Ex Man United chief exec David Gill claims club offered Juve’s Paul Pogba ‘a very good wage’ to stay
- March 19, 2014
Manchester United have capitulated following the exit of manager Sir Alex Ferguson and chief executive David Gill.
New manager David Moyes has transformed the side from Champions into Europa League hopefuls.
Central midfield is the obvious weak point of the squad, with United fans ruing the departure of Paul Pogba on a free in 2012.
The young French midfielder left after making only 3 Premier League appearances under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Speaking to RedCafe, David Gill claims Man United ‘did not hold anything back financially’ in an attempt to keep hold of Pogba.
Gill said “We did. We offered Pogba a very good wage, as well as a very generous fee for his agent. I don’t want to go into details, because it was a complex issue. However, what I can say is that we were very disappointed.
“Whenever a player is determined to leave and his contract allows it there is nothing we can do about it. I can assure you that we did not hold anything back, financially.”
