Marca quote The Independent in claiming that the Red Devils will demand more than 170 million euros for the 26-year-old World Cup winner, which is an amount Madrid is unlikely to pay for a player whose market value at the moment is 90 million euros.
More than United's inflated price-tag, Pogba's salary demands in order to move to Madrid is also proving to be a stumbling block in his move to the Spanish capital.
Madrid’s representatives could be expecting a long and hard negotiation process for Pogba that could drag on until the end of August...https://t.co/LSXeVHCclE— AS English (@English_AS) May 14, 2019
The report goes on to continue that Pogba wants to become the highest-paid player in the world, with a salary in the region of 575,000 euros.
Meanwhile, a report by ESPN a couple of weeks ago stated that Madrid, at the moment are not even ready to meet Pogba's salary that is being paid by Manchester United at the moment.
With Madrid not in a position to pay such a huge transfer fee for Pogba, the Spanish club hoped they could secure a player-plus-cash deal which would include Toni Kroos or Gareth Bale, but their hopes of landing Pogba have been dashed as United are not interested in either players at the moment.
