World-Class Midfielder Turns Down €350,000-a-week Contract Offered By Manchester United

Manchester United have been dealt a fresh blow as Paul Pogba has reportedly turned down a lucrative new contract. The midfielder has entered the final 12 months of his deal at Old Trafford and both parties might now seek a transfer.

The Red Devils were apparently hopeful of securing Pogba on fresh terms to extend his stay beyond next summer.

His situation placed United into a difficult situation. They could either place Pogba on the transfer list or hope that he would have a change of heart and sign a new contract

The Mirror report he has snubbed a £350,000 per week offer. With just one year remaining on his contract, it is likely he ends up sold this summer amid interest from PSG.

Pogba leaving will have a big impact, and not all of it bad. Here is a look at three winner if United cash in on the France international…

Pogba leaving is very good news for Donny van de Beek. The Dutchman was signed partly as insurance for Pogba’s eventual departure and now he will get more game time.

Paris Saint-Germain have seemingly made the strongest move this summer to try and lure Pogba away from United, with reports stating an agreement is close on personal terms.

Le10 Sport claim the French giants are willing to sell nine players in order to fund a move for Pogba this summer.

It is suggested PSG would listen to offers for Ander Herrera, Rafinha, Julian Draxler, Danilo Pereira, Idrissa Gueye, Thilo Kehrer, Sergio Rico, Layvin Kurzawa or Mauro Icardi.

But Manchester Evening News report that PSG is Pogba's 'least desirable' destination should he leave.

It is claimed that Pogba is holding out for a return to Juventus, or a move to Real Madrid.

However, both Real and Juventus are in difficult financial positions this summer and may be unlikely to meet United's demands in their current situation.
