This is how the costs have been broken down:

  • The transfer fee is 90 million pounds
  • The fee that United will pay to his agent, Mino Raiola, is 18 million pounds
  • Pogba’s salary will total 104 million pounds, paid over 5 years. This translates to 20.8 million pounds per year, with equates to 400,000 pounds per week. After tax, Pogba is expected to earn 220,000 pounds per week. Yes, guys; after tax, 23 year old Paul Pogba is going to earn Kshs.30,8000,000 per week.


Do you think Pogba is worth all that money or United is overpaying?

Either way, it doesn’t look like United care all that much; if you have the money then why not spend it, right?
