Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba has been linked with a swap deal with Real Madrid for Gareth Bale.
Pogba arrived United from Juventus on a five-year contract worth £89.3 million in 2016, breaking the world record held by Bale with his £85.2 million move from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013.
Spanish news outlet, Don Balon said United manager, Jose Mourinho is willing to swap Pogba with Bale this summer since Bale revealed that he might be leaving Madrid after the Champions League final win over Liverpool.
Pogba, 25, has been very vocal about his unpleasant relationship with Mourinho in the past few months.
In recent comments, he said,“He [i.e Mourinho] put me on the bench, I answered on the pitch, I give my maximum every time. There are times when I wasn’t playing. I was on the bench. Much has been spoken about. People thought it was wrong but a coach and player don’t have to be best friends.
“It made me grow in leadership. I had the armband with Mourinho, it was the first time in a club.
“It’s important to me, it makes me grow up to be as a leader in the France team.
“Stay at United? You’re never sure of anything. Contractually, it’s on, yes.
“Walking on the Parc des Princes? With a club, no for sure. Honestly, it doesn’t appeal to me.
“I grew up here, my father was a supporting Marseille and so did my mum. Paris wasn’t really in my daily life.”
