Paul Pogba would have been upset if Manchester United had activated a clause in his contract extending his agreement for another year.
Last summer Real Madrid was interested in French, but the Red Devils were stopped and rejected all offers.
But reports in Spain suggest that Madrid will make one last effort to secure the player’s signature this summer.
Pogba’s deal at Old Trafford will last until 2021 but discussions would not necessarily be necessary with the club able to extend his stay for another year.
The relationship between the player, his agent and the club is already strained but if United takes control of Pogba’s future it will only increase tensions, AS reports.
But the Red Devils hope to enter into discussions in which both sides can mutually decide where to move forward.
Pogba showed little desire to stay at Old Trafford despite having become the club’s record less than four years ago.
Madrid and the former Juventus club have both been linked to the World Cup winner.
Raiola has also done its best to help produce a move having previously stated that Italy is Pogba’s “home”.
“Italy is like a second home for him,” he said earlier this season.
While the agent also said he wants his client to be “in a club that I hope he fights for the league and hopefully for the Champions League.”
Pogba has only made two appearances since September with his season ravaged by injury.
Last season he experienced the most fruitful period of his United career after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arrived, but his form retired towards the end of the season.
The recent arrival of Bruno Fernandes has helped to mitigate the blow.
The Portuguese director was signed by Sporting Lisbon and started running at Old Trafford.
