Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, is ready to renew his contract with the club but is demanding to become the Premier League’s best-paid player above teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, L’Equipe reports.
Pogba’s current deal expires June 2022, but the player will be able to negotiate with clubs outside England from January.
United have yet to reach an agreement over fresh terms with the France international.
And it is believed the club’s hierarchy are ready to lose him on a free transfer next summer.
Pogba “has made no secret” of his desire to continue at Old Trafford, but with condition that he receives a staggering pay rise.
Ronaldo is currently the top earner at United, after signing a £480,000-a-week on his return last summer.
Pogba, meanwhile, is understood to be on a contract worth £290,000 a week.
