In addition, there have recently been rumors of an unexpected option that would allow Real Madrid and Manchester United to swap players in case negotiations with Raiola prove unsuccessful.
The English side is interested in inviting defender Rafael Varane and does not want to overpay since his contract with Real Madrid expires in a year. Especially considering that United are planning to splurge heavily on acquiring Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

To invite the top сentre-back, the English Premier League club is considering the inclusion of 28-year-old Paul Pogba in the deal. The Frenchman himself is very interested in a move, especially taking into account the situation at the beginning of the 2020/2021 season, where it seemed that the player would leave the club already in the winter due to frustrating performances.
Back then, the player’s agent was saying that it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United.
In turn, Real Madrid need to refresh their midfield, as the key players are already quite aged. Nevertheless, the exchange of Varane is not part of the club`s plans, the Los Blancos will firstly consider offers from other interested parties to earn the money for the sale as they plan to buy Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappe.
- In the 2020/21 season, Pogba played 42 matches for Manchester United, scoring 6 goals and 9 assists.
- The player’s current contract with the club expires at the end of June 2022.
- Earlier it was rumored that the Frenchman’s agent, Mino Raiola, began pre-contract talks about a possible transfer of the player to PSG.
