Real Madrid to swap Gareth Bale for Paul Pogba, Maurizio Sarri to join Juventus, Ryan Sessegnon is wanted by Manchester United, and Arsenal cut their cloth.
Bale to be included in Pogba switch
Following the signing of Eden Hazard from Chelsea, announced on Friday evening, Real Madrid have Paul Pogba in their sights.
Zinedine Zidane wants to pull off the £130million transfer in addition to Hazard and Luka Jovic arriving, with Christian Eriksen another target. In order to get Pogba, Real will offer Gareth Bale to United to persuade them to sell the 26-year-old midfielder, according to the Mirror.
Paper Round’s view: Gareth Bale is still an excellent player, when he is fit, but given his age and injury record, it would be foolish to sign him permanently and on his current wages. The only way to sign him would be on a short term deal, or perhaps to swap him for Alexis Sanchez in order to give both problems at least a new problem rather than the same one next season.
