United midfielder rejects contract offer

GiveMeSport

Manchester United starlet Paul Pogba has reportedly rejected the offer of a new contract from the club.

According to The People, Pogba was offered £15,000-per-week to stay at Old Trafford, but is holding out for a salary around three times more than what is on the table.

Should the 18-year-old continue to stall over signing a new deal, he will be free to talk to other clubs about a potential summer move.

Several clubs have been linked with a swoop for the Frenchman, with Arsenal, Manchester City and AC Milan said to harbour ambitions of signing him.

Pogba has made three first-team appearances for United this term - all of these coming in the the Carling Cup - the latest of which was in the defeat to Crystal Palace.

However, despite the embarrassing result for United, Pogba impressed in the centre of midfield, while he has also been winning the praise of Paul Scholes.

"He is a big, strong player," the Old Trafford legend told manutd.com.

"His skill is brilliant, as are his physique and speed…he’s potentially a top-class player."
