Real Madrid are reportedly considering offering Gareth Bale in any deal to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
Bale has endured an indifferent campaign at the Bernabeu, and the return of head coach Zinedine Zidane may not help the Welshman's efforts to hold down a regular role in the starting lineup.
However, Real's reunion with Zidane could help their cause when it comes to Pogba, and according to AS, the Spanish giants may be prepared to put together a part-exchange deal.
Pogba has just over two years remaining on his contract at Old Trafford, and the 26-year-old suggested earlier this week that he is open to a future move to Real.
Bale is said to be happy with life in Spain, but it remains to be seen whether the forward would be prepared to return to the Premier League if United were given permission to hold discussions.
