Paul Pogba’s proposed move to Real Madrid is ‘practically done’ according to a leading Spanish journalist.
The Manchester United midfielder has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid, and did little to calm the speculation when he described a move to the Bernabeu as ‘a dream’ when asked about the rumours back in March.
With Manchester United preparing themselves for a drastic summer overhaul, former head of Spanish newspaper MARCA, Eduardo Inda, has claimed that a deal to take the World Cup winner to Spain is ‘practically done,’ with Pogba having agreed to cut his wages.
“Pogba is practically done,” Inda said on El Chiringuito de Jugones.
“The first to appear will be Eden Hazard and the next will be Pogba.
“He has agreed to lower his Manchester United salary: from £13m net per year to £10m.
“Adidas is pressing a lot because he is one of the two franchise players of the brand.”
While Manchester United are thought to be keen to keep their £89 million man, it has been claimed that they will allow him to leave if they receive a bid of £120m, and if the player submits a transfer request.
