Real Madrid reluctant to match Pogba salary demands
If the French international is to make a summer move to the Santiago Bernabeú, he would need to take a reduction in salary for the deal to materialise.
The name of Manchester United's Paul Pogba has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent weeks with the return of long time admirer Zinedine Zidane on the Bernabeú adding fuel to the flames.
Pogba's current salary (at United) would see him move the top of the highest earners at the LaLiga club ahead of the likes of Gareth Bale (currently earning 15 million euro per season) and Sergio Ramos on 11.8 million euro per campaign.
The player's salary was reported as one of the potential stumbling blocks of a potential move with ESPN's Mark Ogden reporting that the Spanish club are unwilling to match Pogba's salary.
