Pogba due staggering Man Utd loyalty bonus

Paul Pogba is owed a head-spinning loyalty bonus by Manchester United.

The Sun says he is in line for a £3.78million "loyalty" bonus from Manchester United just three days after declaring he needs a new challenge.

The France World Cup winner, 26, made it clear on a promotional tour of Tokyo he wants to leave United this summer.

The £89m man, who is after a move to Real Madrid where he could play under his hero Zinedine Zidane, gets a United bonus every term and his next one is due at the end of the month.

The figures revealed in Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football two years ago, also suggested his latest loyalty payment will have gone up by more than £300,000 on the one he received last season — which was £3.46m.

The bonus scheme was a way to top up his basic wages which were revealed at the time to be around £165,000-a-week — less than some of his team-mates.
