Immediate past European champions Real Madrid are said to be plotting a swap deal for long-term transfer target Paul Pogba.
The Manchester United midfielder has a lot of admirers at Real Madrid especially manager Zinedine Zidane who tried to engineer a move for his compatriot in the summer but was unable to achieve this target due to several reasons including finance.
Manchester United wanted Real Madrid to break the bank for Paul Pogba but that was not possible considering the fact that Los Merengues had slashed around £300m for transfers.
Paul Pogba stayed at Manchester United for this season despite his desire to leave the club in the summer as revealed by him during an interview on the Adidas tour of Japan.
