Manchester United could reportedly be offered one of four quality Real Madrid players in a transfer exchange deal for Paul Pogba.
The France international has long been linked with a move away from Old Trafford for some time now, with plenty of recent speculation over his future.
Pogba is a world class talent on his day, but it’s just never quite clicked for him in his time in Manchester, so it could well be that any one of those players mentioned above would be an upgrade.
Bale would strengthen United’s underwhelming attack, even if his recent fitness record could be seen as a bit of a concern.
Meanwhile, Kroos or Modric could be ideal like-for-like replacements for Pogba in midfield, though Modric’s age mean he’d only be a short-term solution.
Finally, Isco could be a decent creative option further forward, giving MUFC a much-needed upgrade on struggling performers like Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard.
It remains to be seen what the Red Devils will decide, but one could imagine them being tempted by the players supposedly on offer from Madrid.
