Real Madrid prepare to offer Manchester United £42m plus Vinicius Junior in the hope of landing Paul Pogba in January, according to a report.

Real Madrid are reportedly preparing to offer Manchester United £42m plus Brazilian attacker Vinicius Junior in the hope of landing Paul Pogba during the January transfer window.

Los Blancos were strongly linked with Pogba during the summer but were unable to get a deal for the France international over the line.

The Spanish giants continue to be credited with an interest, though, and according to El Desmarque, Zinedine Zidane's side are weighing up an offer ahead of next month's window.

The report claims that Madrid will offer £42m plus Vinicius, who has only managed one goal and one assist in 11 appearances for the capital giants during the 2019-20 campaign.

The 19-year-old impressed for Zidane's side last term, though, finding the back of the net on seven occasions, in addition to providing 13 assists during his first campaign at the club.

Pogba, meanwhile, has not turned out for United since the end of September due to an ankle problem.

Juventus have also been linked with a move for the 2018 World Cup winner, although Madrid are seemingly still the favourites to complete a deal in 2020.
