Raiola told Telefoot: "I never spoke to Pogba about the transfer market when he was taking part in Euro 2016, then he went on vacation because he was very disappointed by losing the final.

"Zidane also wanted him, as well as five or six clubs. Manchester United are stronger thanks to having Pogba and Real Madrid are not."
