Paul Pogba to Real Madrid: Zidane set to include two stars including Toni Kroos in a huge swap deal for Manchester United’s star midfielder, Paul Pogba.
Paul Pogba’s transfer has been a huge bone of contention this summer. Manchester United do not want to let go of their star player. Pogba on the other hand, has made it more than obvious that he is done with the Manchester club.
Speaking on an Adidas promotional tour of Tokyo last month, Pogba said:
“For me I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great; some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody. Like everywhere else. After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well. I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else. I am thinking of this: to have a new challenge somewhere else.”

Juventus have jumped at the opportunity to being the France international back to Turin. However, Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda believes that Paul Pogba will complete his move to Real Madrid from Manchester United instead.
He believes that the deal may happen next week itself. He further adds that Juve is just “a trick” from Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola to get more money for his client.

While speaking with Spanish TV station El Chiringuito. Inda said:
“The Juventus thing is a trick of Raiola to raise the price. The only favorable thing for Pogba to go to Juventus is taxation. I think that next week, Pogba will be a new Real Madrid player. The issue is very advanced, Madrid offers €80m in cash plus Bale, which they estimate is worth €90m.”
While Inda did not mention Toni Kroos, TalkSPORT claim that Inda also says that German midfielder Toni Kroos will also be part of the huge swap deal.
