A spokesman for Paul Pogba has dismissed rumors that he has been offered £ 500,000 a week to renew his contract with Manchester United.
Pogba has entered the final six months of his current contract at Old Trafford and is considering all his options, including the possibility of writing an extension somewhere later.
Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid are among Pogba’s suitors, and with a free transfer that looks increasingly likely, The Sun recently claimed that United had offered the Frenchman a huge salary of £ 500,000 a week to convince him to stay. .
It has always felt like a ridiculous statement, and unsurprisingly, Pogba’s camp has shot it down.
“To clarify media reports, Paul has not been offered a new contract in recent months,” a spokesman told the Daily Mail. “Paul is fully focused on his recovery from injury with the aim of helping the team as soon as possible.”
United are ready to keep Pogba under the transfer window in January in the hope of convincing him to stay out of the current campaign.
Due to his outgoing deal, United know Pogba would not generate a significant fee this month and the belief is that they would be better off keeping him as they aim to return to the top four and then manage his future when it is time. .
It’s a similar story for midfielder Jesse Lingard, who hopes to leave this month but is expected to leave for free this summer, 12 months after rejecting the chance to make the best of £ 20m.
Edinson Cavani’s deal goes out during the summer as well. A move to Barcelona has been proposed, but interim manager Ralf Rangnick has no desire to differentiate himself from the Uruguayan veteran at this point in the season.
