The 2013 Golden Boy winner and former Juventus superstar has been the subject of reported interest from Los Blancos over the past few months, and speculation was further fuelled when both Pogba and Real coach Zidane spoke of their admiration for one another in recent weeks.

Spanish publication El Confidencial recently reported that Real are expected to acquire a few big-name signings for next season, with Pogba being identified as one of the transfer targets.

According to Fredric Calenge, a journalist for French television programme Telefoot, an agreement has now been reached between the two clubs, which is likely to see Pogba don a Real jersey in 2019/20.

"Talks are in advanced stages," he told Telefoot when discussing the France star's potential move to Spain.

The Red Devils are said to be demanding a fee of €150 million (R2.4 billion) for the player's services, who is said to be earning €17 million (R272 million) a season at Old Trafford.

Should the 26-year-old complete a move to Real and remain on the same salary he is on at United, he would become the highest paid player in Zidane's side.
