Paul Pogba has complained that Man United offered him nothing, even though they offered two contracts of PS 300,000 per week, as revealed in the player’s new documentary. The “Pigmentary” released on Friday announced that United bosses had offered Paul Pogba two new deals above his existing PS 290,000-a-week contract, allowing him to become one of the world’s most highly paid players. A stinging Paul Pogba admits that he is furious at Manchester United for not offering him anything at Old Trafford, despite turning down two offers for hugely lucrative contracts. Sky Sports News understands Manchester United’s contract offer is still on the table, but Paul Pogba has explored other options and has since left the club in a free transfer, the second time of his career.
Pogba was not happy with the assessment Manchester United gave him for how important he was to the club but was offered a significant contract, worth 500,000 pounds per week, for staying. At the time, Manchester United’s proposed agreement for Paul Pogba was reported as being more than PS290,000 per week, with Sky Sports News understanding that it offered him a 3.5% raise over his then-contract. Despite this, Paul Pogba and his agent indicated that he would have been willing to sign a new deal with United had they made a suitable offer at the appropriate time. When United eventually presented Paul Pogba with a new contract, their perceived under-the-table offer was not in line with what Pogba considered fair value.
It was surprising when The Athletic revealed that Manchester City had held discussions with Paul Pogba, going so far as to meet face-to-face with Pep Guardiola and reportedly come up with a contract offer which would make him one of their highest earners (although not as high as Kevin De Bruyne or new signing Erling Haaland). Manchester City had also made an incredible offer to sign Pogba from fierce rivals United, with Pep Guardiola meeting Paul Pogba and the club drawing up a lucrative contract offer to show they wanted him. Those overtures fell on deaf ears, although Barcelona and Real Madrid were both keenly interested at the time. His impending transfer will signal a move back to Juventus.
As disappointing as his spell in Manchester has been, especially the last season, the documentary offers a few welcome reminders of the skills and qualities that made Paul Pogba such a desirable player and a man, his agent says, who looks far more at home playing for Juventus and France. In the new Amazon Prime documentary on the life of PAUL POGBA, The Pigmentary, Pogba shares a conversation he had with his agent, the late Mino Raiola, over an extended contract offer.
