Manchester United stars ‘are FURIOUS the club offers Paul Pogba a whopping £500,000 a week, the highest-paid player in the Premier League.
Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United is still a question mark, with several of his teammates reportedly skeptical of his possible wage boost if he stays at the club.
Pogba’s current contract, which expires this summer, has only a few months left on it.
According to the Mirror, the 29-year-old has been given a new contract for £500,000 a week to stay at United, making him the highest-paid player in the Premier League.
The arrangement starts with a £400,000 basic pay, with add-ons totaling half a million pounds.
However, they claim that those terms have left Manchester United stars furious – with plenty feeling he is not worthy due to his performances on the pitch and non-committal stance over committing his future.
‘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,’ a source told the Mirror.
If Pogba was to accept the new terms it would see him surpass Cristiano Ronaldo (£450,000-per-week), David de Gea (£375,000-per-week), Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane (both £300,000-per-week) in the club’s wage’s structure. He currently earns £290,000-per-week.
PSG and Juventus are among the clubs interested in Pogba, but whether they can provide him the salary he wants will be the deciding factor, although staying at United is not ruled out.
‘Nothing is determined on my future, nothing is done,’ the World Cup winner from France stated last month while on international duty. I have the option to make a decision tomorrow, just like I did during the transfer window. ‘I want to get back on track and have a strong finish to the season.’
Pogba, on the other hand, has been dissatisfied with his time at United, having failed to compete for the trophies he expected when he returned from Juventus for £89 million in 2016.
He has struggled to hide his disappointment at United’s results and told French TV programme Telefoot: ‘The season is not over yet, but almost because we don’t have any more titles to play for.
