Manchester United are thought to be one of many admirers of young Ajax defender Mattijs de Ligt, but their chances of signing him could hinge on none other than Mino Raiola, Manchester Evening News reported on Friday.

Reports have suggested that Raiola - agent of de Ligt - could persuade his client to join another club because of United's treatment of Paul Pogba.

Pogba is another of Raiola's high-profile players, and has been the centre of speculation in recent weeks after various comments to the media between him and his manager Jose Mourinho.

That culminated in Pogba telling reporters that United should 'attack, attack attack' after their home draw with Wolves. Mourinho responded by telling Pogba he would never captain the club again.

The following day, the pair were involved in a heated discussion on the training pitch that was filmed by cameras.

Raiola has been quick to defend his player, too. After former United player Paul Scholes criticised Pogba's performances, Raiola took to Twitter to criticise Scholes' judgement.

Now, the Sun suggest Raiola could be willing to scupper any United move for de Ligt before it even begins.

Meanwhile, reports linking Pogba with a return to Juventus have been shot down by Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri.

Pogba left Turin for United in 2016 for £89m, but Allegri has reportedly said he will not entertain the rumours.
