Watching Ramos? Pogba demands to be BEST PAID to join Real Madrid

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is demanding he move to Real Madrid as the squad's highest paid player - and by some distance.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane has demanded president Florentino Perez bring Pogba to Madrid - no matter the cost. However, any deal could invite major tension inside Zidane's locker room, says AS.

Pogba doesn't want to see his current €17m salary cut to move to Real.

However, should Real offer parity, it would mean Pogba joining Real as the club's highest paid player. Gareth Bale (€15m) and Sergio Ramos (€11.8m) are both paid significantly less than what Pogba earns at United.
