'Journalist = parrots': Pogba to United deal still isn't done, says Mino Raiola

The transfer saga appeared to come to an end today – but it’s not done yet.

JUVENTUS AND MANCHESTER UNITED have not agreed a record-breaking deal for Paul Pogba, the French midfielder’s agent said despite widespread reports to the contrary on Friday.

Multiple outlets reported that the 23-year old would be undergoing a medical in Los Angeles today, bringing an end to the summer-long saga.

But his agent, Mino Raiola, dismissed the reports on Twitter this afternoon and said that journalists’ rush to be first with the news was leading to incorrect reports.

It is widely believed that Raiola’s own agent fee, thought to be in the region of £20 million, is one of the major obstructions to the transfer being completed.

This development may open the door for Real Madrid again after the Spanish club had already conceded defeat in the race to sign the Frenchman.
