Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has told the club that he will remain at the club only if he is offered a £200,000-a-week pay rise.
The Sun have claimed that the Frenchman is prepared to leave Old Trafford this summer, and will stay if only United meets his new demands.
Pogba, who was an integral part of the French national side that won the World Cup in Russia, is said to be unhappy with Jose Mourinho due to the manager’s criticism of his performances since he joined the club.
Barcelona and Juventus have been credited with an interest in the French midfielder and have even held talks with his agent during the summer break.
It was reported last week that Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola presented Manchester United with an offer which was rejected by the Red Devils immediately.
However, Pogba is understood to have told some of his teammates at United that he wants to leave the club in favour of a move to Barcelona before the end of the summer transfer window.
United’s CEO Ed Woodward is keen on keeping Pogba at Old Trafford while Jose Mourinho will prefer to replace the French midfielder with Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and has even instructed Jorge Mendes to start working on a deal.
