Paul Pogba's huge wage demands are reportedly blocking his move to Real Madrid, according to reports in France. 

The French international is said to be keen on moving to Spain and join his countryman; Zinedine Zidane at Madrid

The reports suggest that Pogba is demanding an excess of €15m-a-year (£13m-a-year), something that is not going down well with the club's administration as it does not go in line with their wage system. 

Madrid are reportedly said to have captured one of their longest targets in Eden Hazard, and Zidane will now push for a transfer for his fellow countryman. 

Pogba has cut a frustrated figure in recent matches for United, with many quarters reporting that he was not settled at the club and was trying to find a way out. 

He fuelled these claims when he admitted to having an interest in working with Zidane and playing for 'the biggest club' in Europe. 

"Like I’ve always said, Real Madrid is a dream for anyone. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world," the French said at the end of March.

"There is also Zidane as a coach and it’s a dream for anybody who likes football. ‘For now, I’m at Manchester," he added.

Zidane has also made his admiration for Pogba known, and he might convince the Madrid hierarchy to cross the line for his signature.
