Man United warn Pogba not to expect big pay rise

Manchester United have warned Paul Pogba not to expect a big pay rise when they offer him a new contract, according to ESPN.

The midfielder joined United in 2016 as a star signing, but he hasn’t been able to inspire the team sufficiently to raise them to the level of genuine Premier League contenders, either under Jose Mourinho or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so far. Further more, he has often been linked with departure with the media in Spain occasionally resorting to frequent rumours about Real Madrid’s interest, and the player himself sparked further speculation by stating that playing for Los Blancos would be a ‘dream’. Lately he’s been linked with Barcelona too, as well as former club Juventus.

As for United, they are keen to keep the services of the 27-year-old 2018 World Cup winner as a France international, and they’ve already exercised the option of extending his contract by 12 months, which means the deal now expires in 2022. They want him to remain at Old Trafford beyond that, but they aren’t willing to give him an increase in wages to anywhere near the sum Alexis Sanchez was earning before his departure to Inter Milan.
