Manchester United midfielder Fred says that the Red Devils are “trying to bring Paul Pogba closer” to the club. His statement is crucial at a time when Man Utd seem to be at full-scale war with the so-called super-agent, Mino Raiola.

Off late, Raiola has been consistently attacking the Manchester club and, earlier this week hit out at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his treatment of Pogba.

The France international wants to leave Old Trafford behind, with Real Madrid and Juventus both showing interest in a potential transfer.

And, now, Fred has admitted the United squad are working in tandem to try and bring Pogba “closer” to the club.

He’s a great person and a great player,” Fred told Brazilian outlet UOL Esporte. “On a daily basis we [are] together a lot. He’s a good guy and we try to bring him closer to United.

“Unfortunately, he was injured a lot this season, but he can still help a lot.

“Needless to say, he is a great player. May he recover quickly, because he is world champion and being 100 per cent will help us a lot.”

Fred continued:

We feel bad because of the injury.

“His way of being does not change the good person and the great player he is. He’s a very hard-working guy, who struggles to get back soon.

“He has his personality, but that shouldn’t get in the way of any analysis.”

United blocked Pogba leaving the club during the summer transfer window, with Solskjaer intervening and convincing the Frenchman to stay.

  1. All the critics of Pogba dont realise it isnt Pogba it’s that slimy slug Raiola who is constantly stirring the shit upsetting Pogba so he will ask for a transfer so Raiola gets a signing fee. Pogba fault is he listens to Raiola. He is upsetting Pogba that’s why he isnt performing
    Let’s face it Pogba can play if he was happy but with Raiola making him unhappy with the club then he isnt going to give it 100%. The only way which is impossible is to get Pogba to kick Raiola into touch. I think putting Pogba wanting to play with Fernandes would be exciting. I think the only way for United to keep Pogba this summer is for them to sign some good midfielders a d show him he will be part of a good side.
