Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid are interested in a swap deal involving forward Gareth Bale according to the latest reports from the British media.
Real Madrid are in the middle of a transfer splurge this summer and senior club officials are ready to recoup some of the money spent on new players by offloading the players on the transfer list.
Gareth Bale is one of those players with the Welsh international player deemed to be surplus to requirements at Real Madrid this summer.
According to the specific publication from the Daily Star, Real Madrid are open to the idea of a swap deal that would see Gareth Bale join Manchester United in exchange for Paul Pogba.
Manchester United are not the only clubs linked with Gareth Bale who joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 in a then world-record deal worth £85.3m.
The 29-year-old attacker joined Real Madrid from North London giants Tottenham Hotspur and he has been linked with a move back to the club.
Bale has also been touted as a possible transfer addition to the playing squad at Chelsea who have a two-window transfer window hanging over their head.
Chelsea have already appealed the transfer ban ruling at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
