Paul Pogba wants huge salary to reject Real Madrid for Manchester United

His performances on the pitch have been woeful at best, scoring just twice in an injury-ravaged season that has seen him play just 23 times.

Pogba has been heavily linked with a move to Madrid in recent weeks and Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has made no secret of his admiration for the World Cup victor since returning to the Bernabéu last month.

The Norwegian has brought back the smiles to Old Trafford after a gloomy season under Jose Mourinho.

Everton keeper Jordan Pickford and Atletico Madrid stopper Jan Oblak are on Man United's shortlist if they lose De Gea, who is a target for PSG.

The Spanish giants enquired about the midfielder's availability when he was playing for the Serie A side in Turin, but were undone by a then-world-record transfer fee as Pogba returned to Old Trafford.

Pogba, 26, has two years left on his current contract and is heavily linked to a £155m move to Madrid this summer.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are now preparing for their Champions League quarter-final showdown with FC Barcelona at Old Trafford on Wednesday night next week.

Meanwhile, Juan Mata is still holding discussions with some clubs including Barca as his contract runs out at the end of the season.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is willing to reject the advances of Real Madrid if the club is prepared to make him the joint highest paid player with Alexis Sanchez, according to reports in England.
