Real Madrid have reignited their interest in signing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba this summer, and have offered up a list of players for the Red Devils to choose from in exchange. That’s according to a report in The Sun, which claims United are considering letting the Frenchman leave.
Pogba’s future is still up in the air ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Frenchman will be entering into the final 12 months of his contract this summer, but United have the option to extend his deal for another year.
Madrid have been heavily linked with him in the past, and now it appears they are ready to make another move to sign him.
The Sun claims Madrid are currently contemplating making a formal bid to sign the French midfielder, and will try to tempt United into a player exchange deal.

The La Liga giants will reportedly offer up four players for United to choose from in an attempt to get a potential transfer fee reduced.
Those players are Martin Odegaard, James Rodriguez, Lucas Vazquez and Brahim Diaz.
Madrid are set for a mass exodus this summer and have been tipped to sell up to 11 members of their senior squad.
Having spent £275million on new players last year, Madrid will likely have to offload players in order to bring anyone in.

The Sun claims United will consider letting Pogba leave this summer in order to fund a move to sign Jadon Sancho.
United took out a £140m loan in order to continue splashing the cash in the upcoming window, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to sign Sancho and Jack Grealish.
And former United midfielder Paul Ince believes it could be in the Red Devils’ best interests to let Pogba leave.
“We all got bored of Pogba and his agent conducting their business through the media a long time ago and Solskjaer needs to bring it to an end,” he said.

“Pogba is not a young player any more. He is a World Cup winner and clearly a class player when he is at his best.
“But when was the last time we saw him at his best? In fact, has he ever been at his best since he came back to United?
“It was easier for him when he was playing in Italy. Juventus were winning the Italian title every year and maybe he could get away with the odd bad game, the odd mistake here and there, but that won’t work in the Premier League.
“I played in Italy and can see why Pogba would fit in there. The speed of their game is slower, you can lose the ball and not get punished for it, but there is an intensity to the Premier League and that makes it special.”
