Man United New Offer For Paul Pogba To Stay At Old Trafford Causes Reaction From Rest Of The Squad

There is a discord in the Manchester United dressing room after the club offered Paul Pogba a new contract worth £500,000-a-week, reports the Daily Mirror.

United are facing ‘dressing room backlash’ over potentially making Pogba one of the – if not the most – highest-paid players in the Premier League.

Several players ‘do not feel Pogba is worthy’ of such a huge contract, considering how infrequently he plays and the fact that he always bad-mouths the club publicly.

The Frenchman is in talks with PSG over a free transfer, with his family also believed to be keen on moving to Paris.

A source told the Daily Mirror: “Some of the players think it’s out of order he could be getting twice as much as they’re when he hardly starts a game and talks about leaving all the time.”

For context, Harry Maguire – the captain – earns £200,000-a-week while Bruno Fernandes recently received a pay hike to pocket £250,000-a-week.

Only Cristiano Ronaldo earns roughly the same amount that Pogba could potentially receive.

The Daily Mirror adds that if Pogba accepts the offer, it could lead to a ‘mutiny’ among the rest of the players. There are many who play more often than Pogba and are genuinely committed to the club but earn half of that.
