According to reports, Manchester United are prepared to offer Paul Pogba a pay rise if he decides to stay at the Old Trafford club.
The World Cup winner has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this Summer and with both Juventus and Real Madrid believed to be interested, this is believed to have unsettled the player. Pogba said on the weekend that now could be the time for him to start looking for a challenge elsewhere. However according to the Daily Mail, Manchester United are determined to keep the French Midfielder and are prepared to make him the highest paid player at the club.
Manchester United have already informed any club interested in Pogba that he is not for sale although it is being reported in Spain that he is prepared to take a pay cut in his current wages to make the switch to Real Madrid. The paper also added that Real Madrid have already made an opening offer to United of £90 million but that it has been rejected by the Premier League side.
Pogba has two years left on his current deal although Manchester United have the option to extend it by a further year.
The Mail claims that executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward wants Pogba to stay at the club, not so much because of the potential of his performances on the field but because of his commercial value.
