Manchester United face up to losing contract rebel Pogba
27 February 2012
Manchester United's attempts to keep teenage prodigy Paul Pogba have hit crisis point. United have been in talks for weeks with the 18-year-old French midfielder about a new contract.
But Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, admitted the teenager's future at Old Trafford was now 'precarious' after he was told to train alone after being left out of the squad for the second leg of the Europa League tie against Ajax.
Raiola and United refused to confirm or deny that Pogba, out of contract in the summer, was excluded from first-team training last Friday.
'It is a precarious situation. It is difficult,' Raiola said. 'United want him. It is up to the boy to make some decisions.'
