[Sport] Paul Pogba ‘demanding £500k-a-week Manchester United deal’


Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has reportedly informed Manchester United that the midfielder expects to pocket £500k per week to stay at Old Trafford for next season.

The World Cup-winning Frenchman now has less than 18 months left to run on his existing Man United deal, and he has been strongly linked with a move back to Juventus following Raiola’s comments on his future last year.

While Pogba has now established himself as an important player in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s ranks, his future remains shrouded in uncertainty, and United will supposedly have to cough up the big bucks to keep him around.

According to the Daily Star, Pogba is demanding a weekly wage of £500k – close to £800k with image rights – from United or any potential suitors, including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

However, the report adds that PSG would likely be the only club financially capable of forking out such a mammoth salary, so Pogba may elect to run down his existing United deal if his demands are not met in Manchester.

Pogba has scored five goals and set up six more across all tournaments this season, and he has claimed two assists in United’s last two Premier League matches.
