TEAMTalk are reporting that Man Utd are willing to make £89.3 million man Paul Pogba makeweight in a swap deal that would bring Real Madrid's Gareth Bale to Old Trafford.

Spanish publication Don Balon are similarly claiming that José Mourinho's patience with the French midfielder has run out and he's looking for an injection of fresh talent to launch a proper title push next season. That could see Pogba, who has had an indifferent campaign with the Red Devils, land on his feet by moving to the record-breaking Champions League winners.

The move would also give Bale a route back into the Premier League; he himself has struggled to make an impact in Spain recently, but did score a wonder goal during the recent Champions League final against Liverpool.


There are no reports of any money changing hands between both clubs. Instead, it'd be a straight up swap that'd see Pogba head to Madrid and Bale come into Manchester. If the move goes through, then it's hardly the worst move for either man this summer.
