Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted today that he was offered the chance to sign Paul Pogba in the January window by Mino Raiola.
The Frenchman has had many issues at Manchester United over the past few months and this will certainly not help.
This comes following Pep Guardiola’s press conference in which he was asked about Mino Raiola who recently labelled him a coward and a dog.
Safe to say Guardiola wasn’t happy.
“I have many [enemies]…..especially agents. I have a lot,” he explained.
“I will answer another day, today before the game I will not,” he said initially, before changing his mind.
“So I don’t understand why I am so… I agree with him. Finally, the people discover my secrets, I am a bad guy.
“I’m a coward. I don’t understand why I am such a bad guy.
“I never speak with him, so I don’t know maybe Ibra explained many things about me.”
Pep Guardiola has revealed that agent Mino Raiola offered him Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in January.

Then, out of nowhere, Guardiola revealed that Raiola actually offered him the chance to sign Pogba in January.
Not only that, he also offered Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
“But, two months ago he offered me Mkhitaryan and Pogba to play with us. Why? he continued.
“Why he offer? He was interested in Mkhitaryan and Pogba to play with us?
“So I’m like a guy, so he has to protect his players and he has to know so he cannot bring the players to a guy like me, like a dog.
“And comparing a dog is bad. It’s not good. He has to respect the dogs.”
“I said no. We don’t have the money enough to buy Pogba because he is so expensive.”
One Man City player who already has left Jose Mourinho in his past is Kevin De Bruyne.
Now the player has revealed why the manager caused him to leave Chelsea.
