Real Madrid are prepared to offer up to four players in an attempt to land Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba, according to reports.
The France international has not played for Man Utd since Boxing Day after suffering a setback to foot surgery earlier in the season but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently confirmed he was looking forward to welcoming Pogba and Marcus Rashford back into the squad if the Premier League resumes.
Pogba tried to force through a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid last summer, and his former club Juventus are also thought to be interested.
There are still rumours that Pogba could leave for Real in the next transfer window and now The Sun claims that Real are so ‘desperate’ to land Pogba that they ‘could offer Manchester United four big-name stars’.
Man Utd maintain Pogba is ‘not for sale’ but Real Madrid ‘feel a swap deal is an option’ despite Solskjaer keen to pair Pogba with Bruno Fernandes in midfield.
Real are willing to sacrifice Martin Odegaard, James Rodriguez, Lucas Vazquez and Brahim Diaz as they look to offer up to four players in a part-exchange deal.
Meanwhile, former Real Madrid midfielder Uli Stielike recently urged the club to pursue “humble players” over the Man Utd midfielder.
Stielike told Spanish publication AS: “If you want to return to the idea of the galacticos, maybe yes. But I am more in favour of humble players with great talent and sacrifice for the team.”
