The Frenchman’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season, and the Red Devils are rushing to keep hold of their prized asset.
We exclusively disclosed earlier this season that United had tabled a basic offer of £400k each week, plus an additional £100k in bonuses.
The tabled deal, according to the Mirror, has ruffled some feathers within the dressing room.
According to reports, the offer has enraged several of his teammates, who believe he does not deserve to be among the league’s top earners.
Pogba is also said to be “unworthy” of such a raise because he “plays infrequently,” according to reports.
“Some of the players think it’s out of order that he might be getting twice as much as they are when he seldom starts a game and speaks about leaving all the time,” the person reportedly stated.
Some players are irritated by their teammate’s readiness to criticize the club while also discussing a possible departure.
According to the Mirror, if Pogba accepts the large offer and stays, there could be a “mutiny” in the dressing room.
PSG, Real Madrid, and his previous club Juventus are all interested in signing him, with the former considered the favorites.
Should Pogba leave United, he will be able to fetch a large signing-on fee from his new club, albeit he will likely not be able to earn the same weekly income elsewhere.
He’s made a total of 25 appearances this season, starting only 14 of United’s 31 Premier League games.
This season, the gifted star has only scored once, but he has nine assists.
Pogba is reportedly “coming closer” to joining PSG, according to reports in France.
They further claim that he has met with sporting director Leonardo and has become a “priority” for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
According to reports, he would be pleased to relocate to Paris, and his family would welcome his homecoming.
