the indication that they want to keep him and we are talking contract terms. There is willingness from both parties at the moment."
Pogba was expected to feature in the Europa League last 32, second leg clash against Ajax last Thursday, but was left out of the 2-1 defeat after training with the first team. Raiola admitted his client was disappointed to miss out.
"It is never nice for the player not to be in the squad. It is the same for [Mario] Balotelli ," he added.
"We must keep our minds cool and heads cool. Some things are good. Some things are not good [in this situation]."
