Raiola on Pogba and Donnarumma

Agent Mino Raiola is in Italy and discussed why Juventus “should dream” of a Paul Pogba return, Gianluigi Donnarumma’s future and suggesting “Milan find a new buyer quickly.”

The representative was in the stands of the Stadio Rigamonti to watch Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Milan beat Brescia 1-0 this evening and spoke to reporters on the way out.

“Ibrahimovic is trying to do the best for his team. I hope that his career never ends, but if it does, then it’s right to do so in one of the biggest clubs in Europe,” said Raiola.

“There were many alternatives on the table, but if he chose Milan, then he made the right decision. Having said that, I don’t like this Milan project, because I don’t think this is the squad Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban are dreaming of.

“I’ve never spoken to Ivan Gazidis or anyone else, but if this is the Milan they want, then I suggest they find a buyer for this club as soon as possible.”

Raiola also represents Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and was asked if Juventus are still interested.

“If they didn’t like Donnarumma, it would mean they didn’t know anything about football. I got threatened and insulted by Milan fans just because I said something was going to happen and then it did. Let’s go forward for another two years, I don’t want to create any more controversy.”

However, Raiola was a little more lenient when it came to another client, Manchester United want-away midfielder Pogba. Should Juventus fans dream of a return?

“Juve fans should dream, because if you do not dream, then you are dead. I do not work in dreams, but in the real world, so have to make the right choices for my clients.

“This is not the right moment to say what Paul’s future will be.”
