The latest reports have claimed that La Liga giants Real Madrid are looking to exchange midfield gem Isco Alarcon instead of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in the summer transfer window.
Manchester United had quite a torrid season in the Premier League as they finished in sixth place on the table. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already made a splash in the summer transfer window and wants to add more players to his team in order to get United back to the summit of English football.
Although club talisman Paul Pogba has played an instrumental part for Manchester United over the past season or so, he has also come under heavy criticism by some of the fans and the media as well. If push comes to shove, the Norwegian boss could decide to sell the 26-year-old World Cup winning French midfielder in order for a player who can help the club on an overall basis.
Pogba has been linked heavily with a move away from Old Trafford this summer and Real Madrid is keeping close tabs on the midfielder. Having already signed Eden Hazard, the Los Blancos might not have enough to spend in order to lure Pogba at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has insisted that he wants to get rid of Spanish midfielder Isco Alcaron even though manager Zinedine Zidane wants to keep him at the club. But Zidane has also hinted at the possibility of Pogba joining Real Madrid and this could ensure that a swap deal takes place between the two players.
Madrid is also willing to sweeten the deal by lending £40 million along with Isco in order to convince the English giants to send Pogba the other way. Isco has spent six seasons at Real Madrid but has struggled to find a regular starting berth but the Spanish international might decide a new challenge as well.
Pogba has shown that he is a great individual player on the field but Isco plays more for the team. United could do well with a player like Isco if they are looking to build a strong team and Pogba should do well at Real Madrid because it has been his dream move.
