Paul Pogba wants to become highest-paid player in the Premier League

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba still needs to decide on his future with his current contact set to expire at the end of the season. New reports suggest the France international, who is out injured for the foreseeable future, wants to become the highest-paid player in English football.

The club has been trying to get Pogba to sign a new deal for some time, but it is understood that the player has been weighing up his options and has yet to decide on what he wants to do come the summer.

This is the biggest hint yet that he sees a future at United, though I’m not sure he warrants the salary he is reportedly demanding, as per L’Equipe (via Sport Witness). The newspaper claims Pogba wants to ‘break all salary records in the history of the Premier League.’

Of course he does, skipping hand-in-hand with his agent Mino Raiola.

It’s a bold move from Pogba to ask to become the league’s highest paid player when his performances are usually underwhelming to say the least.

I’m probably not alone when it comes to going cold on Pogba. Enough is enough.

What has he achieved on-field to warrant such wage….

  2. Paul don’t deserve to be the highest paid player in the league. He is not contributing a lot towards his team. he is more like a player that is only good to play for his country. Performs more for his country than for his club. Money is more important than playing the game. Pogba and so many players think that they are bigger than the game, but the game is bigger than any player. You stop playing one ay, and the game continues.
