Pogba ready to take a pay cut in bid to seal Real Madrid move

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is willing to take a pay cut in order to seal a move from to Real Madrid, according to Marca.

United have insisted this summer that the midfielder is not for sale, but the Spanish giants are ready to ‘throw everything’ at getting their top target, having already secured the services of Eden Hazard from Chelsea and striker Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt.

That will involve paying at least £135million for the Frenchman’s services, nearly £50m more than those at Old Trafford paid to bring him back in 2016.

Obstacles

There are still obstacles to overcome however, one being the need to raise the cash to pay for Pogba through selling some of the current crops at the club.

As revealed on Monday, Zidane will not be in a position to sign any other players unless they raise the money themselves due to Financial Fair Play restrictions, and other expenditures, such as the money going on their stadium upgrade.

There are 15 players who Real would be willing to part with this summer, including Gareth Bale, Keylor Navas and James Rodriguez.

President Florentino Perez revealed as of two weeks ago, however, that the club had yet to receive an offer for any player.
