Real Madrid willing to include Odegaard in bid for Man Utd star Pogba

Real Madrid hope to convince Manchester United to part with Paul Pogba by offering a raft of players in exchange.

The Sun says Real could offer United four big-name stars including Martin Odegaard, currently on-loan with Real Sociedad, in a desperate bid to land Pogba.

Old Trafford maintain £89million record buy Pogba is not for sale but Real, also hit by the pandemic, feel a swap deal is an option.

And on top of Odegaard, 21, those who could also be offered in part exchange are James Rodriguez, Lucas Vazquez and ex-City midfielder Brahim Diaz.

But United sources say boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to pair Pogba with January arrival Bruno Fernandes — the duo training together for the first time yesterday.
