French midfielder Paul Pogba said he wanted to prove Manchester United wrong, after he described their offer to keep him on a weekly salary of 300,000 pounds ($367,000) as nothing.
The British news agency (PA Media) reported that the 29-year-old French midfielder is expected to return to Juventus at the end of his contract with Manchester United at the end of this month.
In a documentary about Pogba, produced by Amazon Prime, which will be shown on Friday, the French player discussed his future with his late agent Mino Raiola, who died after a struggle with illness last April.
In scenes seen by BA Media, Pogba said: “My goal is to make it clear to Manchester United that they were wrong when they offered me that contract and to show the other clubs that Manchester United made a mistake when they didn’t offer me a contract.”
As shown in the documentary, Manchester United have already made two offers for Pogba to stay, while Raiola also said he had spoken with Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
Pogba appeared in the documentary asking Raiola if Manchester United made a second offer in July 2021, and Raiola replied: “Yes, they really want you to stay, for me, the offer does not reflect that, and I told them that if you want him to stay, do not make that offer.” .
“I’m going to make sure they understand that if they really want you to stay and build a business with you, they have to do differently and put money on the table,” he added.
“They are cheating,” Pogba said. “How can you tell a player that you really want him to stay, and then don’t give him anything?” I’ve never seen that before.”
