Manchester United To Offer Pogba Huge Raise Amid Real Madrid Interest

Paul Pogba

It looks like Paul Pogba is keen to be one of the highest-paid players in the world, or, at least, that's what he pretends with his latest demands.

The 26-year-old is willing to give another chance to Manchester United and would be delighted to stay put at Old Trafford, but the team will have to meet his desired salary of £500,000 per week, as reported by The Sun.

With Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid allegedly high on the possibility of making a huge bid for the Frenchman in the summer and Pogba also openly claiming that playing for Zizou was a "dream for anybody", it looks like the Red Devils are keen to try and keep him from leaving.

Los Blancos have been following Pogba's steps for quite some time and wouldn't mind meeting his salary demands, with his agent Mino Raiola allegedly already engaging in conversations with Florentino Perez.

However, should Manchester United be willing to pay Pogba that much per week, it would be difficult for the Frenchman to leave the team in the summer, considering he's still got a couple of years left on his contract and his new deal would keep him at Old Trafford until 2024.

The World Cup winner is one of the world's most prolific midfielders but hasn't been a synonym of consistency throughout his career, especially since making a comeback from Juventus a couple of seasons ago.

Even so, he's been a key part of the team's recent success under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's command, and both of them have a great relationship, contrary to what happened with Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils are determined to go back to their old winning ways and dominate the English Premier League as they did with Sir Alex Ferson, and they know they have to find the way to keep Pogba on board if they want to go back to being title contenders.
