Paul Pogba’s mooted move to Real Madrid is “practically done”, according veteran Spanish journalist, Eduardo Inda, who claims the Manchester United midfielder will accept a three-million-euro-a-year pay cut to make the move happen.
Pogba’s Premier League colleague, Eden Hazard of Chelsea, who has also been hotly tipped to make the move to the Spanish capital, made similar winks towards Madrid back in October, saying: “I don’t want to lie today. It [playing for Real] is my dream since I was a kid.”
And in his weekly segment on Spanish football show ‘El Chiringuito de Jugones’, Inda assured that both players are Bernabéu-bound this summer.
Adidas pushing hard for Pogba-Madrid move
“The first to appear will be Hazard and the next will be Pogba,” said Inda. “He has agreed to reduce his Manchester United salary: from 15 (million euros net) per year to 12 million.”
Inda also claimed that his sponsor Adidas was pushing hard for the deal as he “is one of the brand’s major players.”
“I think we are talking about [a fee] between 156 and 170 million (euros),” he added.
