Real Madrid will reportedly offer Gareth Bale plus £90million to Manchester United in an attempt to sign Paul Pogba.
Pogba has been regularly linked with a move to the Bernabeu, and admitted over the summer that he wanted to leave Old Trafford.
The French midfielder has struggled for the majority of his three years back at Manchester United with the Red Devils having paid Juventus £89m for him in 2016.
Juve were also linked with Pogba over the summer though Real Madrid’s interest has appeared to be stronger and more continuous.
And now Spanish outlet eldesmarque claim that Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez will try to get Pogba by offering Bale plus 100 million euros.
It’s reported that Bale is seen as being worth around £75m, meaning the total deal is likely to be over £150m.
United were believed to be wanting that figure during the summer for Pogba, though manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was keen to keep the World Cup winner in his squad.
Indeed, the Norwegian has regularly sung the praises of the Old Trafford academy graduate since taking over as boss last December.
Just last month he said: “I don’t listen to the president of Real Madrid [Perez]. But Paul is working hard here and he is totally committed to Manchester United.
