Highest-paid footballers in 2020

Pogba’s current deal expires next summer, although Manchester United has the option to extend it one more year. The French playmaker scared fans in early August by posting on social media that he had signed for Verdansk FC. It turned out to be a fictional club and a stunt by sponsor Activision to promote Call of Duty: Warzone, Season 5. The 27-year-old has also appeared with Messi and Salah in Pepsi’s “Play Never Stops” campaign.
