Manchester United will reportedly not consider selling Paul Pogba to Real Madrid unless they are offered Toni Kroos and Gareth Bale in return.
Pogba is once again at the centre of transfer speculation after admitting earlier this week that he would like to play for the Spanish giants.
The 26-year-old’s agent is said to have already been in contact with Real to get the ball rolling ahead of the summer, but Los Blancos have work to do if they are to convince United to sell.
Spanish outlet AS reports that Kroos and Bale are pivotal to any chance Zinedine Zidane’s side have of acquiring Pogba, who has returned to his best form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was brought in three-and-a-half months ago.
United are said to be after the duo to soften the blow of losing one of their key players, with Kroos effectively a like-for-like replacement in central midfield.
