The agent of Paul Pogba says only Sir Alex Ferguson's presence is keeping him from finally turning his back on Manchester United and joining Juventus.

Mino Raiola still expects the Frenchman to sign with Juve in the coming days.

Raiola, with whom Ferguson says United had agreed terms, disclosed that "as things stand now it is more likely that he goes away from Manchester". Raiola would not discuss the reasons but said that without the presence of Ferguson, the player would have left the club already.
