Manchester United are ready to offer Paul Pogba a huge pay rise at Old Trafford in order to keep the French midfielder, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Red Devils are prepared to hand Pogba a contract worth around £500,000 a week to ensure that the World Cup winner remains at Old Trafford.

The same article states that Real Madrid and Juventus are both interested in a swoop to sign the 26-year-old in the current transfer window given his apparent discontent at the club.

According to the same story, Manchester United are ready to make a significant improvement on his £290,000-a-week deal to convince Pogba to forget about seeking a “new challenge”.

The Daily Mail go on to add that Manchester United are ready to offer Pogba a deal that would be close to Alexis Sanchez’s eye-watering pay packet at the 20-time English champions.

The report goes on to say that Real Madrid failed with a £90m bid for Pogba but the La Liga giants are prepared to make a bigger offer for the French star.

Manchester United signed Pogba in an £89m deal from Serie A side Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window following Jose Mourinho’s appointment as manager.
