Paul Pogba has a clause in his contract that increases his pay every year, as per the Sun.
Having joined Manchester United in a record breaking transfer move of £89 million, Paul Pogba has been minting £165,000-a-week since his arrival. However, his pay is set to increase even further due to a clause included in his contract at the time he re-signed for the Red Devils.
This year, Pogba will get his salary increased by £10,000-a-week, thus taking it up to £175,000-a-week from now on. The clause in the French midfielder’s deal will have his wages boosted by the same amount every single year, till his current contract runs out at Old Trafford.
The salary rise will mean that Pogba will be pocketing an extra £500,000-a-year along with his £2.87 million image rights and other bonuses. The big figures involved in Pogba’s transfer will continue to grow bigger year after year, thanks to his unusual contract.
A United source confirmed the story, by stating: “Paul will receive around £500,000-a-year extra as part of the increase. It came into play earlier this month. He earns his basic wage but that’s topped up with a lot of add-ons.”
