Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has admitted his client could be tempted to leave Juventus this summer. The 23-year-old midfielder has been linked with a big-money return to Manchester United and the Italian-born Dutch agent has revealed Pogba could quit Serie A if the right "project" presents itself.

Pogba was the target of a bid from Chelsea last summer and Raiola has admitted he wanted the midfielder to make the move to Stamford Bridge at the time. However, Raiola also suggested the sought-after star, who moved to Juventus from United in 2012, could return to Old Trafford in the coming weeks.

"Last year, when the bid came in, I really wanted him to go to Chelsea. It didn't happen but this year we will see," he said of the reported United transfer target, according to the Manchester Evening News.

"Juve do not want to sell him and there is a chance for us to talk about a new contract. He feels no need to leave. But if you come with a project that will make Paul want to leave, we'll talk with the club."

United manager Jose Mourinho is reported to have identified Pogba as one of four "fundamental" signings he hopes to make this summer, having already bought defender Eric Bailly, midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Rumours of United's interest are given further credence by Raiola's claim that Mourinho tried to sign the midfielder last summer, when he was still in charge of Chelsea.
