Transfer Rumours

Ed Woodward ready to let £270,000-a-week superstar leave for free

Manchester United won’t offer their superstar midfielder Paul Pogba a “Sanchez-style” salary in order to extend the Frenchman’s stay at Old Trafford, reports ESPN correspondent Rob Dawson.

Chatters around Paul Pogba’s future at Manchester United has rekindled ever since the World Cup-winning midfielder expressed his desire to play for La Liga giants Real Madrid.

Speaking to the French media while on the national duty Pogba clarified:

 “Of course, every footballer would love to play for Real Madrid and would dream about that. It’s a dream of mine, so why not one day?”

Sensing the danger of losing the midfield maestro for free next summer, Manchester United triggered Pogba’s one-year optional extension at the ‘Theatre of Dreams’.

As the things stand, Pogba will be at Manchester United until June 2022.

According to ESPN, Man United are interested in extending Pogba’s contract on a long-term basis. However, they won’t pay a serious amount of money to do that.

It is believed that Pogba’s new contract would see him earn around £270,000 per week (excluding bonuses), which is nowhere near Alexis Sanchez’s salary of £400,000-a-week.

United obviously want to keep Pogba, but don’t want to destroy their wage structure yet again.

They are so strict on their stance this time that they won’t think twice before offloading Pogba on a reasonable price in the next summer transfer window.

Real Madrid, Juventus, and Paris Saint-Germain are expected to be Pogba’s keenest admirers for now.

    Good, the sooner the virus leaves the better, here you have a player that decides in his own mind whether he’s going to play well or poorly (just to suit his mood) he is also disruptive, forms little gangs, and is a youtuber…. please get rid of him, lets get a settled squad

    Man Utd should have got rid of Pogba when he had a good value in the transfer market. Capable of some great things but hasn’t done it at Old Trafford. A disruptive influence on the atmosphere at the club, when nobody knows what he wants from week to week. Doesn’t track back and gives the ball away too often in dangerous areas. Fred has nowhere near his ability but gives everything and is a team player.
