Raiola hands Man Utd fresh frustration over Pogba plans

The agent of Paul Pogba has made contact with Manchester United to postpone new contract talks - again.

With his deal due to expire in June, United directors have been pushing Pogba to make a decision about his future by Christmas.

However, AS says agent Mino Raiola called United this past week to inform them that he doesn't intend to consider negotiations until April.

Raiola is adamant he won't consider anything from United before then.

Instead, the Italian is maintaining talks with Real Madrid and Juventus about placing Pogba back on the continent next summer. From January 1, Pogba can negotiate pre-contract terms with both clubs.

The 28 year-old midfielder was sent off in Sunday's 5-0 home humiliation by Liverpool. A second-half substitute, Pogba was shown a direct red card after a challenge on Naby Keita.

Pogba is in his fifth year at United after returning to club from Juventus.
