​​Manchester United have reportedly shocked​ Real Madrid representatives by rejecting any chance of a swap deal in return for the transfer Paul Pogba.

​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.

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.
