Man Utd make Pogba offer as Raiola hints at Bayern interest
Paul Pogba has been offered a contract extension by Manchester United, but Mino Raiola says there is interest in his client from Bayern Munich.
Mino Raiola has suggested Bayern Munich could make a move for Paul Pogba, who has also been offered a contract extension by Manchester United.
Pogba is out of contract with United at the end of the season. He has not featured since October when he was sent off in a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool.
The midfielder subsequently suffered a thigh injury while away on international duty with France last month.
United's new interim manager Ralf Rangnick said on Friday that he has spoken to Pogba, who has been rehabbing in Dubai but is due back into the United Kingdom this weekend.
Raiola confirmed in an interview with Sport1 that his client has been offered fresh terms by the Red Devils, though insisted that is just one of several options on the table, adding a move to Bayern may be hard for the Bundesliga club to pull off.
Raiola: "Bayern are the only ones who could afford Pogba"
"We have many offers for him, including a contract extension. We'll see what’s best for him," Raiola said.
When asked if a Bundesliga team would be of interest to Pogba, Raiola replied: "The German mentality is different. They cannot and do not want to pay these high salaries.
"The only German club that could do that is Bayern Munich. But even they can't get to Paul's salary. Germans are at the bottom of the international salary pyramid."
Pressed if there had been an expression of interest from Bayern, Raiola added: "Not yet, but maybe it will come.
"You have to ask Bayern. We deal with everything, but Bayern are the only ones [in Germany] who could afford him. I think we'll know more in two months."
