A section of Manchester United players is not happy with the club after learning of their new offer for midfielder Paul Pogba.
Pogba’s current deal at Old Trafford runs out in June and despite being strongly linked with a move to PSG, there are reports that United has tabled a deal that will make him the highest-earning player in the Premier League.
The Mirror says the new deal is worth a whopping £500,000-a-week. United are understood to be willing to offer World Cup winner Pogba a basic salary of £400,000-a-week, with add-ons potentially taking it up to the half-a-million mark.
United’s players do not feel Pogba is worthy of such a massive pay hike, given he plays so infrequently and has no qualms about criticizing the club and talking about leaving. The reports say that there will be mutiny within the dressing-room if Pogba ends up accepting the offer.
Cristiano Ronaldo is United’s current highest earner, taking home £450,00-a-week, followed by goalkeeper David De Gea, who is on £375,000-a-week. Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane earn £300,000-a-week, Bruno Fernandes is on £250,000-a-week, with skipper Harry Maguire netting £200,000-a-week.
