Real Madrid Have Four Potential Players To Include In Paul Pogba Swap
Real Madrid are ready to offer Manchester United any one of four players in any potential move for Paul Pogba this summer, according to reports.
The French midfielder has been linked with leaving Old Trafford for sometime now and the rumours about whether he'll stay or go keep changing from one week to the next.
Real are one of the few likely destinations for Pogba should he decide to leave and the Spanish giants have a list of players who could go in the opposite direction.
Martin Odegaard, James Rodriguez, Lucas Vazquez and Brahim Diaz could all be used by Los Blancos to lower the World Cup winner's asking price, according to the Mirror.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would like to keep Pogba, and will be hoping to pair him with new signing Bruno Fernandes when football returns, but that might not be enough, if the former Juventus midfielder decides he wants to leave.
United would likely want at least as much as they paid the Old Lady for the 27-year-old in 2016, a club record £89 million, which the Spanish giants would want to bring down with the addition of at least one of their list in the deal.
The club, and manager Zinedine Zidane, look certain to try and off load James Rodriguez in the summer. The Colombian number 10 went out on loan to Bayern Munich for two years but the Bundesliga side decided against making the move permanent.

He has been unable to re-establish himself in Zidane's plans this season and will be sold in the summer, and has been linked to numerous clubs already.
Odegaard caused a huge stir in 2015 when he chose to sign for Real, after having the pick of Europe's elite clubs, but is still yet to break into the first team.
He's spent the past four years on loan, with Heerenveen, Vitesse and now Real Sociedad and at just 21 still has lots of potential.
Vasquez played 47 times in all competitions last season, often being ahead of Gareth Bale in the pecking order even when the Welshman was fit, but has started just six games this season.
Former Manchester City youngster Brahim Diaz moved from The Etihad to the Bernabeu for £15.5 million in January but his chances with the first team have been limited so far.
The 20-year-old has only 18 times in all competitions over a year, with many of those appearances off the bench late in games.
A return to Manchester for his former side's rivals seems highly unlikely, even if he's not getting any game time in the Spanish capital.
