Man Utd ready to hand Paul Pogba £104m new contract with star hinting he will agree deal

4 mins read

Paul Pogba is likely to remain a Manchester United player for the foreseeable future, with the midfielder hinting he will sign a new improved contract this summer, according to reports. There has been some uncertainty surrounding Pogba, who is about to enter the final 12 months of his current deal, but United are ready to offer him eye-popping new terms.

Pogba made 42 appearances across all competitions last season, contributing six goals and six assists for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

After a slow start to the campaign, the 28-year-old’s role grew in importance as the season wore on and he remains a key player for Solskjaer.

He is currently on international duty, playing for France at Euro 2020, but discussions with his agent Mino Raiola have been ongoing.

Pogba revealed last week that United had not yet contacted him personally over a new contract but The Sun says the club are willing to offer him a package worth £400,000 a week over the next five years – making it worth a staggering total of £104million.

That is a significant increase on his current £290,000-a-week salary and would eclipse the £375,000 per week which United’s top earner David de Gea takes home.

Raiola has previously stated that Pogba is unhappy at Old Trafford and hinted he is looking for the exit, but the report says he is expected to agree to the terms.

While no agreement has been reached yet, it is understood to be ‘not far away, and the early noises between both camps have been positive.’

That suggests there have been some major developments over the weekend, because Pogba himself said nothing had been discussed on Thursday.

“I have one year left on my contract, everybody knows it. I know that the club is … well there has not been yet a concrete offer,” he said at a press conference ahead of France’s 1-1 draw with Hungary.

“It has not been done. We finished the season with the Europa League then we went on holidays. So, I didn’t sit down with Ed Woodward and the manager.

“We haven’t spoken and of course, I am still at Manchester United.”

Pogba is United’s record signing. He cost £89m to sign from Juventus in 2016 – more than the £80m the club paid Leicester City for Harry Maguire two years ago.

He has been in-form for France at the Euros so far, catching the eye in their 1-0 win over Germany.

France are top of Group F, with four points, going into their final match against Portugal on Wednesday.
