Manchester United deny they’re in new contract talks with Paul Pogba.
The club also insist he is not holding them to ransom by demanding a reported £600,000-a-week new deal.
Pogba – who is expected to miss Sunday’s clash with Newcastle at St James’ Park with an ankle injury – has two years left on his current contract.
United say no formal talks have yet taken place – and they believe they are not under any time pressure to make the French World Cup winner a new offer yet.An Old Trafford insider told the Mirror: “Pogba’s only focus right now is trying to be fit to help his team-mates.
“Reports of him demanding £600,000-a-week to stay aren’t true. Paul has two years left on his contract so time is on our side in terms of discussions on a new deal.”The club made it clear in the summer that we want Paul at United and that remains the case.”
