Mino Raiola has given Manchester United fans hopeful of a Paul Pogba return reason to believe it could be possible this summer.
The player’s representative said Pogba does not hold a grudge against the Old Trafford club for the way they treated him before his move to Juventus.
Pogba was allowed to leave on a free transfer after becoming frustrated with a lack of playing time under then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
His agent now believes he’d be the ‘most expensive player in the world’ if he was on the open market, and Raiola has dropped hints that Juventus may decide to cash in at the end of the season.
Manchester United are one of the clubs linked with the French international, although they’d have to swallow their pride and break out the chequebook to re-sign the midfielder.

“Paul has always said he is not angry with Manchester United - you need to move on,” Raiola said as reported by the Daily Mirror.
“So there is no personal grudge against Manchester United. On the contrary, he holds Manchester United very dear and has very nice memories.”
Pogba recently signed a five-year deal with Juventus and will not be leaving the club in the January transfer window. However, with figures touted around the £70m mark, Juventus may be tempted to sell Pogba to fund their own transfer plans come the summer.
