Mino Raiola has again put Europe's top clubs on alert after admitting he expects Paul Pogba to have left Juventus by the summer of 2016.

The former Manchester United star stands as one of Europe's most coveted players and has not ruled out a possible return to Old Trafford after leaving the club in 2012.

Pogba's rise to prominence has been accompanied by two Serie A titles with Juventus, but with Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain all heavily linked with moves, a long-term stay with the Bianconceri seems unlikely.

And while there are no plans for a move this January, the Frenchman's agent predicts his client will make the move either this summer or the next.

"I want the club that buys him to believe in him and be willing to pay for him," Raiola told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"If Paul leaves Juventus, it is for the absolute top. If it does not happen this year, it will be next year.

"Paul is at the same level economically as the other big stars and has a similar reputation, so he could stay for another year. But Paul is the only major star who is available at the end of the season.

"If you cannot take Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi or Zlatan Ibrahimovic, you can only go for Paul."

But Raiola did warn that Pogba, who signed a new contract until 2019 last October, is unlikely to leave Turin for anything less than €100m (£113m).

Raiola has been vocal in his plans to find Pogba a new club throughout January, prompting Juventus to concede they will eventually struggle to match the offers the Frenchman is likely to receive from elsewhere in Europe.

His agent also fuelled talk of a return to Manchester, revealing the midfielder remains on good terms with United despite his acrimonious departure under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Raiola said: "Paul has always said he is not angry with Manchester United – you need to move on. So there is no personal grudge against Manchester United. On the contrary, he holds Manchester United very dear and has very nice memories."
