And while he's often been accused of destabilising relationships between his clients and their respective clubs, he admits Pogba is keen to aid the Red Devils to push towards a return to elite European football.

"He [Pogba] wants to return to the team and make a great end to the season so that United can reach the Champions League," Raiola explains.

"You cannot say what will happen. Today you cannot know. Now the club and the team matter and then we will see what can happen.

"It would be a pride for me and my footballers because Real Madrid is a great club."

To date, the 52-year-old has been involved in transfer deals that are worth a reported $703 million.
