Man United ready to agree £83.2million contract with OT star – Report

Blaise Matuidi and Paul Pogba for France

Manchester United have adequately strengthened their squad in the summer transfer window and more importantly, they have not sold out any key player.

However, record signing, Paul Pogba, will be out of contract next year and is heavily linked with a move away from the Old Trafford outfit.

Transfer: Move close – Man United reach agreement to secure £17million attacking midfielder’s exit

As per the latest reports going on in the media, the Red Devils are prepared to extend the French international’s stay at the club by agreeing mammoth new deal with him.

According to The Athletic, Man Utd are ready to agree a contract that will make the midfielder earn £400,000-a-week, £83.2million in the next four years (until 2025).

The deal on the table will make the 28-year-old World Cup winning star the highest paid player in the history of the club. However, so far, he has not accepted the offer. Reports have indicated that PSG are willing to sign him for free next summer by handing him a salary worth £510,000-a-week (The Independent).

Pogba’s quality is world known and he has always performed brilliantly for France. However, for Man Utd, his performances have been inconsistent.

In the opening league game of the new campaign, the Les Bleus star provided four assists to help Ole’s men earn all three points against Leeds United. If he remains consistent then United would surely have a great chance of ending their title drought.

In your view, does Paul Pogba really deserve to get a £83.2million contract?


  1. No, Pogba should go. He does have ability but since winning the world cup, his ego, his social media standing and his agents greed have all taken priority over consistent performances. He turns on the skill in a few big games and when he wants to move or get a pay rise. His agent will try to boost his salary by “offering” him to rivals such as city or liverpool. If he gets a huge deal, expect him to put in about 8 great games per year and be injured which will require a “specialist” in the USA followed by lots of instagram and twitter posts with celebrities. Part exchange him for Mbappe or swap him for Ronaldo, he always performs 100%

  2. Paul Pogba is a great player and a brilliant midfielder, I will support his stay Man Utd for more years. If Man Utd has the money to pay him, please they should and keep him.

  3. How are the team sure he’ll perform brilliantly after increasing his contract?? They should go for a swap with a sensational player who is cheaper than he is. Ok take a look on man city they’re all doing good with lower cost signings I think its wise to let him go if he wants to!!
    Don’t force…

  4. Pogba is talented but he is a mercenary, in an environment of greed. he earns a life times wages every week but it is not enough for him. He believes his salary should reflect his ability which he feels is £500,000 per week. If his work rate and consistency was even 25% of Bruno Fernandes or Messi or Ronaldo, I’d have no problem with Pogba earning that money but Pogbas loyalty lies with Pogba and no team, no sport or anyone else.

    Pogba will sign for anyone, even Man Utd if they pay him an obscene amount of money, if not he is ready to walk away next year for nothing, sell him before he gets the chance.

    The sport is full of mercenaries now, with agents and tricks designed to extract the most money for the least work. You only have to look at managers…. no names mentioned but, there is a manager who goes to a new team and if he is not given £250 million to buy a team he will find a scapegoat and blame everything on that player (say, Luke Shaw or Dele Alli 🙂 ) and cause so much disharmony in the dressing room that he is sacked with a multi million pound pay off… imagine if every time we were sacked from our jobs we got a huge payment… we’d all be trying to get the sack… I’m watching Roma at the moment to see who becomes the scapegoat and how long before the big pay off.
