Paul Pogba hits out at United: ‘Manchester made a mistake in not offering me a contract’


Paul Pogba has hit out at his former club Manchester United for offering him ‘nothing’ despite two contract offers worth around £300,000-a-week.

This was even after United made a number of genuine attempts to keep Pogba at the club.

“Paul, you are in a situation which is very particular. You have no idea. You have no idea,” Raiola tells Pogba as he is driving in Miami.

Pogba is a free agent and, having left United after six unfulfilling years,
