Man Utd could include Paul Pogba in swap transfer for Real Madrid's Raphael Varane as midfielder's contract talks stall
20th June 2021

MANCHESTER UNITED are prepared to offer Paul Pogba to Real Madrid in exchange for Raphael Varane, according to reports.

The France defender, 28, has been on United's radar for some time and is said to be one of the club's top targets this summer.

Previous managers Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho both wanted to bring Varane to Old Trafford.

Ed Woodward was even prepared to spend £100million on the defender in 2018, but never came close to striking a deal.

But Varane now reportedly prefers a move to United over PSG, and his representatives are keen to hold a meeting with the Red Devils.

And according to AS, via the Express, United could offer up Pogba in order to get a deal over the line.

United fear Pogba will not agree a new contract and leave on a free next summer.

The club had previously placed a £150million asking price on the midfielder to ward off interest from Juventus and Real Madrid.

Talks opened over a new contract for Pogba earlier this month, while the Italian press claim a swap deal involving Cristiano Ronaldo is also on the cards.

And United have reportedly had a £50m bid for Varane rejected by Los Blancos.

Meanwhile, both Pogba and Varane are concentrating on qualifying from Euro 2020 Group F with France.
