Manchester United prepare to offer Paul Pogba a five-year contract worth £400,000 a week, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly preparing to offer Paul Pogba a five-year contract worth £400,000 a week, which would make him the highest-paid player in the Premier League.

The 28-year-old's existing deal with the Red Devils is due to expire next June, and a number of clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Juventus, continue to be linked with his signature.

Pogba's agent Mino Raiola allegedly held talks with PSG last week over the possibility of a move to the French capital during this summer's transfer window.

Meanwhile, a recent report claimed that the France international still has his heart set on a switch to Real Madrid despite Zinedine Zidane's departure as head coach.

However, according to The Sun, Man United are desperate to keep hold of the World Cup winner, who is currently representing his country at Euro 2020.

The report claims that the 20-time English champions are planning to offer the midfielder a five-year contract worth £400,000 a week, which would take him to the summer of 2026.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are said to be prepared to wait until after the European Championship to conclude discussions but want the agreement in place before the start of next season.

Pogba, who currently earns just short of £300,000 a week, scored six times and registered nine assists in 42 appearances for Man United during the 2020-21 campaign.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
