Manchester United’s hopes of signing Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba over the summer have received a massive boost after his agent Mino Raiola criticised Real Madrid’s transfer policy.

The French international midfielder is considered to be one of the hottest properties in Europe right now and is expected to be sold for a whopping £70 million this summer and has a host of clubs watching him after having put in two great seasons in the Italian Serie A for Juventus.

‘Real Madrid are a club that is used to buying players like you buy a facecloth – and then throws them away like a facecloth,’ he told L’Equipe.

‘We don’t want to go to a club like that.

We want to go to a club that believes in Paul’s potential.’

United’s main rival could be French champions Paris Saint-Germain, after the clubs Qatari president Nasser Al Khelaifi reportedly met with the 22-year-old.

‘That means that they [PSG] are perhaps interested, but I will start to think that from the moment there is something concrete,’ said Raiola.

‘I just know that Paul, whichever club he’ll be at, will succeed.’
