- Paul Pogba is understood to be asking for more than £480,000-per-week in wages to sign new Man United deal
- Should United bow to Pogba's demands, the 29-year-old will become Premier League's top earner
- The Red Devils midfielder is currently on the sidelines due to a thigh injury and will be out for at least 10 weeks
Paul Pogba has reportedly demanded a higher pay than Cristiano Ronaldo if he is to sign a new deal with Man United, The Sun reports.
The Frenchman's contract is set to expire next summer and United could lose him for nothing with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona interested in the midfielder.
Several discussions have been held with the 29-year-old to renew his deal with the Red Devils but an agreement has not been reached.
The France international is understood to be earning around £290,000-a-week and is willing to sign a new deal.
What Pogba wants
French news media outlet L'Equipe claims Pogba has made no secret of his desire to commit his immediate future with Man United.
Pogba's demands clearly state that he wants to become Premier League's highest earner which is above Ronaldo's £480,000-per-week wages.
However, it is understood that United are beginning to get frustrated with the French midfielder's demands and could let him go for free during the summer window.
Pogba is currently out of action for the next ten weeks after pulling a thigh muscle in training for the national team.
The Frenchman will return to action in the new year and will miss United's remaining Champions League group campaign as well as clashes with Chelsea and Arsenal.
Pogba picks up thigh injury
TUKO.co.ke had earlier reported that Paul Pogba will not be a part of France's squad that would take on Kazakhstan and Finland for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The Man United midfielder sustained a thigh injury and was withdrawn from the rest of Didier Deschamps squad for their two matchday fixtures.
The 28-year-old missed the Red Devils' last two matches against Tottenham and Man City following the red card he got during the 5-1 thrashing against Liverpool.
Pogba came under huge criticisms for causing United more misery when he came on as a substitute during the fixture against the Reds.
