With Zinedine Zidane understood to be keen on buying Paul Pogba, Real Madrid could reportedly offer three of their players in a potential swap deal for Manchester United's record signing.

The Spanish giants are believed to be close to completing a transfer for Eden Hazard, who seemingly bid farewell to Chelsea after the UEFA Europa League final last week.
According to The Sunday Times, who cited a senior Madrid source, an agreement is already in place for the Belgian. It has been claimed the Blues will receive a fee of €110 million (R1.8 billion) plus another €15 million (R244 million) in performance-related add-ons.
However, Hazard is not the only Premier League star on Zidane's wish list – the French manager also reportedly wants Pogba at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Los Blancos president Florentino Perez, though, is believed to not be keen on splashing out more than €100 million (R1.6 billion) on another player, and is prepared to use at least one Real star as bait.
As a consequence, Los Blancos are reportedly keen to include Gareth Bale, who has fallen out of favour at the Santiago Bernabeu and is on Zidane's axe list, in any potential deal for Pogba.
The Welshman was a target for United vice-chairman Ed Woodward in the past, and Real want to get him off their wage bill, even though the player himself seems keen on seeing out the next three years of his contract.
James Rodriguez and Keylor Navas are the other two players the Spanish side could use to sweeten the Pogba deal, according to The Sunday Times' Madrid source.
Rodriguez will reportedly return from his two-year loan at Bayern Munich, with the German side deciding against activating their €42 million (R684 million) purchase option for the Colombian.
Navas, meanwhile, has ended up on the club's exit list after Real decided to make Thibaut Courtois their undisputed No. 1. The Costa Rican could interest United as successor for David de Gea, who is yet to extend his deal at Old Trafford.
