The rumors have been flying high for quite some time that Manchester United striker Paul Pogba could be Real Madrid bound.
They seem to have taken pace as it is now being reported that Los Blancos could go for a swap deal with United.
The player rumored to be swapped is none other than prolific striker Gareth Bale.
Here are other details.
Pogba was putting up a good show under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as he got regular starts with the side.
However, his string of inconsistent outings has put his relationship with Solskjaer in jeopardy.
With rumors flying in that Pogba might be slowly falling out of Solskjaer's good books, he might be contemplating a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Ever since Pogba expressed his desire to work with Zinedine Zidane, it is being said that Pogba is Madrid bound.
Also, United have had their eyes on Bale for a long time, and it is sure they will eye him in exchange.
Meanwhile, reports from Spain have said that Madrid are ready to let go of Bale in exchange for Pogba.
While Bale is one of the top players of the game in the world, he has struggled to produce the goods for Madrid this term.
After the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale has struggled to make an impact.
Following Madrid's premature exit from the Champions League, it is being rumored that new manager Zinedine Zidane is willing to offload Bale.
Although Bale might be unsettled in Madrid for the past two years, he has achieved enough at the club to make a name for himself.
With four UCL titles, along with a title each in La Liga, Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup, followed by three UEFA Super Cups and four FIFA Club World Cups, he has a dream resume.
Madrid have placed a humongous price tag of £113 mn on Bale.
This is being done to discourage United from pursuing him. As per the reports, Los Blancos want the swap deal rather than the cash from United.
Interestingly, United have been breaking the bank for good players, and it won't be a surprise if they do decide to acquire the Welshman.
