Manchester United’s Paul Pogba reportedly ready to sign new contract, on one major condition


Paul Pogba subject to PSG interest

The return of Paul Pogba to Manchester United in the summer of 2016 for a club-record fee was greeted with much fanfare, but it is fair to say that the Frenchman has struggled to live up the hype in the North West.

Making 215 appearances for the Red Devils, the Frenchman has contributed 38 goals and 49 assists, which seems reasonable for a central midfielder. However, his top-level performances have been few and far between, with this season seeing him pushed out to the left-hand side in favour of a central pairing of Scott McTominay and Fred.

As such, and with one year left on his current deal in the North-West, PSG were thought to be interested in signing the Frenchman, as they assemble their version of the Galacticos.

However, in the months since, Pogba has seemingly had a change of heart, with The Athletic reporting that he was leaning towards staying at Old Trafford.

Pogba open to staying, on one condition

Now, as per French outlet L’Equipe, Pogba is openly stating his desire to stay at the club which he has spent the majority of both his youth and senior career.

However, this comes on the condition that he, or rather his entourage wish him to be, the most highly-paid player in Premier League history. Given that he shares a dressing room with Cristiano Ronaldo, this seems a bridge too far, but will Manchester United cross it?
