EPL: Man Utd have not offered me contract to become highest-paid player – Pogba

Manchester United’s Paul Pogba has debunked speculations that the club offered a mouthwatering £500,000-a-week contract to remain at the club.

Pogba is out of contract in the summer, but he can hold talks with foreign clubs over a Bosman from January onwards.

The Frenchman is widely expected to leave Old Trafford at the end of this season, with Real Madrid, PSG and Juventus all interested in signing him.

But The Sun reported this week that United bosses had made one final attempt to convince Pogba to stay and were prepared to make him the highest-paid player in the Premier League.

The World Cup winner, who is currently sidelined, was rumoured to have been offered a base salary of £400,000-a-week with bonuses and add-ons adding on another £100,000-a-week – a total package worth significantly more than he can earn elsewhere.

But now a spokesman for Pogba has denied the claims of a new contract offer and insists there have been no new talks with the club since negotiations broke down months ago.

In a statement to the Daily Mail, a spokesman for Pogba said: “To clarify media reports, Paul has not been offered a new contract in recent months.

“Paul is fully focused on his recovery from injury with the aim of helping the team as soon as possible.”

Pogba, who has been out of action since the last international break in November with a thigh injury, has already left United on a free transfer once in his career and looks increasingly likely to do so again in the summer.
