Recent reports coming out of Old Trafford suggested that Paul Pogba was offered a new contract worth a whopping £500k-per-week to extend his stay in Manchester beyond the summer. But Paul Pogba has dismissed any such reports of being offered the £500k-per-week by Manchester United.

Paul Pogba rejoined Manchester United back in the summer of 2016 for a world-record fee back then of £89 million. Since rejoining the club Pogba has made 212 appearances in all competitions for the club. In this time he has recorded 38 goals and 49 assists. (stats via Transfermarkt)

Currently, the French midfielder is out with a thigh injury that he picked up during international duty with France. Pogba is expected to be out until the end of the month before rejoining his teammates. The midfielder was having a good season until the tight injury. He has recorded seven assists in just nine Premier League appearances this term. (stats via Tranfermarkt)

The French World Cup winner’s current contract at Old Trafford runs only until the end of the season. As things stand Paul Pogba is free to talk to foreign clubs to sign a pre-contract for next summer.

The verdict from Paul Pogba’s camp regarding the £500k-per-week new contract rumours

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola claimed back in December of 2020 that his client was unhappy at Old Trafford. Even suggesting that it was ‘over’ for him at the club. Earlier this week rumours suggested that Manchester United had offered Pogba a staggering £500,000-a-week deal.

However, a spokesperson for Pogba talked to the Daily Mail and denied any such rumour. The statement sent to the Daily Mail reads as follows:

“To clarify media reports, Paul has not been offered a new contract in recent months. Paul is fully focused on his recovery from injury with the aim of helping the team as soon as possible.”

Manchester United face Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup on Monday. While Pogba is still nursing the thigh injury and remains unavailable for selection. Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick talking to the press about Pogba’s return said:

“As far as I know, I was told a week ago, it would be a minimum of at least another four or five weeks before he is fit for training again.

“I saw him this morning before the training session, he was in the locker room, and I hope he will be back as soon as possible.”

The Manchester United faithful will be hopeful of Pogba signing a new deal at the club. While also fearing losing the French international on a free transfer yet again. But as things stand Pogba’s future still remains a big question mark.
