Positive talks held: Manchester United ready to make star the highest paid player in the Premier League

Manchester United could reportedly be set to tie Paul Pogba down to a huge new contract worth as much as £400,000 a week.

The France international’s name often seems to make the headlines for the wrong reasons, but his improved form for Man Utd last season could now be set to see him commit his future to the club.

It could even land him a huge pay rise, with positive noises supposedly coming from Pogba’s camp and from United’s end about handing him a new deal to make him the highest paid player in the Premier League, according to the Sun.

Pogba already earns around £290,000 a week, according to the report, and many United fans will be questioning if he’s even been worth that amount.

Some will certainly question the logic of the Red Devils bumping up his pay even more, as Bruno Fernandes has quickly come in and out-shone the 28-year-old with his performances in midfield.

Of course, on his day Pogba is a world class performer and United won’t want to risk losing him on the cheap this summer, or even on a free transfer in a year’s time.

It might not be a bad idea to tie Pogba down for at least a bit longer, with the club then having the option to sell for big money in the near future if they decide that’s the best thing to do.

  1. No, no, no. Man Utd shouldn’t be afraid of pogba, 400 bucks for what exactly? If he says he does not want the amount given to him please have the temerity to let him go and get a new player who will set the team rolling in lieu of giving P.Pogba 400k please. I am totally in disagreement of this!

  2. Why that amount? He is not worth it.. WE COULD SETTLE FOR THREE FIFTY THOUSAND THOUSAND A WEEK. OR LEAVE HIM. MANY ARE WAITING TO SHOW SKILLS AND CHARACTER.

  3. Another big mistake of Man U. Whats next??
    How are you going to deal with other better players if you give this (I play whenever I feel like it) Player this kind of money. And if he set the world on fire for the last 3 years you have a point but that did not happen and will not happen.Didn;t Man U learn nothing from the sanzes fase

  4. That is madness am not in support of that 400k per week, man u can’t u learn from satchel.
