Paul Pogba offered staggering contract in Saudi Arabia, Juventus will save millions if he agrees to move

Paul Pogba offered staggering contract in Saudi Arabia, Juventus will save millions if he agrees to move

He's the latest name to be linked with a move to Saudi Arabia.

Paul Pogba has been offered a stunning contract in the Saudi Pro League that will save Juventus millions if he agrees to the move.

Pogba, 30, left Manchester United last summer to return to Juventus on a free transfer – six years after first leaving to Turin the club to rejoin the Premier League side.

But his return to Italy hasn't gone to plan, with his first season back in Serie A heavily disrupted by a series of injuries that limited him to just 10 appearances last term.

Pogba had to undergo meniscus surgery in September which forced him to miss the majority of the campaign, including the World Cup in Qatar.

He returned to action in March but then suffered another muscle injury while practising free-kicks in training, which kept him out for a number of weeks.

After making another return in May, Pogba then suffered a thigh injury just 25 minutes into his first start for Juventus in his second spell at the club.

To make matters worse for Pogba, he also experienced difficulties away from the pitch – with the midfielder the target of an alleged blackmail plot involving his brother.

Juventus may look to cut ties with the France international this summer, with the midfielder set to receive a huge contract offer from Saudi Arabia.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claim Pogba has been offered a huge three-year deal worth €100m (£85m) plus add-ons by Saudi Pro League side Al Ahli, who recently signed former Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino.

While a formal contract offer is yet to be made, it has been 'verbally illustrated' to Pogba's agent Rafaella Pimenta.

Pogba is said to not yet be 'convinced' by the move and will wait to make a final decision, with the midfielder prepared to remain with Juventus.

But the Italian club may seek to sell Pogba, with the Daily Mail claiming they could save as much as £26.9m on their wage bill if they offload the player, who still has three years left on his deal in Turin.

As per Gazzetta dello Sport, Pogba's 10 appearances during last season meant that the midfielder received a staggering £680,000 (€800,000) per game - and £42,488 (€49,689) per minute played.

When tax is factored into Pogba's contract, Juventus could spend a total of close to £35.9m (€52m) in wages on the player, which could rise even further to £42.9m (€50m), including bonuses and add-ons.

It is claimed that Juventus will seek a transfer fee of around €10m (£8.5m) for Pogba, should they decide to sell.

Pogba fuelled speculation over his future after visiting Saudi Arabia over the weekend.

In a video clip, which has been widely circulated on social media, Pogba was asked directly if he is thinking about joining a Saudi side.

He replied: "Who knows. Now, no. Today, no. Tomorrow, we don't know."

When asked specifically if he would join Saudi Pro League sides Al Ittihad or Al Ahli, Pogba added: "I don't know, we'll see."
