Man Utd planning to offer huge pay rise to world-cup winning midfielder

Manchester United are reportedly planning to handing Paul Pogba a lucrative new deal in a bid to keep him on the books at Old Trafford.

The player’s agent Mino Raiola suggested that the midfielder’s time at Old Trafford was over last year, although he has since backtracked on those comments.

However, Paul Pogba’s contract situation at Old Trafford stays unchanged; he is following to become a free agent in 2022, and Serie A champions, Juventus continue to be rumoured with a swoop for their ex-player in the upcoming transfer window.

As a result, The Mirror rumours that Ed Woodward is planning whether to offer Pogba a mammoth new contract at the end of the campaign or listen to offers for him this summer.

The report adds that allowing the 28-year-old midfielder set to run down his deal is simply not an option for the team, although they have accepted that if Paul Pogba is sold this summer, they will not garner anything close to the £89m they paid for him back in 2016.

France international midfielder has found back of the net five times and assisted four more across all competitions for the Red Devils this campaign, and he boasts a total of 37 goals and 37 assists in 195 games since 2016.
