When Henrikh Mkhitaryan was trying to convince Borussia Dortmund to let him leave for Manchester United, there was talk in the German media of Raiola upturning furniture as he made clear to BVB that the transfer had to happen.Then, after the Armenian failed to show his best form often enough at Old Trafford, Raiola making sure the player got the most out of his exit only served to hold up the Alexis Sanchez swap.With talk around the future of Paul Pogba, and a potential desire for a Real Madrid move, Marca have obviously picked up on the case.Jose Felix Diaz, their editor in chief, has published a column this weekend which is likely to be better informed than most… at least when it comes to the Spanish end of the story.He claims that Raiola ‘already knows’ what Pogba wants to do… and that’s leave Manchester United and sign for Real Madrid.Raiola himself has held a similar opinion for a while and has been trying to find a new destination.The problem for Madrid interest is that Manchester United aren’t so keen and it would therefore take a huge amount of money, perhaps bigger than Real Madrid would be prepared to pay for the player.Should Raiola choose to attack the furniture at Manchester United’s offices, it’s probably not going to go down too well.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

SOMERTON, Ariz. (Feb. 6-7) – R.C. Whitwell and Hunter Marriott proved the fastest in big IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified fields at Cocopah Speedway’s Winter Nationals opening weekend. Whitwell raced from 12th starting to win Friday’s main event, which drew 65 entries. Marriott scored the Saturday checkers, which had 54 entries. Both Modified features paid $1,000 to win; Marriott was already on the ballot for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. In all, drivers from 18 states and Canada vied at the fourth annual event. Manny Baldiviez and Andrew Altenburg were IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winners, Scott Shaw and Leonard Manos topped IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock mains and Timmy Reese and Sean Callens topped Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod features. Whitwell caught Marriott for the lead with four circuits left in the opening night 25-lapper. Marriott, Scott Drake, 12th starting Brian Schultz and David Murray Jr. completed the top five.“There was no lapped traffic and the cautions helped me because they bunched the field back up,” Whitwell said. “There was a lot of pretty good competition there. It definitely gives you a really good feeling to be able to run with so many of the top IMCA guys.” The Saturday feature ran caution-free. Marriott took the green from outside row one and beat pole starter Christy Barnett to the checkers. Tim Ward, Marlyn Seidler and the 14th starting Whitwell were next across the stripe.Baldiviez started outside row one and bested Altenburg and seventh starting Jimmy Davy in the race to Friday’s Stock Car checkers. Altenburg drew the pole and won on Saturday, ahead of Baldiviez and Jon Courchaine. Pole starter Shaw, seventh starting Jason Beshears and Craig Ebers ran 1-2-3 in the Hobby Stock opener.Manos was chased across the Saturday stripe by Shaw and Beshears.Reese outran sixth starting Chris Toth and James Dupre for top SportMod honors on Friday.
