Real Madrid are ready to offer 5 players in exchange for Midfielder Paul Pogba, according to the latest transfer reports.
Paul Pogba is a long term target for Zinedine Zidane who has openly spoken about his love for the 26-year-old.
Pogba, meanwhile, would also like a move to the Bernabeu, preferably this summer window, after his agent Mino Raiola was snapped with Florentino Perez recently.
According to the reports, Pogba is being valued at 150 Million Pounds by Manchester United.
With Real Madrid already in negotiations with Chelsea for the transfer of Eden Hazard, the Spanish club is unwilling to pay that kind of money for the Frenchman.
However, Perez is ready to offer at least one of these players in order to sweeten the deal for Ed Woodward and co.
The Welshman has fallen out of favour under Zidane and he could be one of the options to bring down the cash. The 29-year-old is said to be interested in the move to the Old Trafford too.
After spending 2 years out on loan at Bayern Munich, James is back but still unwanted at Real Madrid. Hes another name who could be used as a makeweight for the Pogba deal.
With David De Gea still unwilling to sign a contract extension, Man United are in a need of a class goalkeeper.
Real Madrid have already got Thibaut Courtois which means Navas could be the one to make way, hence available.
Theo Hernandez is another name that has been thrown around the mix. We are still not sure if Manchester United would be interested in him though.
Isco is another player linked but Zinedine Zidane is said to be interested in keeping him at Real.
Meanwhile, Man United legend Paul Ince has come into the defense of Paul Pogba:
“People will talk about Paul Pogba and say he should’ve done more.
“But, there’s only so much he can do when he’s surrounded by the kind of players he is.
“If he was surrounded by class players, you’d get to see the real Pogba.
“I was fortunate enough to play with the likes of Bryan Robson, Roy Keane and Eric Cantona – world class players – and they make everyone play better.
“United can’t just rely on Pogba and expect that he will do everything, people have to pull their weight and be great around him.
“Pogba needs and deserves to be in a team full of top players, and I don’t believe that’s Man United at the minute.
“When they’re in the Champions League you realise that a lot of their players just aren’t good enough.”
