Raiola: Juventus pact stopped Pogba joining Chelsea

Mino Raiola has spoken further on Paul Pogba's move from Juventus to Manchester United.

Pogba is now happily settled at United after his world record move.

“Paul could have left as early as last year," Raiola told Rai Sport.

“[Jose] Mourinho already wanted him at Chelsea, but we had an agreement with Juventus to win the League and Champions League and then goodbye.

“I think [Napoli President Aurelio] De Laurentiis should give Paul a great gift, because Juventus would never have spent €90m to get [Gonzalo] Higuain from Napoli [without the Pogba money]."
