Man Utd's £500k-a-week contract offer to Paul Pogba 'causes fury in dressing room' with deal still on table

MANCHESTER UNITED stars are "furious" at Paul Pogba being offered £500,000-a-week to stay at Old Trafford, according to reports.

The Frenchman is set to be out of contract at the end of the season, with Red Devils chiefs scrambling to try and protect their asset.

United tabled a basic offer of £400k-a-week earlier this season, with an extra £100k in bonuses.

And the Mirror claim that the tabled contract has ruffled some feathers within the dressing room.

They report that the offer has angered some of his team-mates, who don't feel that he deserves to be among the top earners in the league.

There are also claims that it's felt that Pogba "isn't worthy" of such a pay increase, given that he "plays infrequently".

Some players are frustrated by their team-mate's willingness to criticise the club, while also having no qualms about talking about an exit.

The Mirror add that a dressing room source claims that there could be a "mutiny" at the club if Pogba accepts the huge offer and stays.

He is currently of interest to Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and former club Juventus – with the former seen as favourites to sign him.

Pogba will be able to command a huge signing-on fee from his new club should he leave United, although likely wouldn't be able to earn the same weekly wage elsewhere.

He has made 25 appearances in total this season, starting just 14 of United's 31 Premier League games to date.

The talented star has scored just once this term, but has laid on nine assists.

Reports in France recently suggested that Pogba is "getting closer" to a move to PSG.

They add that he has become a "priority" for Mauricio Pochettino's side, and that he has met with sporting director Leonardo.

It's claimed that he would be happy to move to Paris, with his family welcoming a return to France.
