Paul Pogba is set to become the highest-paid player in the Premier League after signing a new five-year deal extension worth £104 million with Manchester United.

According to The Sun, the Frenchman would be offered a £400,000-per-week deal to retain him in Manchester.

Pogba’s current £290,000-a-week contract has just one year left on it, and United are “desperate” to keep him at Old Trafford.

After the Euros, the club will formally begin talks with the 28-year-old, but initial discussions between the two parties “have been positive.”

His new salary would surpass that of United teammate David de Gea, who makes £375k per week.

United will not finalize the structure of his new contract until after the Euros with France.

Over the last year, Pogba has been in discussions with his agent, Mino Raiola, about his future plans.

If he becomes a free agent next summer, he could expect high earnings and a large signing price.

The £89 million superstar admitted earlier this week that he and United are yet to reach an agreement.

The World Cup winner is happy in Manchester, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is fighting tooth and nail to keep his star player.

Manchester United are hoping to make another big signing this summer in order to challenge for the Premier League title.

Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho is a top target for them, with a fee still being negotiated.
