REAL MADRID are prepared to offer Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Keylor Navas to Manchester United in return for Paul Pogba, it has been reported.
Los Blancos chief Florentino Perez is said to be keen on the Frenchman but is unwilling to pay cash.
According to the Times, Real see it as an opportunity to offload Gareth Bale – who Zidane is not a fan of – as well as Rodriguez.
Both players earn significant salaries at the Bernabeu but are unlikely to be in Zidane’s plans.
It is not yet clear whether United are open to losing the World-Cup-winner but rumours of his imminent departure will not go away.
United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has tried to sign Bale in the past but it has proved difficult given his monstrous £600k-a-week wages.
Goalkeeper Navas is another name who looks likely to leave the Spanish capital.
The Costa Rican international is 32 and after the Spanish giants signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea he has struggled for game time.
