Manchester United have reportedly offered a huge contract to Paul Pogba in order to keep the star midfielder at the club beyond this season as per the report in English outlet The Sun

The 28-year-old signed for the Old Trafford outfit back in 2016 for a whopping £94.5 million from Serie A giants Juventus. The Frenchman started his second spell at his boyhood club brilliantly, winning Europa League and League cup. However, things have gone downhill since and the world cup winner has failed to produce his best consistently enough in the Premier League. 

According to the report, Manchester United have offered £500,000 a week in salary to Paul Pogba in order to persuade him to commit his future at the Old Trafford stadium. If the midfielder agrees to sign the contract then he will become the highest-paid player in the history of the Premier League. However, the Frenchman is yet to respond to this offer. 

The 28-year-old will get guaranteed £400,000 per week which will increase up to £500,000, including bonuses. This is reportedly £100,000 more than what the other European clubs are offering the Frenchman at the moment. 

Has Paul Pogba done enough at Manchester United to get a huge contract? 

Tying down Paul Pogba into a long-term contract will be a very good business for Manchester United. However, the midfielder’s recent performances do not reflect that he deserves a huge pay rise at the Old Trafford stadium. 

Letting their star man leave for free will be a huge blow for the Red Devils hierarchy. However, giving the 28-year-old a huge financial package doesn’t make much sense as he has been suffering a long-term injury in almost every season and has expressed his desire to leave the club on several occasions.

So, cashing in on the Frenchman in this transfer window would have been a perfect scenario for the record Premier League champions. However, it is highly unlikely that any club will pay a transfer fee for Pogba in January who will be available for free in less than six months. 

Therefore, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for Paul Pogba. Keeping the Frenchman at the club will be great for the Old Trafford faithful, however, it might be the right time to accept the divorce for both parties.
