There is no doubt that Manchester United’s injured star Paul Pogba is in demand by multiple teams across Europe, but he might not be leaving anytime soon due to his high wages.

Juventus director Fabio Paratici has said transfer target Paul Pogba will struggle to find a club willing to match his wages at Manchester United due to the financial impact caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

Pogba left United for Juve then returned in a then world-record £89.3 million transfer, and while Juventus are keen to have him back, Paratici warned the impact of the coronavirus means few clubs will be able to sign a player on such a high salary.

“He [Pogba] is a great player, but he will struggle to find someone who can pay his wages,” Paratici told Sky Sport Italia.

Real Madrid have also been linked to the World Cup winning midfielder but like Juventus, their transfer goals have changed due to huge financial losses.
