Didier Deschamps has responded to comments from Mino Raiola saying that Paul Pogba is pretty much done at Manchester United.

Didier Deschamps believes agents are entitled to say what they like after Mino Raiola dropped a bombshell about Paul Pogba and his future.

Mino Raiola gave an interview to Tuttosport where he mentioned that United should let his client leave the club when the transfer window opens.

Pogba only has two goals from 13 games this term and has often been linked with moves to Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and former club Juventus.

“Paul is unhappy… He has to change teams; he has a change of air,” Raiola said. “He has a contract that will expire in a year and a half, but I think the best solution for the parties is to sell him in the next market.”

However, France boss Deschamps is not interested in Raiola’s remarks. He insists that the player’s current status as a United player is the only thing that matters.

“If I start reacting to the reactions of the agent, the uncle, the dog, the grandfather or the grandmother… they say what they want,” he told a media conference.

“For me, the important thing is the player. They have career decisions to make.”

“It’s early December and Paul is in Manchester, even though we don’t know what might happen.”

“Some will be able to change clubs. I can give an opinion if they ask me, but certainly not advice. It’s their career and it’s up to them to make their choices.”
