raiola guardiola zlatan - Pep: Raiola offered me Pogba and Mkhitaryan


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has made a sensational claim that superagent Mino Raiola offered Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Manchester City in January

Raiola and Guardiola have never been on the same terms since Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s departure from Barcelona. Raiola believes Guardiola treated his client badly during his time at the Catalonian capital. Raiola even termed Pep as “coward” and “dog” in an interview last month.

Guardiola didn’t hold back either. On the eve of the Manchester derby, Guardiola made a sensational claim that Raiola offered Pogba and Mkhitaryan to him in the winter transfer window.

Ahead of City’s match with United at the Etihad stadium, Guardiola said: “Two months ago he offered me Mkhitaryan and Pogba to play with us.

“Why did he offer? He was interested in Mkhitaryan and Pogba playing with us?

“So he has to protect his players and he cannot bring the players to a guy like me, like a dog.

“I said no. We don’t have enough money to buy Pogba because he is so expensive.”

Mkhitaryan ultimately moved to Arsenal and there are widespread rumours that Pogba and Jose Mourinho’s relationship has hit a new low in recent days.
