‘Pogba stays in January, but June…’

Mino Raiola confirms Juventus’ Paul Pogba “won’t move in January” but “June is a different time”.

The French international is one of the most highly-regarded young players in the world, and has been linked with the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea.

“He won’t move in January,” Raiola confirmed in an interview with Radio Sportiva.

“He expressed his desire to finish the year at Juve, and the big players rarely move in January.

“June, however, is very far away. In terms of the transfer market, it’s a different time, almost a different century…”

Raiola also represents Mario Balotelli and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with Diego Lopez revealing yesterday that the Milan striker wants to play for Real Madrid.

“Balotelli is different from a year ago. He’s started very well and has the misfortune of having to have an operation, now we just hope to get him back on the pitch as soon as possible.

“He’s very calm.

“Does he dream of playing for Real Madrid? I don’t know, every great player dreams of playing for Real Madrid, it’s almost logical.

“Who wouldn’t want to? Let’s hope one day he can realise his dream.

“As for Ibra, there are clear arrangements with PSG [Paris Saint-Germain], so we’ll see how the situation goes.

“I think I can all-but rule out his return to Italy as a player.

“Could he renew? There are many options, we have agreements which we want to respect and then we’ll see.”
