Controversial agent Mino Raiola will “reach out” to Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the pair trade blows in public regarding Paul Pogba’s future.
United’s record signing has been sidelined for much of the season due to injury but that hasn’t kept him out of the headlines as rumours of a move away continue.
Pogba’s agent, Raiola, has contributed heavily to that narrative having called Italy the player’s “home” amid suggestions of a return to Juventus and hit back at Solskjaer’s claims that the midfielder is the club’s player.
But the agent is confident there is no bad blood between him and the United boss despite his attempts to seemingly cause division between the club and the player.
And he told Sky Sports News that he and the Norwegian have not yet spoken, but he intends to do so.
He said: “No, but I will reach out to Ole because nothing serious is going on. I certainly did not intend to have any disrespect to the club or towards him.
“Having players at Manchester United, I only want the best for the team and the club. I have nothing against Ole and I don’t think he has anything against me.
“I did only think that saying Paul is Manchester United’s was not the right reaction.
“I only wanted to respond to everyone who said that because you employ a player therefore you own them and can do whatever you want with them.”
Pogba has made just six starts in all competitions this term and is currently recovering from surgery.
United are battling to be in next season’s Champions League and Raiola insists the World Cup winner’s sole focus is on matters at Old Trafford.

“Paul has great commitment to the club, there is no question about that,” Raiola added.
“Paul has a contract with Manchester United and wants to get back fit as quick as possible and back into the team to be a positive factor until the end of the season.
“In this moment, there are no talks [over Pogba’s future]. He is only committed to Manchester United and he respects his contract. Everybody is worried about Pogba leaving, but I am not worried.”
