Man Utd stars 'furious at £500,000pw deal offered to wantaway Pogba'

Manchester United stars ‘are FURIOUS with the club’s offer to make Paul Pogba the highest paid player in the Premier League on whopping £500,000 a week’, with some squad members believing eye-watering deal is ‘OUT OF ORDER’

  • Paul Pogba has just months remaining on his current Manchester United deal
  • Pogba, who earns £290,000-per-week, has been offered a £500,000pw deal
  • If the 29-year-old accepted he would be the Premier League’s best-paid player 

Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United remains a cloud over the club with several of his team-mates reportedly left incredulous at his potential mammoth pay rise should he remain at Old Trafford.

Wantaway midfielder Pogba has just months left on his current contract which expires this summer.

According to the Mirror, the 29-year-old has been offered a new deal worth £500,000-per-week to remain at United – which would make him the Premier League’s highest-paid player. The deal starts off with a basic salary of £400,000 with the add-ons taking up half-a-million pounds.

However, they claim that those terms have left members of the Red Devils squad furious – with plenty feeling he is not worthy due to his performances on-the-pitch and non-committal stance over committing his future.

‘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.

If Pogba was to accept the new terms it would see him surpass 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’s structure. He currently earns £290,000-per-week.

Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are among the clubs keen on Pogba but whether they can offer the wages he wants will be decisive, while remaining at United has yet to be ruled out.

Speaking about his future last month while on international duty, the France World Cup winner said: ‘Nothing is decided on my future, nothing is done. I can decide tomorrow, just as I can decide during the transfer window. I want to bounce back and finish the season well.’

Pogba though has been frustrated during his time at United, failing to compete for the titles he had envisaged when re-joining the club from Juventus for £89m in 2016.

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.’

Pogba is one of five players out of contract with United this summer. Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Edinson Cavani are all preparing to join new clubs while goalkeeper Lee Grant could be offered a coaching role.
