Superstar Paul Pogba has reportedly told his Manchester United teammates he wants to leave the club amid rumours he has already agreed a weekly salary of £350 000 (R6 billion) with one of the biggest teams in Europe.
According to the Daily Mail, the Frenchman has made it clear to the board and his colleagues that he wishes to leave the Red Devils in this transfer window.
In the past 48 hours, Pogba has expressed his desire to move on from the club due to his ongoing issues with manager Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese boss and the player were believed to have fallen out during the course of the 2017/18 campaign, while the manager also criticised the player a few times during the 2018 FIFA World Cup, despite many praising the 25-year-old for a superb tournament in Russia.
United are believed to be unwilling to let the midfielder leave the club, but his agent Mino Raiola is said to be working hard on a deal with Spanish giants FC Barcelona.
It has even been claimed that Pogba has agreed personal terms on a whopping contract that could see him earn £350 000 (R6 billion) a week in LaLiga, despite the Red Devils’ board denying these rumours.
When asked about Pogba’s future recently, Raiola said that he “will never make declarations about Paul”, and that those seeking answers will “have to speak to Manchester United.”
The midfielder, who is United’s highest-paid player, has a contract until 2021, and has won two trophies at the club since his return in 2016.
