Why Man Utd may not extend Pogba’s contract
Posted On May 17, 2021
With the summer transfer window weeks away from the start, Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba has once again been linked with moves away from the club.
As before, Pogba has been linked with moves to Real Madrid and Juventus.
However, with reports already claiming the two clubs are ready to move to him this summer, it is uncertain whether they can afford the high price Man Utd could appreciate the French midfielder.
Real Madrid for one would not be able to afford an expensive transfer fee for Pogba as their finances have been affected.
As Pogba only has 12 months to go in his current contract with the Red Devils, the club has stated that the French international would not be allowed to keep the club for a ransom.
According to The Mirror, Man United want Pogba to sign a new deal, but the 20-time English champions are wary of giving in to Frenchman’s agent Mino Raiola when it comes to wage demands.
The report claimed the 28-year-old agent would have a deal worth more than £ 400,000 a week and the club’s board is currently assessing whether the deal will represent value for money.
However, Man Utd coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær is eager to keep Pogba at Old Trafford.
