Inter are one of the many clubs interested in signing Manchester United’s Paul Pogba as Spanish giants Real Madrid pull out of the race to sign the world champion, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Spanish newspaper AS.

The report details how the Spanish club have pulled out of the race to sign the 27-year-old French midfielder due to his incredibly high wages. Pogba earns €17 million net per season, a figure far too high for club president Florentino Perez, who instead has turned his attention on 17-year-old Rennes talent Eduardo Camavinga.

Juventus and Inter are both keen to sign Pogba, the report continues, as both clubs look to strengthen their midfield and assert dominance on the pitch next season. The Nerazzurri would be able to fund the deal for the Frenchman after selling both Argentine strikers Lautaro Martinez and Mauro Icardi. Pogba has only made eight appearances this season for the Red Devils after suffering from a series of ankle injuries.
