Real Madrid are tempted by the prospect of swapping Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale for Manchester United star Paul Pogba this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet Don Balon, as quoted by TEAMtalk, is reporting that Manchester United have contacted the Spanish giants to see if they would be open to letting either Bale or Ronaldo move to Old Trafford this summer in exchange for midfielder Pogba.

Pogba’s future has been something of a source of speculation at Old Trafford in recent weeks due to his mixed form for Manchester United last season.

The 25-year-old France international came in for plenty of criticism last term as he struggled to produce consistent displays throughout the campaign for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Manchester United are reportedly keen to bring in Ronaldo or Bale this summer, but the same story says that the Red Devils would have to “sacrifice” Pogba to make a deal happen.

The same article claims that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is “extremely tempted” by the prospect of a swap deal involving Pogba.

Bale’s future at Real Madrid has been a source of speculation this summer after the Wales international admitted that he would be considering his future in the wake of the Champions League final.
