Man Utd to offer Pogba £500,000-a-week deal to snub Real Madrid move
Manchester United are willing to offer Paul Pogba a stunning £500,000-a-week contract, to stop him from moving to Real Madrid this summer, SportsMail reports.
Pogba admitted his intention to leave, after saying “it could be time for a new challenge” last weekend.
Real Madrid and Juventus have shown an interest in him, but United are determined to keep their record signing next season.
Senior officials at Old Trafford, are also set to address the issue by offering Pogba a pay rise, that will up his current £290,000-a-week pay to nearer the £500,000 being picked up by United’s top earner Alexis Sanchez.
Pogba has two years left on his deal, which United have the option to extend by 12 months.
Real Madrid are believed to have made an opening offer of £90m, but know that it will take considerably more than that to test United’s resolve.
