Mike Phelan ‘has concerns over staying at Manchester United’
Mike Phelan is reported to have concerns over staying at Manchester United in a full-time role.
Phelan is reported to have concerns about the management and recruitment system that has been put in place since he left the club in 2013.
He is said to be keen on a simpler set-up and would prefer a clearer line of communication between the coaching staff and the club’s top brass.
Pogba’s current deal at United expires in 2021 though the club do have the power to trigger an automatic one-year extension on top of that.
However, it is claimed by The Sun United are prepared to table a three-year extension to keep Pogba at Old Trafford until 2024.
Pogba is said to be on £300,000 a week at Old Trafford and the report says United may have to offer the Frenchman a £500,000-a-week deal to convince him to stay.
Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane talked up Pogba last week as he said: “I like Pogba a lot, it’s nothing new.
“I know him personally. He’s a different kind of player, he brings so much and there are few players who bring as much as he does.
“He’s a midfielder who knows how to defend and how to attack. He knows how to do everything on the pitch.”
