Mino Raiola has yet again claimed that Paul Pogba could return to Juventus next summer once his contract with Manchester United expires at the end of the current season.

The Frenchman, who spent four years in Turin, returned to United in 2016 for £89m, but has constantly been linked with a move back to the Serie A giants. And with the 28-year-old's deal set to end next summer, Raiola has hinted that his client could make the switch back to Italy.

He told RAI as per Corriere dello Sport: "Pogba's contract expires next year. We will talk to Manchester and see. For sure Turin has remained in his heart and he cares a lot about these things. The possibility of returning to Juventus is there but it also depends on Juve."

Raiola has previously also tipped Pogba to leave Old Trafford, claiming back in December '20, "It’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United. Paul is unhappy with Man Utd as he is no longer able to express himself in the way that he would like and as he is expected to. Paul needs a new team, a change of air."

Pogba claimed earlier this month that he was happy to be a part of the current United set-up, following the arrivals of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Speaking before United's 1-0 win at Wolves, he told TV2: "There have always been strong Manchester United teams, but this is definitely the strongest [I've played in]. It is obviously in this club's DNA to win trophies. We have a strong team that can become champions. We know how hard it is, but we will do our best to lift the trophy this season."

"To be honest, I am very happy, I enjoy myself. The Premier League is back, I play football again after a nice holiday, so it is very, very good," he added.

"There is a huge difference from last season. Last season I had corona[virus] and no seasonal run-up, so it took a long time to get back in shape. This season I have trained, I have had a good start and I have been healthy. I feel much better and it makes a huge difference physically."
