The ongoing saga as to whether Paul Pogba will remain a Manchester United player this summer continues to generate column inches in the mainstream media.
Our last offering on the subject matter, Click Here, covered the outrageous suggestion that Pogba, in order to push a move through to Real Madrid, might go on strike.
Over the last forty-eight hours, it appears that United have served their intent that they wish to hang onto the 26-year-old Frenchman with the Daily Mail, implying that the club are willing to offer Pogba a weekly salary of £500,000 a week to stay, an outrageous sum that, we believe, could further destabilise the wage structure at Old Trafford.
Continuing on the money theme, another article from the same source, the Daily Mail, carries the announcement that, come 1-July, Pogba is in line for a £3.78 million loyalty bonus which, considering all the speculation about the player leaving, is something we, here at Vital Manchester United, find staggering.
Once again it goes to show just how financially driven the game is and how far it has moved on from the working man who used to look forward all week to a Saturday game where he felt he could associate with those wearing the club badge.
Now whether it’s for better or worse I’ll let you decide.
