Cape Town - Real Madrid are reportedly willing to offer Toni Kroos to Manchester United as part of a deal to bring Paul Pogba to the Spanish capital.

Real have been chasing Pogba for some time but have so far been unable to wrap up a deal as the powers that be at United have refused to cash in on the Frenchman.

It has been suggested that United asked Pogba to give them one more season before granting the player his wish of a move away the following summer, with Real in the box seat to do a deal.

Whether that is just speculation or fact remains to be seen but Real are determined to get the midfielder on board and reports claim they are ready to offer Kroos as a sweetener.

Los Blancos officials are well aware that United hold an interest in the German midfielder, having enquired about him in the past and hope by offering the player and a substantial cash adjustment it could help to get the deal done.

Real have been linked with other midfielders but keep coming back to Pogba, who is Zinedine Zidane's number one target.

Other clubs including Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be in the hunt but it is thought that Pogba has set his heart on a move to the Bernabeu.

Kroos, 29, has only recently penned a new deal with Real but the club are happy for him to move on and there has even been talk he could leave when the window re-opens in January.
