Paul Pogba might be the final piece to Real Madrid’s La Liga title puzzle…
Despite two Champions League titles in the last three years, the La Liga title has eluded Real Madrid since 2012. It may never escape their grasp again though if they can retain their trio of forwards and add Juventus megastar Paul Pogba into the mix. To that end, Real Madrid are prepared to swap one of their most talented players to secure the French ace’s transfer.
According to the Daily Mail Online, Real Madrid are prepared to offer attacking midfielder Isco to Juventus in exchange for Pogba.
The 23-year-old Pogba is rated at £65-95 million in cash alone, so player swaps have long been proposed as a method prying the French superstar at a lower potential fee.
24-year-old Isco has largely been a disappointment since his high-profile move to Los Blancos in 2013. In 149 total appearances he has just 22 goals.
Isco and Pogba are both recipients of the prestigious Golden Boy award, winning the Under-21 title in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
