Manchester United are reportedly willing to exchange Paul Pogba with Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos.
Paul Pogba arrived at Manchester United a couple of seasons ago for a then world record fee of €105 million from Serie A giants Juventus back in 2016. However, it hasn’t been all smooth sailing for the French starlet who helped United win the League Cup as well as the Europa League on his return to the club that once set him free.
This season has arguably been worse as Pogba had been dropped on quite a few occasions which fueled speculation of a move away from Old Trafford in the summer. His reported breakdown with manager Jose Mourinho could be the root cause of Pogba leaving the club with two massive ego’s clashing together.
At 25, Pogba is still relatively young but his season so far has been full of ups and downs but a lot of top clubs in Europe are aware of his potential including La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid. And according to news outlet Don Balon, the ‘Special One’ is willing to let Pogba leave for the Santiago Bernabeu in exchange for Toni Kroos.
Apparently, Jose Mourinho is a massive admirer of the German midfield maestro Toni Kroos, who is probably on his way out of the Spanish capital. Kroos joined the Los Blancos back in 2014 after winning the FIFA World Cup with Germany. Since then he had helped Madrid in winning back to back Champions League titles as well as one La Liga title. He has managed four goals and six assists this season but there are rumors that a mass exodus of players would result in the 28-year-old leaving Madrid.
Mourinho has already lured in Chilean Alexis Sanchez from outcast Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the winter transfer window and could be in line to swoop up Kroos as well in a swap deal with Pogba. The former Bayern Munich playmaker would ideally fit in perfectly as Michael Carrick’s replacement as the Englishman is set to retire at the end of the term.
A deal between the two sides looks likely as Madrid and United are keen on revamping their players. Pogba has dreamed of playing at one of the major Spanish clubs and Kroos has also revealed his admiration for the Premier League outfit. So a swap deal would be the best result for both the European giants.
