Paul Pogba has dismissed claims that he has been offered a mammoth £500,000-a-week offer by Manchester United to stay on at the club.

Pogba is nearing the end of his contract with the Red Devils and could leave the club at the end of the current season. Reports earlier this week claimed that the Frenchman has been offered fresh terms worth £500,000-per-week, which would make him the highest-paid in Premier League history.

However, a spokesperson for the 28-year-old issued a statement to the Daily Mail and denied suggestions of any new offer made by United.

The statement read: "To clarify media reports, Paul has not been offered a new contract in recent months. Paul is fully focused on his recovery from injury with the aim of helping the team as soon as possible."

Pogba is free to speak with interested clubs this January, with Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and Juventus interested in securing his services.

The World Cup winner has been out of action since November, and interim boss Ralf Rangnick said it will be another 'four or five' weeks before he's back in training.

"As far as I know, I was told a week ago, it would be a minimum of at least another four or five weeks before he is fit for training again," he told the club's website.

"I saw him this morning before the training session, he was in the locker room, and I hope he will be back as soon as possible.

"Right now, he’s not been part of the training group and, even if he was back whenever, two, three or four weeks, it will take some time.

"It’s one thing to be training fit but, on the other hand, he needs to be fit for the match and competition in either the Premier League or the Champions League and this will still take some time."
