Paul Pogba leaves Manchester United with a whopping million-dollar loyalty bonus.

It was announced on Wednesday that the Frenchman would be leaving Old Trafford after his contract expires at the end of June.

Pogba, who spent six years at Manchester, is said to be in talks with Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid over a free transfer to restart his career.

However, according to The Times, the 29-year-old will receive a £3.75million loyalty payment if he leaves United despite being one of the club’s most disappointing signings.

In 2016, his return from Juventus in a deal worth almost £90million was a source of much excitement but he failed to achieve the success he was tipped for.

In his first season with the Red Devils, he won the Europa League and League Cup under Jose Mourinho.

But poor performances and ongoing transfer speculation saw Pogba’s trophy hunt end there as his United career spiraled downward.

The low point came last season when the 29-year-old was booed off by home fans at Old Trafford after a 3-2 home win over Norwich City.

In the meantime, he lost his place as a regular and only made 20 appearances in the league last season.

In a statement on the club’s website, United said: “The club is able to announce that Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United at the end of June after his contract expires.

“The Frenchman has a long association with United, having joined the club’s academy from Le Havre aged just 16.”

Pogba, whose last game for the club was a 4-0 loss to Liverpool in April, responded via Twitter.

He said: “I feel privileged to have played for this club. Lots of good moments and memories, but above all the unconditional support of the fans. Thanks @ManUtd.’

In total, Pogba made 226 appearances for United and scored 39 goals.
