Paul Pogba demands €600000 per week from Manchester United to stay at Old Trafford after his request for a move was denied this summer.
It is no surprise that Paul Pogba’s ambitions have surpassed Manchester United. The Red Devils are not the force they once were and Pogba understands that if he is to ever be considered amongst the best to have played the game, he will need to win titles. Hardly a possibility at United at the moment.
“After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well… I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else,” he had said earlier in the summer.
United however, refused to sell. Instead they demanded exorbitant price for him to turn off his pursuers. Solskjaer has repeatedly spoken of his desire to build his time around Pogba as he attempts to lead United into a new Era.
However, the team’s dismal performance and his own loss of form has made him more desperate than he has ever been to leave the club. The club though hold the cards at the moment as his contract with United runs until 2022. Therefore, he and his agent have decided to compromise instead.

According to Italian media outlet Tuttosport, Pogba has stated his desire to earn a record breaking €600,000-per-week from Manchester United. If United agrees, this will be more money than Cristiano Ronaldo earns at Juventus and would make him the highest paid player in the Premier League.
It is unlikely though that United will relent to such a demand. It looks like Solskjaer or whoever, is at the helm in January will have a storm to deal with regarding Paul Pogba’s transfer all over again.
