Real Madrid To Swap Bale Or Isco Plus £72 Million Fee For Pogba

Real Madrid have reportedly opted to part ways with Isco or Gareth Bale plus £72 million in exchange for Manchester United’s troubled midfielder, Paul Pogba.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the prolific Champions League winning team who are currently rebuilding can’t see themselves matching the asking price for the World Cup winner and have asked to include a player in the deal.

The report suggests that the Spanish giants, Real Madrid were to submit a sum in the region of £134 million for Pogba but are now considering the possibility of including one of Bale and Isco in the deal.

Nevertheless, they have indicated that they will only make a move for the former Juventus man if he tables a transfer request himself with Manchester United under no serious pressure to send him off.

Norwegian gaffer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on keeping the 26 year old at Old Trafford this summer and the Red devils hope to keep him at the centre of their rebuilding process having gone through their youth ranks before being shipped off to Juventus.

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has repeatedly indicated that Gareth Bale isn’t in his plans for the coming season with Madrid looking to take him off the wage bill.

It still remains unseen whether Manchester United will be willing to add Bale to their ranks with the Welsh player expected to cause more wage issues for their already inflated wage bill.

However, the club could be tempted with switching Pogba for Isco especially if they succeed in signing the duo of Bruno Fernandes and Newcastle’s Longstaff with the Magoies valuing the later at £50 million.

Paul Pogba via agent has revealed that he is unhappy at Manchester United and would be looking to ply his trade elsewhere most likely in another country.
