What does the future hold for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba? (Martin Rickett/PA) (PA Wire)
What the papers sayThe Paul Pogba contract roller coaster has taken another surprising turn, with reports out of France indicating the 28-year-old wants to renew his contract with Manchester United – albeit with a caveat. Metro, citing L’Equipe, says Pogba is demanding he overtakes team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo to become the Premier League’s highest-paid player. It comes after a report earlier this week claimed United bosses were open to receiving a substantial offer for the midfielder in the upcoming transfer window.
Raheem Sterling could be considered for a potential loan move to Barcelona in January, according to the Daily Mirror. Citing a report from Marca, the paper says the LaLiga giants are eager to bolster their front line with an experienced, out-of-favour forward who would be open to a loan move until the end of the season, with Sterling earmarked as a perfect fit.
