Manchester United is set to offer Paul Pogba the option of becoming the highest-paid player in the Premier League as they look to tie the Frenchman down.
Pogba’s current deal is worth £300,000/week and it has entered the final year at Old Trafford. His club is keen to prevent him going into the new season with his future still uncertain. According to reports from England, an incredible new £400,000/week contract over the next five years is being offered to the midfielder to convince him to stay in Manchester.
The 28-year-old French international commented last week mentioning his focus is on his national duty.
‘I have one year left on my contract, everyone knows that,’ Pogba said in a press conference. ‘There have been no concrete proposals for extensions. I’m still in Manchester.
‘After the season there was the vacation, so I didn’t sit down with the managers and coach. I’m focused on the Euro.’
Paris Saint-Germain is rumoured to be interested in the player but leaving on a free transfer at the end of the deal is an ideal situation for Pogba as this means he would be in a position to demand a massive signing on fee alongside huge wages from his next club. To keep him in England, United would have to offer a lucrative deal and reports suggest that they will do their best to retain the midfielder’s services to the club.
Pogba made 26 appearances in the 2020/21 Premier League season and scored 3 goals and recorded 3 assists for Manchester United.
