The Sun are reporting that Pogba is demanding a weekly wage of £500,000-a-week, with the World Cup winner wanting parity with current highest earner Alexis Sanchez.

Should United not match his terms, Pogba is believed to interested in joining the Spanish giants, with Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane targeting the midfielder as he plots a summer rebuild at the Bernabeu.

Madrid are set for significant investment this summer following a disappointing campaign, with Pogba and Chelsea star Eden Hazard believed to head of their transfer list.
