And his agent, Mino Raiola is said to have told senior members of the United hierarchy his client will sign a deal, but ONLY if it’s worth a staggering half a million per week, according to the Daily Star.
Should United agree to Pogba’s demands, it would make him the highest paid player in the club’s history.
The Daily Star also claim that PSG, Real Madrid and Juventus have all been informed how much it would cost to secure his signature.
Incredibly, with image rights included to that base wage Pogba could net somewhere in the region of £800,000-a-week.
Pogba and Raiola are aware that his next move will probably be the last lucrative deal he is likely to be offered.
The Red Devils signed the midfielder for a club-record fee of £90million in 2016.
But during his time with the Premier League giants he is yet to win a league title, with only EFL Cup and the Europa League winners’ medals to his name.
This season, Pogba was slow out the traps as he struggled for form earlier in the campaign.
However, since the turn of the year his performances have improved – and he recently captained the team in the quarter-final Europa League win over Granada.
