Paul Pogba has made his desire to leave Manchester United very clear this summer, but he could still receive a giant loyalty bonus from the club.

The Frenchman declared that he wants a new challenge which has stoked rumours of either a switch to Real Madrid or a return to former club Juventus.

United are keen to keep hold of their record signing despite this being the second consecutive summer that he has agitated for a move away from the club.

Despite this seemingly being a one-sided relationship, Pogba is set to be given the loyalty bonus of £3.78m on 1 July as part of his five-year contract, according to Mail Online.

It is a payment that increases each year, with the World Cup winner pocketing £3.46m at the same time in 2018.

United could still cash in on the midfielder and not have to pay the bonus, but they are looking for an enormous transfer fee of £150m from Real Madrid for Pogba.

Pogba would be a huge investment, and given his recent record of unrest, former Real president Ramon Calderon has warned Zidane of risking huge money on the Frenchman.

I think it is risky, Calderon told SunSport. Its dangerous because he has proven his behaviour is not the best in some moments for a club like Real Madrid.
