Juventus have launched a multi-player swap bid for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
Reports in Italy say Juve want to bring Pogba back to Turin just three years after his €105m transfer to Old Trafford.
Pogba had been pushing for Real Madrid, but as they spent big already on Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic, but there are fears that the Spanish giants could drop interest in Pogba leaving Juve as the more likely avenue.
But despite Juve’s interest, Reports in Spain indicate Real Madrid are also pushing the same swap deal for Pogba which could see Bale go to Old Trafford.
Real Madrid could offer Gareth Bale to Manchester United in return for Paul Pogba.
“The Spanish giants are considering using the Welshman as make-weight in a deal for the French World Cup winner,” the Daily Mirror reported.
Juve however aim to lower the price-tag significantly by including players in an exchange deal, with the likes of left-back Alex Sandro, winger Douglas Costa or forward Paulo Dybala all mentioned as makeweights.
Pogba enjoyed four years at Juve and is regular tourist in Turin visiting friends and former teammates, most recently last month at a party for Andrea Barzagli’s retirement.
