Paul Pogba has reportedly made a shock demand at Manchester United, one that relates to the team's best-paid player, Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to French publication L'Equipe, the 28-year-old will extend his contract in England should the Red Devils make him the highest-paid player in the Premier League.
The midfielder's current deal at United expires in June 2022, and, with the turn of the year around the corner, there are growing concerns he will negotiate his future with interested parties from January.
Pogba reportedly believes he should be earning more than Ronaldo, who is said to be paid about £510 000 (R10 million) every week at the 20-time English champions.
Here is where Pogba currently ranks among the highest-paid players at United:
Per the Daily Mirror, the ex-Juventus midfielder is only willing to commit himself to the club should the board meet this demand, with it thought that United hope to resolve the situation before next year.
It remains to be seen whether or not the struggling EPL side will offer Pogba what he is said to want, especially given his current difficulties under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Frenchman seems to have fallen out of favour with the 48-year-old Norwegian in recent months, despite a terrific start to the 2021/22 league campaign.
Pogba recorded seven assists in his first four appearances in the Premier League this season, but is yet to contribute to another goal across all competitions since.
