Man United ready to make Paul Pogba the highest-paid player

Manchester United is ready to make midfielder Paul Pogba the highest-paid player for the club.

Pogba’s future at the club has been a subject of speculation since he rejoined them from Juventus and with his agent having said that he saw the future of the player elsewhere, United feels a higher salary will make the Frenchman signed a new deal.

The Mirror reports that United is willing to offer about £400,000-a-week contract this month; a salary they feel won't be matched by any of his suitors owing to the fact that most of them have been hit by the covid crisis.

United wants Pogba's future decided before he reports for duty with France at the start of June with the new deal set to keep him at Old Trafford for another four years.

The reports further claim that United will be willing to cash in on the player this summer if he can’t sign the deal as early as possible with the club not keen to let him leave on a free.

The world cup winner has 12 months left on his current deal with United already in the market for a replacement if Pogba leaves. The English giants have been linked with a move for West Ham's Declan Rice, Leicester's Wilfred Ndidi, and Atletico Madrid's Saul Niguez.
