He reportedly rejected a mammoth new offer from the Red Devils in the summer.
One club that Raiola has ruled out for definite is German giants Bayern Munich.
Pogba’s agent has revealed that Bayern cannot afford to pay Pogba’s mammoth wage demands.
Raiola has previously hinted that Pogba could join a new team upon the expiry of his United contract.
Rangnick however remains firm in his stance that he will not be trying to convince Pogba to stay at the club if he wants to leave.
He’s free to begin negotiations with overseas clubs from January 1 regarding a pre-contract agreement.
Rangnick said: “I wouldn’t say he is not worth keeping but players need to want to stay and play for the club,” said the German coach.
“If a player doesn’t want to play for a club like Manchester United, even in the long term, I don’t think it makes sense to convince him to change his mind.
“This is such a massive club, with fantastic support, I don’t think anyone at the club should try to convince a player to stay.
“Let’s have him come back, get fully fit and training with the team, then we will see where we stand.”
Pogba has spent the last fee weeks in Dubai working towards a return to full fitness following a thigh injury that he picked up while on international duty.
He’s missed the last seven games with the injury but has been keeping fans up to date with his progress on social media.
Rangick though has now ordered the midfielder back to Carrington so the pair can meet.
The German added: “I have to get to know him. I have to speak to him. It is about being fully physically fit. The way we want to play is high intensity.
“It will take some time for him to get fully fit. Once he is fully fit, I see him as a midfielder rather than a striker or a left winger.
“The only thing of interest to me is how do we get him fully fit.
“He can be an important player, I am fully aware of that. But that is true for all the players. I am not only the coach of Paul Pogba. I am also the coach of all the other players.”
