Salah is out of contract at Liverpool in 18 months, with no sign of a breakthrough in talks over a new deal, while United are doing all they can to keep Pogba beyond the end of the season
The Red Devils have offered the midfielder a series of improved contract offers, which Pogba has so far failed to sign, with the France international having frequently hinted at a desire to leave.
United are doing all they can to keep their club-record signing at Old Trafford though, with the Premier League giants having paid £90million for him in the summer of 2016.
While Pogba has at times struggled to impress, he has also proven to be devastatingly good when he performs at the top level.
That was shown on the opening day of this season when he provided four assists as United hammered Leeds.
Since then, he has been ruled out for much of the campaign with a hamstring injury picked up on international duty.
But that has not stopped United from doing everything they can to keep Pogba at the club and The Sun report they have now made him a mammoth contract offer.
It is stated that the Red Devils’ latest offer contains an astonishing wage of £500,000 per week, which would make him the highest-paid player in Premier League history.
United are wary of losing him for nothing in the summer, with the Red Devils refusing to sell him in the winter window.
As a result, they have offered a deal that is worth around £100,000 more than Pogba would expected to get if he moved to a European club.
But there is another angle to consider with United’s offer to Pogba and it concerns Liverpool star Salah.

The Egyptian is entering the final 18 months of his own contract at Anfield and is currently in negotiations with the Reds over a new deal.
It is understood that Salah wants to be made Liverpool’s highest-paid player by demanding a wage of between £300,000 and £400,00 a week.
But the 29-year-old has now been told to hold off on his negotiations with Liverpool to take into account United’s huge offer to Pogba.
Former Arsenal icon Ray Parlour has questioned what Salah’s mindset could be now that the Red Devils are striving to make Pogba the top-flight’s highest-paid player.
