Man United will not be held to ransom over Paul Pogba future

Manchester United is reportedly refusing to be left hostage over Paul Pogba's future as the midfielder approaches the end of his deal at Old Trafford.

The France international's new contract with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side is set to expire in June, and his future in Manchester is still up in the air.

Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Juventus are all said to be interested in signing the World Cup winner, but due to the financial effects of the coronavirus outbreak, all three clubs could be priced out of a summer transfer.

Man United wants Pogba to sign a new contract, but the 20-time English champions are wary of giving in to the Frenchman's agent Mino Raiola's salary demands, according to The Mirror.

According to the paper, the 28-year-agent old's wants a weekly salary of more than £400,000, and the club's board is currently debating if the offer is good value for money.

Pogba, who has six goals and nine assists in 40 appearances for Manchester United this season, is said to be a top priority for head coach Solskjaer.
