Paul Pogba’s wages at Manchester United are thought to be around £220,000-a-week.
So it’s fair to say he’s not doing bad for himself. At 23 years of age, Pogba is earning enough money to last dozens of lifetimes.
Yeah, we’re jealous.
Such high wages were to be expected once the Frenchman became the most expensive player in the world, joining United from Juventus for a world-record £89 million fee.
The jury is still out on whether Pogba is worth that much money. His performance in United’s 4-1 win against Leicester City pointed to a player who can justify his price tag but, as Jose Mourinho has pointed out, he must produce the goods on a consistent basis.
The midfielder enjoyed four impressive years in Turin, helping the Old Lady win the Italian title four times and leading them to a Champions League final.
However, such was the furore over his summer move to Old Trafford that he wasn’t given the opportunity to clear out his locker at Juventus’ stadium.
Pogba's return to Juve
He recently found time to fly back to Italy and, showing off his new-found wealth, purchased a leaving present for his former pals.
According to The Sun - who reference Tuttosport - Pogba gave everyone at the club, including former teammates, coaching staff and club officials, a Rolex watch.
Now, Rolex watches don’t come cheap. Each would would have set Pogba back a few grand.
Given that he would have had to purchase roughly 40 or so, we dread to imagine the bill.
