With contract demands, Manchester United risk alienating Paul Pogba and Mino Raiola.
Manchester United is yet to agree on a new contract for Paul Pogba.
According to rumours, Manchester United may unwittingly irritate Paul Pogba and his agency by demanding that the midfielder make a decision on his future within the next few weeks.
By failing to sign Pogba to a new contract, the Red Devils risk losing him for nothing.
His present contract will expire at the conclusion of the season, and he will be eligible to agree a free move to a foreign team in principle from January.
Pogba joined United in 2016 for a then-record £89 million fee. In a sensational transfer, the 28-year-old returned from Juventus.
He has largely done admirably at Old Trafford and has had a strong start to the season. He has seven assists in seven Premier League appearances, demonstrating that he is undeterred by speculation about his future.
However, negotiations for a new agreement might quickly heat up.
It’s been widely reported that United wants Pogba to make a decision about his future at Old Trafford as soon as possible.
However, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, it is not Pogba’s or his agent Mino Raiola’s “style” to make decisions within specific time constraints.
“If they (United) say Pogba has to sign in the next 3 to 4 weeks, it is not in Pogba’s style to decide like this…or in Raiola’s,” Romano remarked on the United Stand YouTube channel.
“I’m sure they’ll need some time before Pogba makes a decision.”
Pogba was offered a new deal by United in August, according to The Athletic, which included a significant wage increase.
Old Trafford officials were reportedly willing to pay him up to £400,000 per week, making him the club’s highest-paid player at the time.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s rumoured £500,000 per week salary has since surpassed it. On transfer deadline day, United finalized the spectacular return of the great forward.
Pogba is thought to earn roughly £290,000 per year and is yet to answer to United’s offer.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that if they want to maintain their finest players, including Pogba, they must improve their performances and contend for silverware.
“It’s now up to us to get results and prove to ourselves that we can win trophies,” Solskjaer stated.
