Mino Raiola flew back to Italy from Manchester on Thursday night and admitted they are still far from coming to a deal.
"As long as there's hope there's life," Raiola told Sky Italia. "He's calm but anxious to come to an agreement, that's normal for a lad of 19.
"We're working and we're hoping."
Reports indicate that the sticking point is the 19-year-old's wage demands.
