STUNNER! Pogba wants £800,000-A-WEEK to stay with Man Utd

Paul Pogba is demanding incredible money to re-sign with Manchester United.

The Daily Star says Pogba is demanding a whopping £500,000-per week to sign a new deal at Manchester United.

The Frenchman's agent Mino Raiola has told the Reds that is the sum it will take to persuade him to extend his stay beyond June 2022.

And Pogba will want the same massive salary, which would be the highest in United history, should he leave Old Trafford either this summer or next for one of their European rivals.

Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have also been informed by Raiola of the cost of them securing his client's signature.

Add on lucrative image rights to that basic wage - and the 2018 World Cup winner would be netting close to £800,000 every seven days.

Pogba, 28, knows his next move and contract is likely to be the last major one of his career, which began at United before he was sold to Juventus and then re-signed by the Premier League club in 2016.
