Paul Pogba is on his way to receive a £3.78 million “loyalty” bonus from Manchester United, just three days after declaring he wishes to transfer to Real Madrid.
According to a number of different reports, the World Cup winner will net a bulky £3.8 million on July 1st along with a 5-year contract at Old Trafford. The fee has raised from £3.5 million loyalty payment of 2018.
The Red Devils are also ready to up the wage of the 26-year old from his current £290 per week deal in a last minute attempt to convince the Frenchman to stay at United.
“I am thinking of this: To have a new challenge somewhere else,” Pogba said in an interview with bEIN Sports last week.
“For me, I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great; some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody. Like everywhere else.”
“After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well. I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else.”
According to reports from The Daily Mail, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to offer Pogba ‘up to £500,000 a week’ to convince him to stay, which, if happens, will match the monumental wage of club’s starman Alexis Sánchez.
