However, Raiola said Pogba enjoys a strong relationship with manage Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who looked after the midfielder at youth level in his first spell at United.

“I think that Paul really went home,” Raiola said. “Paul could have gone elsewhere.

“But he really chose with his heart, to go home. Paul is a very, very nice person. For example, he’s not able to be angry at Ole because Ole treated him so good when Ole was an older player and Paul was a younger player and the respect and the love that he received from Ole means he cannot get angry at Ole.”

Raiola also said Pogba, whose season has been disrupted by injuries and illness, would like to win trophies at Old Trafford.

“Paul wants to be successful and happy and wants to win prizes and he would love to do that with Manchester United,” Raiola added. “OK, there was big interest from Real Madrid and Manchester didn’t let him go.

“We didn’t make a fuss about it and he didn’t make a fuss about it because I work in accordance with the player. You know other players can bring things to extreme but Paul doesn’t like that.

“So you work differently. There was an interest from Real Madrid but they [United] didn’t let him go.

“But Paul is not the guy I hear about from [Gary] Neville and all the frustrated ex-players who say: ‘he should be ashamed of this, ashamed of that’. Ashamed of what? He is working every day and doing his best.

“He’s not complaining there is no Champions League. Is he perfect? Nobody is. Is he also responsible for failure? He feels so. If you are in a team you are responsible for failure.”
