Manchester United have offered to make Paul Pogba the highest paid player in Premier League history in a bid to keep him at the club.

The France international is one of a number of United players whose contract is up in the summer and, as reported by Sportsmail, he has so far shown little desire to extend his Old Trafford stay. 

Pogba has been linked with a number of Europe’s biggest clubs, including former club Juventus and a move back to France with Paris Saint-Germain. Real Madrid have also been heavily linked.

However, according to The Sun, United are preparing a gigantic offer in order to persuade him to stay on at the Theatre of Dreams.

They report that the club are willing to offer him £400,000-a-week basic salary, with add ons likely to take him to the half-a-million mark. It is thought to be £100,000 more than any offer he is likely to receive on the continent. 

Pogba is currently allowed to talk to other clubs outside of England on signing a pre-contract, with the 28-year-old’s current deal havnig less than six months to run.

He has yest to play under interim head coach Ralf Rangnick, having been ruled out with a hamstring injury he picked up on international duty in October.

Pogba is not the only United player looking at his options this month, with no fewer than seventeen members of Rangnick’s first-team squad reportedly unhappy.

As Sportsmail reported on Thursday night, morale is low with up to half the squad wanting to leave, the dressing room divided into cliques, and below-par performances on the pitch leaving United seventh in the Premier League

Rangnick is believed to have identified a selfish element among the United dressing room who are reluctant to pull together for the team — a problem first detected by Mourinho.

While the club would be happy to offload certain players, their high salaries are a stumbling block for any transfer or loan deals.
