According to Spanish media outlet AS, Los Blancos want to maintain 'a degree of harmony in the salary hierarchy' and unsure how the arrival Pogba would affect the dressing room.

AS claim that Pogba currently earns around £280,000 a week, a figure that would make him Los Blancos highest earner at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Spanish newspaper also claim it is more than captain Sergio Ramos, who pockets £196,000 a week, and Gareth Bale, who takes home £250,000 a week.

Pogba on the other hand, would be unwilling to take a pay-cut despite his interest from Madrid, which could cause problems with a potential summer transfer.

AS added that Real will face a battle to convince the Premier League club to sell Pogba as the United attempt to keep appease their fanbase after a largely disappointing season.

However, AS maintain that the former Juventus star remains a priority target for Zidane, who has been promised huge funds to improve his squad in the transfer window.
