Manchester United star Paul Pogba would be willing to take a pay-cut to join Real Madrid.
The World Cup winner looked solemn as he joined United on their preseason tour of Australia on Sunday.
Both Pogba and his agent, Mino Raiola, have declared publicly that he wants to leave United this summer.
Real Madrid is his preferred destination over former club Juventus.
However, the 26-year-old’s €15 million annual salary could prevent a deal from being finalised.
The amount would put Pogba on the same level as captain Sergio Ramos.
Le10Sport says the Frenchman would be willing to take a pay-cut in order to force through a move.
The two clubs are yet to agree on a fee for Pogba, with United holding on to hope that they can retain their academy graduate.
