Pogba: Why I Left Man Utd

PAUL POGBA claims he left Manchester United because he did not receive a substantial contract offer from the club.

The midfielder, 29, is set to leave Old Trafford after six years when his contract expires at the end of the month.

And he believes United never really wanted to extend his stay, which is why they offered him terms they knew he would reject.

In a new Amazon Prime documentary about his life titled The Pogmentary Pogba shares the conversation he had with his agent, the late Mino Raiola, about United’s offer in the summer of 2021.

Raiola says to his client: “Yes. They absolutely want you to stay.

“For me, the offer doesn’t reflect that. I told them, ‘If you want him to stay, don’t make that offer’.

“I will make them understand that if they really want you to stay and they want to build a project around you, this time they have to act differently and put the money on the table.”

Pogba agreed with his agent’s view of the situation and the Frenchman responds saying: “They’re bluffing.

“How can you tell a player you absolutely want him and offer him nothing? Never seen that.”

Pogba was unhappy with United’s evaluation of his importance to the club yet was offered £500,000 a week to stay.

That deal would have made him the highest paid player in Premier League history, on a basic wage of around £400,000 a week before add-ons.

But Pogba opted against a renewal and now looks set to return to Juventus where he will reportedly earn £135,000 a week.

The deal between the player and Juventus is “just a matter of final details” being completed.

PSG and Real Madrid have also reportedly been in contact with Pogba but Massimiliano Allegri’s side appear to have won the battle to sign him.
