Manchester United star midfielder Paul Pogba’s future at the club has been cast into further doubt as the French international has reportedly rejected the latest contract offer from Manchester United.
According to The Mirror, it is heard that the 28-year-old France midfielder is ready to try a new challenge elsewhere after rejecting a massive £350,000-a-week offer to stay at Old Trafford.
Manchester United looking to let go Paul Pogba after the latter decided not to renew his contract with the club
Pogba has shown unwillingness to sign a new deal with the red outfit of Manchester which has forced the club to look at selling their club record signing of £85 million or risk letting him go for nothing next summer. However,
Paris Saint Germain are ready to pay a hefty £45m for Pogba who has year left on his current contract, and things look for likely than ever after Pogba turned down the offer of a £350,000 a week deal.
United wanted to tie down Pogba, who is now 28, to a new long-term deal and are prepared to offer him a enormous pay hike on his existing £250,000-a-week deal.
However, the World Cup winner with France and his agent, Mino Raiola have snubbed the offer in a bid to force through a move to PSG and a accept a new challenge with the French giants. But, Manchester United are not prepared to let go Pogba for free and salvage up whatever they can this season.
But, United are also not willing to let go Pogba cheaply and are only willing to sanction his sale to any other top club if their £50m valuation is met this summer.
Pogba had left United for Juventus back in 2012 but returned to Old Trafford in 2016 for a club record fee, but has failed to live up to the expectations and make good of his price tag on many occasions. Pogba has made 199 appearances during his spell with Manchester, scoring 38 goals and coming up clutch on some occasions, but failed to lead United the Premier League title.
After a disappointing end to the 2020-21 season which saw United beaten on penalties by Villarreal in the Europa League final, Pogba put up a bright performance for France at Euros, which could allow United to notch up a good price for him.
PSG look in prime position to land the French midfielder, as they are ready to pay £45 million but are yet to make a formal bid, with United wanting to wait a bit and assess the market and see if they can notch up a higher value, which could facilitate their move for £50m Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.
