The representative of Paul Pogba has openly revealed that the Frenchman wants to pursue a fresh challenge away from Manchester United this summer.

Pogba has been with the Red Devils for the past three seasons but he has recently acknowledged that he would prefer a new challenge elsewhere.

Owing to this, there have been links with both Juventus and Real Madrid though the latter are said to hold the clear advantage with the added financial muscle.

Speaking to The Times, Raiola has now revealed that Pogba has made the decision to move on from the Red Devils and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is aware of the same, he said: "Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on.

"We are in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are. Everyone within the club from the manager to the owner knows Paul's wishes."

Real Madrid are currently reluctant to meet United's £150m asking price for the midfielder but they remain optimistic of landing his services in the next fortnight.

The Bernabeu giants are understood to have failed with a player-plus-cash move for Pogba but reports in Spain claim that a fee of around £134m could be sufficient to convince United into a sale.
