Real Madrid will have to pay a record transfer fee if they want to sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish newspaper Marca is reporting that the Spanish club will have to cough up around £162m if they want to sign the 26-year-old this summer.

The same report says that Manchester United do not want to sell Pogba this summer and that is making it tricky for the Spanish side when it comes to landing the France international.

Pogba’s situation at Old Trafford has been a constant source of speculation this summer, and the World Cup winner has been regularly linked with a move away from the club.

However, the midfielder has now reported back to his club and is currently in Australia with his team-mates for their pre-season tour.

The same story says that Pogba is hoping to be able to convince Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to let him leave and join Real Madrid this summer.

It also says that Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is a keen admirer of the France international, who re-joined Manchester United for a world-record transfer fee back in the summer of 2016.
