As the future of Old Trafford remains uncertain, Paul Pogba shuts down new contract claims.
Paul Pogba’s Manchester United contract is coming to an end in the next six months.
Paul Pogba’s representatives have dismissed reports that the France midfielder has agreed to a new contract with Manchester United.
With less than six months until he becomes a free agent, reports suggest United has offered Pogba a massive contract extension.
According to the Sun, United attempted to entice Pogba to stay at Old Trafford by offering him a staggering £500,000 weekly wage.
He would be the highest-paid player in Premier League history, but he has yet to commit his future to the club.
Pogba has been heavily linked with European heavyweights, particularly Real Madrid and PSG, during his second spell with the Red Devils.
And, as of this month, he is free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign suitors, casting further doubt on his United status.
His team, on the other hand, has denied that he is turning down a contract offer because there isn’t one.
A spokesman close to Pogba recently confirmed there are no new terms for the 28-year-old to sign.
“To clarify media reports, Paul has not received a new contract offer in recent months,” it said.
“Paul is completely focused on his injury recovery and hopes to rejoin the team as soon as possible.”
Pogba has yet to play under Ralf Rangnick after suffering a groin injury while on international duty with France in November.
His prolonged absence has fueled transfer rumors, but Rangnick gave an update on his chances of returning on Friday.
“As far as I know, I was told a week ago that it would be at least another four or five weeks before he was fit to train again,” he said.
“I saw him this morning before the workout, in the locker room, and I’m hoping he’ll be back as soon as possible.”
But, when it comes to Pogba’s return, the German coach has urged patience and refused to give a specific time frame.
“Right now, he’s not in the training group,” Rangnick continued, “and even if he returned in two, three, or four weeks, it’ll take some time.”
“It’s one thing to be in shape for training, but he also needs to be in shape for the match and competition in the Premier League or the Champions League.”
