Paul Pogba is determined to quit Manchester United this summer in order to pursue a summer move to Real Madrid, say reports.
A report in the Daily Telegraph claims the player is hopeful the Red Devils reduce their asking price for the star from £160m (€186m).
The 26-year-old is said to be disillusioned with life in Manchester and has told several teammates that he is hopeful of a change of club, with the outgoing European champions alerted over the situation.
Diario AS reported last month that the midfielder had already accepted a €12m-per-year salary from Los Blancos, in an attempt to accelerate a move.
The France international is said to be keen to complete the deal as soon as possible so that the deal does not become a saga, as his move to United from Juve in 2016 became.
He is thought to be unhappy with not being the top earner at Old Trafford following the deal concluded for Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal last year.
Previous reports in Spain claimed Pogba has a strong desire to win the Ballon d’Or and this would be out of his reach whilst still playing at Old Trafford.
The midfielder returned to United in the summer of 2016 from the Bianconeri in a €95m deal, which was then a world record.
