Raiola: Zlatan threatened me if I didn't place Pogba at Man Utd!

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was key to Paul Pogba moving to Manchester United, admits super agent Mino Raiola.

Raiola has sensationally claimed the Swede issued an ultimatum in a bid to ensure he linked up with the French midfielder.

“Zlatan had signed for Manchester United, called me up and told me: 'Don't transfer Pogba elsewhere or I'll break your legs'," he told De Volkskrant.

Raiola also gave his opinion on Pogba's best position in the United team.

He said: “Pogba still has to find his place in the team. My preferred position for him is left attacking midfielder.

“With his power, stamina and technique. Pogba would be unplayable in that role. But Mourinho takes the decisions."
