Manchester United’s Paul Pogba will reportedly have to be prepared to earn less money if he wants to join Real Madrid.
The 26-year-old midfielder, who returned to Old Trafford for £89million in August 2016, is now said to be flirting with a summer move to the Bernabeu.
But the World Cup winner will have to take a pay cut at the La Liga giants as the club refuse to equal his United wage of £290,000 per week, according to ESPN.
Ahead of France’s Euro 2020 qualifying win over Moldova in March, Pogba was quizzed on interest from Spain.
‘Like I’ve always said, Real Madrid is a dream for anyone. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world,’ he said.
‘There is also Zidane as a coach and it’s a dream for anybody who likes football. For now, I’m at Manchester. We don’t know what the future holds. I’m at Manchester and I’m happy.’
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has previously spoken of his admiration for his fellow countryman and the Spanish giants are said to be lining up a move for him.
