Paul Pogba is set to become Premier League’s highest-paid player in order to convince him to stay at Manchester United.
The 28-year-old has only 12 months remaining on his contract, and he recently acknowledged that the club have yet to hold concrete negotiations over a renewal.
There has been speculation that the midfielder could be sold for £50 million this summer if the Red Devils are unsuccessful in renewing his deal after Euro 2020.
According to the Sun, United are willing to make Pogba the highest-paid player in the division with staggering wages of £400,000-a-week.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to keep Pogba, and the hierarchy appear set to back the manager with a bumper deal for the World Cup winner.
While the statistic is impressive for a central midfielder, there has been criticism from some fans over Pogba’s lack of consistency.
