Manchester United are prepared to offer Paul Pogba a new mega-money contract in a bid to persuade their unsettled star to stay.
Pogba signalled his intention to leave this summer after admitting over the weekend that it “could be time for a new challenge”.
Real Madrid and Juventus have an interest in him, but United are determined to keep their record signing next season, unless they receive an offer well in excess of the £89 million they paid Juve in 2016.
They are set to address the issue by offering Pogba a pay rise that will up his current £290 000-a-week pay to nearer the £500 000 being picked up by United’s top earner Alexis Sanchez.
Pogba has two years left on his deal, which United have the option to extend by 12 months.
