Manchester United are ready to risk the wrath of their dressing room by handing Paul Pogba an eye-watering £500,000-per-week deal that would make him the Red Devils’ highest earner
Pogba’s performances at Old Trafford have been scrutinised in recent weeks, and with his contract set to expire in the summer, reports suggested he could be leaving. However, according to the Mirror, United have offered the Frenchman a whopping £500,000-per-week deal.
The World Cup winner hasn’t yet committed to the offer that would see him earn a base salary of £400,000, with the other £100,000 coming in bonuses. And a source has said how the squad could revolt as a result of the offer.
The source said: “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.”
Should Pogba put pen to paper on the deal he would become United’s highest-paid player. That current mantle belongs to Cristiano Ronaldo, who takes home £450,000.
Pogba returned to United, after initially leaving the club on a free in 2012, for a then-record £94.5million fee.
The Frenchman had become one of the planet’s hottest properties during his brief stint in the Serie A with Juventus, but he has failed to live up to that hype at Old Trafford. Pogba has found game time difficult to come by under Ralf Rangnick.
Fans even vandalised United’s training ground at Carrington with ‘Pogba Out’ in 2019.
PSG appear to be frontrunners – and a move to France would be his first professional stint in his home nation.
