Mino Raiola has given Manchester United a Pogba decision to make

The World Cup winner's club future remains up in the air and his agent has once again been hinting at a move to Real Madrid ahead of the summer
Coronavirus may be bringing the world to a standstill but that is not going to stop the Mino Raiola show from continuing.

Due to the current situation, nobody knows for sure what is going to happen with the remainder of the season, the summer transfer window or the next campaign, which has led to uncertainty over a number of things - not least transfers.

Things have gone quiet since the shutdown last week and everything is on hold. Clubs do not know what is going to happen - nor when - due to the virus. Nonetheless, Raiola is busy as usual.

The latest from Paul Pogba’s agent was a not so cryptic hint about a potential transfer to Real Madrid for the Frenchman in the summer.

“My relationship with Real Madrid is very good. I often speak to [general director] Jose Angel [Sanchez]. It’s interesting, as well as a pleasure, to talk to him about football and the events related to FIFA,” Raiola told Spanish newspaper Marca this week.

“One day I hope to bring a great champion to Real. At the moment, I have [PSG 'keeper Alphonse] Areola, but it’s on loan. This summer I would like to bring a big player to Madrid on a permanent deal. It would be a pride for me and for all my players, because Real are a great side.”

He didn’t name names but there is no secret in the fact Zinedine Zidane would like Pogba at Santiago Bernabeu. The midfielder has already said himself that he is open to a new challenge and admires the Spanish side.

United are aware that having a player who is represented by the Italian agent brings alongside it an element of drama. That's a price many would be willing to pay for a world-class talent at the club.
