Paul Pogba has moved to dismiss reports he has been offered a new Manchester United deal worth £500,000-per-week.
The Old Trafford star, who is currently recovering from injury, has entered the final six months of his contract.
Reports that surfaced on Friday have suggested that he was offered fresh terms worth £500,000-per-week last summer.

But a spokesman for Pogba has issued a statement to Sportsmail to deny suggestions of a recently extended contract offer from 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 in the final year of his contract and is free to speak to foreign clubs over a pre-contract agreement this month.

If both parties are unable to come to terms on a new deal it would mean that they would lose Pogba for nothing for the second time in his career.
The 28-year-old returned to Old Trafford in 2016 for £89m and has gone on to score 38 goals in 212 appearances during his second stint at the club.
Pogba has been linked with a number of Europe’s biggest clubs, including former club Juventus and a move back to France with Paris Saint-Germain. Real Madrid have also been heavily linked.
Pogba is not the only United player looking at his options this month, with no fewer than seventeen members of Rangnick’s first-team squad reportedly unhappy.
