Pogba has previously said it would be a ‘dream’ to play under Zidane, and the Real boss is understood to be keen on bringing him to the Bernabeu.

However, Real are unwilling to match Pogba’s salary, but the 26-year-old is hoping to force through a move by accepting a pay cut.

Mundo Deportivo say Pogba will lower his wage demands so Los Blancos can afford him, meaning he will earn a lower salary than he currently does; Man United reportedly pay Pogba around £290,000-per-week.
