Mino Raiola has promised Manchester United that he will do all he can to persuade his client, Paul Pogba, to join the club.

This has been reported by the Manchester Evening News, who claim that Raiola is determined to help United secure another one of his clients in this transfer window. 

Enigmatic Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already joined the ranks at Old Trafford, while Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to be announced as the club's latest signing imminently.

Pogba, 23, only departed Manchester in favour of a move to Italian giants Juventus back in 2012, but it now seems that he could return to the club in the immediate future. 

It certainly appears that Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho, who replaced Dutchman Louis van Gaal as the club's manager at the end of the season, is ready to splash the cash on the France international. 

United in need 

Indeed, during his first press conference as United boss on Tuesday, the Special One admitted that it's his ambition to complete four major signings before the close of the transfer window. 

With three deals pretty much in the bag, it's clear for all to see that a central midfielder is now a priority for the United chief. 

But will he really be able to secure the services of Pogba? 


It certainly won't be easy, of course, as Spanish giants Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest in the Juventus ace. 

As well as the battle with Real, United may also face stiff opposition in the form of the player's mother who previously hit out at Sir Alex Ferguson's decision to 'punish' her son. 

She stated, as per the Independent: “We had got together with his brothers and we decided: he [Pogba] won’t re-sign.

“Ferguson punished him, he didn’t play him, Paul was alone. He even cried in Ferguson’s office over the way he was treated.”

But things are different at Old Trafford now; with Ferguson firmly in the background, Mourinho is now the man at the helm and there's no reason why Pogba wouldn't be able to go from strength-to-strength under his guidance. 

The new United chief has already worked wonders in the window, but the addition of Pogba would well and truly put the icing on the cake.
