Raiola admits Pogba Man Utd move 'took over a year'

Super agent Mino Raiola says Paul Pogba's world record move to Manchester United was a year in the making.

Raiola has revealed he was working on former Juventus midfielder Pogba's record-breaking return to Old Trafford for over a year.

He told talkSPORT: "Pogba was a deal that we were working on already for a year – maybe longer.

"It was a complex deal as it involves a lot of parties and involves a lot of high stakes rights and it is difficult to get them all aligned.

"I work for the player, that is always very clear, so try to do what is in the interests of the player, what is his wishes, and I try to keep that always in mind."
