Man United is preparing a colossal ‘offer’ for Paul Pogba in the Premier League.
Manchester United’s contract with Paul Pogba expires in six months.
Paul Pogba is said to have been offered a new £500,000-per-week bumper contract by Manchester United this week in a renewed attempt to keep his services at the club – a move that would make him the highest-paid player in Premier League history.
Pogba, 28, left Juventus on a free transfer four years ago after disagreements with Sir Alex Ferguson over first-team opportunities. He joined United for £89 million in 2016.
Since his return to United, the midfielder has had a mixed record, winning a Europa League winner’s medal and a League Cup during his time at Old Trafford.
Pogba’s career has reached a fork in the road, with no Premier League title and no Champions League success for the Red Devils.
With only six months left on his current contract, he can sign pre-contract agreements with any team that isn’t based in England, which could alert PSG and Real Madrid to his availability.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, is said to be uninterested, while reports claim Pogba has been offered the chance to become the highest-paid player in English football history, with United making a lucrative offer to keep him.
According to the report, despite the incentives offered by United, the midfielder has yet to decide whether or not to sign the proposed contract.
Sources believe he will leave in order to win more trophies, as he has only two in his five years at Old Trafford.
United’s reported offer for Pogba is certainly one to consider, as it is reportedly £100,000-per-week more than any other potential suitor.
However, with other clubs able to offer him a massive signing-on fee rather than paying United a fee, a final decision to leave United remains a distinct possibility.
According to reports, agent Mino Raiola has offered his services to clubs all over Europe.
A plethora of opportunities may now present themselves to the World Cup-winning French midfielder, and he may decide to wait for more offers before making a final decision on his future.
Pogba’s offer of £500,000 per week would put him ahead of United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, who earns £485,000 per week and is the highest-paid player in the Premier League.
