Real Madrid are “eager” to include Gareth Bale in any deal to sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United this summer, according to reports in the Spanish media.

Spanish newspaper Marca, as quoted by the Daily Mail is reporting that the Spanish side are looking to offload the Wales international this summer as they look to try and sign the Frenchman from the Red Devils.

The same story says that Zinedine Zidane wants to get rid of Bale this summer and is “desperate” to bring 26-year-old France midfielder Pogba to the Bernabeu.

However, the article says that Real Madrid could have difficulty in landing the midfielder, because they don’t want to sell their prized asset unless their £150m valuation is met.

According to the same story, Real Madrid are set to propose a cash-plus-player deal to land Pogba, with Bale heading in the other direction.

Manchester United were linked with a move to sign Bale earlier this summer, but they have since distanced themselves from the Welshman, according to the same story.

Meanwhile, Pogba’s future continues to be a source of uncertainty after Manchester United’s failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
