Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola admits the midfielder is unlikely to leave Manchester United in January.

But Raiola has left the door open for a summer move away from Old Trafford.

Raiola caused a stir last week when he claimed Pogba was unhappy at Manchester United and "needs to change team".

However, the France international later posted a message on Instagram suggesting he had no intention of going anywhere soon.

Raiola has now hinted that the reaction to his initial comments was over the top, but he still believes a summer transfer for the 27-year-old is on the cards.

"When it comes to him in England, they are sensitive, perhaps too sensitive," Raiola was quoted as saying by Tuttosport at the Golden Boy Awards.

"In January, the big players hardly move, then in the summer let's see what happens."

Pogba's future has been an almost constant source of speculation for the last couple of seasons, and reports are currently liking him with a return to Juventus.
