Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, will be forced to take a pay cut if he leaves for Real Madrid this summer, ESPN reports.
The Spanish club are not prepared to match his £290,000-a-week pay packet at Old Trafford.
Pogba has been seriously linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, with the player and Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, openly speaking about the possibility in recent weeks.
But United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has insisted that he expects the France international to be a part of his squad next season.
Pogba is expected to push for a move, if the Red Devils don’t qualify for the Champions League.
However, Madrid will not go over the top to lure him from Manchester, as they are unwilling to add further strain to their huge wage bill, by offering him a contract worth more than his United deal.
