Man Utd willing to pay Pogba £500,000-A-WEEK to stay

Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward is willing to hand Paul Pogba a new £500,000-A-WEEK contract to convince him to stay.

The Daily Mail says Real Madrid and Juventus have an interest in him, but United are determined to keep their record signing next season unless they receive an offer well in excess of the £89million they paid Juve in 2016.

They are set to address the issue by offering Pogba a pay rise that will up his current £290,000-a-week pay to nearer the £500,000 being picked up by United's top earner Alexis Sanchez. Pogba has two years left on his deal, which United have the option to extend by 12 months.

Real Madrid are believed to have made an opening offer of £90m but know that it will take considerably more than that to test United's resolve.

Juventus also want to sign Pogba, 26, three years after his then world-record move from the Italian club, but it's understood he would prefer Spain.
