With Paul Pogba’s contract with Manchester United expiring in the next couple of months, the midfielder’s future at the club is hanging on the balance.
Pogba is reported to be willing to make a move away from Old Trafford to seek a different challenge, but reports from the Mirror confirms that the 29-year-old has been offered a deal worth £500,000-per-week to remain at the club – a deal which would make him the highest earner in the Premier League.
However, it is believed that members of the United squad are furious about the offer, and the feeling is that the midfielder has not done enough – both on and off the pitch to deserve such an offer.
‘Some of the players think it’s out of order he could be getting twice as much as they’re when he hardly starts a game and talks about leaving all the time,’ a source told the Mirror.
Pogba would overtake Cristiano Ronaldo (£450,000 per week), David de Gea (£375,000 per week), Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane (both £300,000 per week) in the club’s wage structure if he accepts the new terms. He earns £290,000 each week at the moment.
Pogba has endured a torrid time at Manchester United and has been linked to a move away to PSG and Juventus and it looks likely he will cut his losses and make a move.
He has struggled to hide his disappointment at United’s results and told French TV programme Telefoot: ‘The season is not over yet, but almost because we don’t have any more titles to play for.
‘I want to win titles, to play for something and this year and the last few years we haven’t won a title. It’s sad.
‘Totally [playing for France is a breath of fresh air]. That’s the truth. There were difficult moments at United and I needed this break to regain my energy and confidence.
‘Sometimes when I wasn’t playing or the results weren’t good, coming here, it gives a boost, a breath of air that also helps me to come back well to my club.’
