Florentino Perez and Real Madrid are always used to doing what they want and getting all the stars they set their eyes on, something that’s not actually a surprise considering the team’s prestige and historical success.
That being said, it’s pretty obvious that they’re just not going to give up so easily on their pursuit for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, Zinedine Zidane’s biggest desire for the summer.
That’s why, according to The Express, Real Madrid would be more than willing to include as much as two players to sweeten their bid for the World Cup winner.
As per the report, both Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos would be heading to Old Trafford in order to get Zidane his next starting midfielder.
However, Los Blancos would also be forced to pay as much as £70m (€78m/$88m) for his services in one of the most lopsided deals we could think of right away.
Toni Kroos is coming off his worst season since completing his move from Bayern Munchen to Real Madrid, but he’s still one of the best defensive and creative midfielders in the world and is quite young as well.
Gareth Bale, on the other hand, has dug himself into a huge hole at Santiago Bernabeu, as he miserably failed to fill in the shoes of Cristiano Ronaldo, who shook their supporters by leaving the team to join Juventus last season.
Both players have been longtime targets for Manchester United, and Pogba has reportedly let them know that he’s poised to make an exit anyway, so this might as well be the best offer they could get in return for his services.
After securing the signings of Eder Militao, Rodrygo, Eden Hazard, Ferland Mendy, and Luka Jovic, bringing Pogba to Spain’s capital would definitely be the cherry on top of the sundae on an almost perfect offseason for Los Blancos.
