Paul Pogba 'Wants €600,000-A-Week' To Stay At Manchester United

Paul Pogba 'Wants €600,000-A-Week' To Stay At Manchester United

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is reportedly demanding Manchester United double his wages to a whopping €600,000-a-week for him to stay at the club.

The French midfielder wanted to leave United in the summer transfer window and revealed his desire "to have a new challenge somewhere else" when speaking in Tokyo as part of an Adidas promotional shoot.

Pogba ended up staying at Old Trafford despite his brother repeatedly stressing that his sibling wanted out. He started the season brilliantly with a superb display in the 4-0 win over Chelsea in the opening weekend but injuries and a loss of form have got Pogba thinking about a move away again, as per Tuttosport.

Aware that former side Juventus and dream club Real Madrid remain interested, the Italian outlet say the World Cup winner is asking United to up his wages to a massive £30 million-a-year in order for him to remain.

Pogba's current Manchester United deal has a further two years remaining, with United also able to trigger a one-year extension.

But his request for a healthier pay packet, which would make him the highest-paid Premier League player by some distance, is a clear negotiating tactic going into the January transfer window.

Pogba has again come under criticism from number one fan Graeme Souness following his poor displays, with the Scotsman believing he's setting a bad example in the middle of the pitch.

Souness wrote in his column for The Times: "When I played in midfield, I had one thought: 'I'm going to stop the guy I'm playing against today, then develop my own game from there.'

"In contrast, Pogba's first thought is to show everybody how clever and cute he can be. If that's the example your main man in midfield is setting, you're too easy to play against, and until they fix it, United's back five will be fire-fighting."
