Pogba to stay at Utd ‘on 1 condition’

English Premier League

With less than a year left on his contract, Manchester United star Paul Pogba is reportedly prepared to stay at Old Trafford, but on one condition. 

While Pogba's future remains in the balance as to whether or not he will agree to a new deal with United, reports in France have suggested that the 28-year-old is weighing up the option of staying at his current club beyond this season.

In August, the player's agent Mino Raiola teased the possibility of the 2013 Golden Boy winner returning to his former club Juventus upon the expiry of his deal at Old Trafford. 

"Pogba's contract expires next year. We will talk to Manchester (United) and see," he said, per the Daily Mirror. 

"For sure, Turin has remained in his heart and he cares a lot about these things. The possibility of returning to Juventus is there but it also depends on Juve."

However, that may have just been a bargaining ploy from the agent as it has now being reported that Pogba has told friends that he wants a new deal at United, and the player's camp is ready to agree to a new contract if the club ensures that he becomes one of the highest-paid stars in Premier League history, according to L'Equipe.

Per the Mirror, the Red Devils are ready to offer him a mammoth £400 000 (R8.1 million) a week, and it is believed this would be enough to seal the deal for Pogba's camp.

The Frenchman is currently the 10th highest-paid player in the English top flight, earning a reported £290 000 (R5.8 million) weekly, which places him behind the likes of national team compatriot N'Golo Kante and club colleague David de Gea, per spotrac.
