Paul Pogba is yet to sign a new Manchester United contract as the Old Trafford club are ‘highly unlikely’ to meet his massive wage demands, according to reports.
The France international’s time with the club is currently ticking down, however, with Pogba’s current deal expiring next summer.
It’s been claimed the 27-year-old wants a salary of £500,000-a-week in order to stay at Old Trafford, a wage that would make him one of the best-paid players in football history.
Yet the Daily Star say it’s ‘highly unlikely’ that United will meet Pogba’s dizzying demand.
And, consequently, the report suggests the 2018 World Cup winner will instead look to wind his contract down with the premier league club for a second time for nothing, something that’s unlikely to please club chiefs.
Pogba could feature when the Red Devils lock horns with Burnley today (4.30pm).
