Pogba and Niang not untouchable

The agent of Paul Pogba and M’Baye Niang says that Juventus and Milan will never be able to silence transfer interest in the duo.

Reports yesterday suggested that Real Madrid were keen on one of the pair after the Spanish club apparently sent a private jet to Verona to pick up the father of an unnamed French youngster.

“Florentino Perez must have the wrong address…” Mino Raiola told Tuttosport on Tuesday.

“If you want to pick up the father of Pogba or Niang, then Perez should have sent a plane to France.

“Anyhow, if he wants those players then he has to speak to me. I’m the person that he has to negotiate with.

“Real’s interest? It’s a much wider discussion. Exceptional boys like these two are obviously going to be liked by Real. These two are liked by the whole world.

“Right now there are no contracts that can tie down a player to any club. No one, when you are admired around the globe, can be 100 per cent certain of keeping a player.”

Midfielder Pogba, 20, has developed into a first team player for Juve this season after his move from Manchester United.

Striker Niang, 18, has only scored once in 20 games for Milan but is still highly rated following his switch from Caen.
