Paul Pogba Rejects New Manchester United Contract as PSG Move Draws Closer

Published

on

Manchester United and France midfielder, Paul Pogba has rejected a new £50m contract at Manchester United.

The blow has forced United bosses to consider selling the French international to the highest bidder this summer – to stop him from leaving Old Trafford for nothing next season.

Pogba stunned United after turning down the offer of a new long term deal worth £350,000-a-week.

The midfielder, 28, has entered the final 12 months of his current £250,000-a-week deal and United wanted to tie him down to an improved one running until 2024.

It now looked like the united ‘No 6’ is keen to leave his boyhood club for the French champions, PSG, who has already added to its rank this summer.

Paul Pogba rejoined Manchester United from Juventus FC in a club record £90m deal in 2016.

He has been inconsistent since then as he has struggled to maintain his form and fitness and even found himself out of the team for long spells when Jose Mourinho was in charge of the ‘Red Devils’.

He has made 122 league appearances in five seasons, scoring 28 goals.

But he shone for France during this summer’s Euros to boost his chances of earning a move to PSG, with United reluctantly admitting defeat in their bid to keep him.
