Paul Pogba not too big for Ligue 1, says Juvents star's agent Mino Raiola.


Paul Pogba's agent has rejected claims the Juventus star would not consider a move to Ligue 1.

Spanish newspaper AS reported last weekend that Pogba, 21, had ruled out a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, who are reported to be among his suitors, as the French league is not a big enough stage for him.

However, Pogba's representative, Mino Raiola, told Le Parisien the France international, who was born in the Paris suburbs, was open to a move to his native country.

"No, Ligue 1 is not too small for Paul Pogba. For Paul, every big club is interesting, regardless of the league," Raiola said. "We respect the Spanish league, the leagues in France, England, Italy and Germany."

Real Madrid have also been linked to Pogba, who has come good on the promise of the potential that took him to Manchester United as a teenager.

Having left Old Trafford on a free transfer in 2012, frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunities, Pogba has played a central role in Juve's back-to-back scudetto wins.

He signed a contract extension through to 2019 only last autumn, and Raiola added a summer departure from Turin was not necessarily assured.

He said: "Everyone thinks Paul is going to leave Juventus this summer, but that is not certain. Everything depends on Juve's will and Paul's. If it's the right time to leave, he'll leave."
