'Man Utd Are Desperate To Give Pogba 400k-a-week'

Manchester United legend Paul Ince has slammed the Red Devils for reportedly offering Paul Pogba £400,000-a-week to keep him at the club.

Pogba is in the final year of his contract with the Red Devils and he is only set to make his final decision his future at the end of the season.

There have been reports that the Red Devils could make Pogba the highest-paid player at the club and in the Premier League, but Ince feels that is desperation.

"That's a sign of desperation from Manchester United in offering that contract," the ex-United midfielder told The United Stand.

"Obviously, they're trying to persuade him to sign this deal. It's a lot of money for someone who has been in and out of the side.

"He was on the bench two weeks ago against Everton and then all of a sudden you're saying: 'Here's £400k a week!'

"Ultimately, if you're paying that type of money for a player, he has to play every game and we're not seeing Paul Pogba play every game.

"Where is his ideal position? Where does Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] see him playing week in, week out? We know where Bruno Fernandes plays, that's easy enough. But where does Paul Pogba play?

"Does he play in holding midfield like he did against Wolves? Is he going to play him on the left-hand side? Is he going to put him on the bench? There's too much confusion with where Pogba's best position is.

"He was more advanced at the start of the season and his assists record has been fantastic this season. He was unbelievable against Southampton.

"But I'm looking at this and thinking, 'What makes you offer Paul Pogba £400k a week at this precise moment?' He's not pulling up trees and his performances have been on and off."
