Real Madrid have decided not to sign Paul Pogba away from Juventus, according to Sky Sports. Los Blancos don't want to spend the €130 million that would require a deal for the French midfielder and Manchester United appear ready to complete the signing of the Juventus star.

The Italian club wanted to get at least €100 million for the transfer and Pogba's agent Mino Raiola wanted a big contract for the French midfielder as well.

Here's what Sky Sports reported about Pogba, United and Real Madrid.

However, when taking into account add-ons and bonuses related to the success of the player and the club - as well as Raiola's fee - the total amount United could pay for Pogba's transfer could reach over £105m (€123m).

That doesn't include the salary of the player, which could exceed the €10 million/year if he finally decides to leave Juventus and join United this summer.
