Pogba Contract Offer Angers Man Utd Players


Several Manchester United players are reportedly unhappy that the club has offered Paul Pogba a bumper new contract, which would make him the highest-paid player in the Premier League.

The 29-year-old’s current deal at Old Trafford is set to expire in June, and he is now free to negotiate pre-contract agreements with foreign clubs.

According to the Daily Mirror, United has offered Pogba a new contract with wages worth around £400,000 per week, plus additional bonuses that could take the deal to around £500,000 per week.

However, the report added that this offer has angered a number of players in the United dressing room, as they do not believe the Frenchman deserves a pay rise.

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo is currently the highest earner at United, pocketing around £450,000 per week, while the likes of Bruno Fernandes and captain Harry Maguire are earning significantly less than £300,000 per week.

Pogba is understood to have held talks with Paris Saint-Germain chief, Leonardo over a potential summer move to the French capital, while Real Madrid and former club Juventus have also been linked with the midfielder.
