Manchester United have told star player Paul Pogba that he won’t be allowed to join Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid according to reports coming out of the British media.
The specific publication from the Daily Star said that Manchester United are ready to stop Pogba from joining Real Madrid by meeting his huge wage demands.
The French World Cup winner is said to have demanded for weekly wages of £500,000 to extend his current deal at the club.
Paul Pogba has a contract until the end of the 2020/21 season though Manchester United retain the right to activate the additional year clause in his contract to take him to the summer of 2022.
The 25-year-old has talked up a dream move to Real Madrid where football idol Zinedine Zidane is the manager having recently been reappointed into the post eight months after his resignation from the same role.
Paul Pogba has not had the impact many fans expected when the Red Devils splashed £89m to re-sign him from Italian champions Juventus in the summer of 2016.
The Frenchman had spent four years in Turin having left Manchester United as a teenager in 2012 when he was not getting first team opportunities while legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge.
