Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola “should never be dealt with again” by Man Utd after his latest comments, says Gary Neville.
Pogba’s controversial agent, Raiola, spoke publicly about his player being “unhappy” at Man Utd, while he also claimed that Pogba’s time at the Red Devils was “over”.
The Frenchman has started United’s last two Premier League fixtures against West Ham and Manchester City, scoring against the Hammers – but it remains to be seen if he fits into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s long-term plans.

And Neville has grown tired of Pogba’s attempts to leave the club and has called on Man Utd to have no further dealings with Raiola.
“I can accept a player at United not playing well – even being a bit down,” Neville said on Sky Sports.
“But it is quite categoric, we have to be really clear, his agent, his best friend has tried to get him out of this football club for the last 15 to 16 months.
“Whether he’s been loved for not, he doesn’t want to be here. If a player doesn’t want to be at the club, you’ve got to find an exit strategy.
“I’m not having a go at Pogba. He doesn’t want to live in Manchester, he wants to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona or another club of that ilk. Great, well done.
“United have a big problem when they have a star player in the dressing room whose agent categorically goes out the night before the biggest game of the season and says he doesn’t want to be at the club.
“The lack of respect – the guy should never be dealt with again by this football club.”
