Pogba demands spark Real Madrid locker room BACKLASH

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is sparking a Real Madrid locker room backlash.

His £15m-a-year pay deal offer risks a wage war at Real Madrid.

Real are now ready to scrap the transfer of the Manchester United midfielder as stars including Sergio Ramos and Casemiro are furious because they had to take salary cuts because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Sun reports, however, they would be quite happy for the Madrid giants to pay mega-millions to get £250m-rated French striker Kylian Mbappe.

With Pogba only having a year left on his Old Trafford deal, Real could get the French World Cup winner for a much cheaper price than the £120m they were quoted last summer - and so could pay him a whopping £290,000-a-week.

But his £15m-a-year wages are a real concern to Bernabeu stars.

Real Madrid's stars announced a ten per cent pay cut in April for the rest of the season.
