Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has denied any deal for his client is done between Juventus and Manchester United.
Sources have said the clubs have agreed to all the details on Paul Pogba’s world-record transfer, with the midfielder set to undergo a medical exam to complete the move to Old Trafford.
But Raiola said on Twitter on Friday that the deal was not yet complete, while also criticising the media coverage.
After calling journalists “parrots,” the agent wrote: “No deal done between Clubs. Its a game between Italy press and UK press who announce it first and who is worse.”
Journalist = parrots
No deal done between Clubs
Its a game between Italy press and UK press who announce it first and who is worse.

Raiola’s fee had been a main sticking point in the talks, sources said, as Juve insist that United pay it all.
Sources said the three parties had struck a deal by Friday morning, with United negotiating to pay Raiola less than the initial figures and Juve set to pay the tax on the deal.
But Raiola’s tweet has put a damper on expectations that Pogba’s move could be announced before the weekend.
