Real Madrid will make a £150m bid for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba once Gareth Bale has moved on, according to a report.

Real Madrid will reportedly make a £150m bid for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba once Welsh attacker Gareth Bale has left the club.

Bale is believed to be on the verge of completing a move to Chinese Super League outfit Jiangsu Suning, with the 30-year-old tipped to sign a three-year contract at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre.

According to The Sun, once Bale has left the Bernabeu - freeing up £600,000 a week in wages - Madrid will launch a £150m move for Pogba in a bid to convince United to sell.

The Red Devils are said to be holding firm on their £170m valuation of the France international, but Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane recently claimed that "something could happen" regarding a potential swoop.

Madrid are believed to have become 'increasingly confident' that they will be able to complete a deal for the 26-year-old before this summer's transfer window closes for business.
