'Why Pogba & Mkhitaryan Are Struggling At Man Utd'

Manchester United's new signings Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have not had the start they would have hoped for in their Old Trafford careers, but their agent believes he knows why they have been struggling.

Pogba was signed by the Red Devils from Juventus for a world record transfer fee of £89 million (R1.6 billion), while Mkhitaryan was purchased from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund.

The duo's agent, Mino Raiola, has admitted the Frenchman has not been at his best, but is confident the player will soon turn his fortunes around.  

"It's true Pogba is not playing his best yet, he is taking time to adjust but people don't always see the bigger picture," he said, according to the Daily Mail.

"He will dominate for 10 years. He is United's lost son."

The super-agent also feels Armenia captain Mkhitaryan will get back to his best once fully fit.

"Mkhi was the best player in the German league the last two seasons," Raiola added.

"He has a strong mentality and will be an asset once fully fit.

"Sometimes it is better to lose because you realise you are not what you thought. I still think United will win the league, though, as they now have the quality."
