Real Madrid would be willing to offer James Rodriguez in exchange for Paul Pogba, reports say.

Pogba was heavily linked with a move to Real during the summer and failed in an attempt to force through a switch to the Bernabeu after publicly declaring he wanted to leave Manchester United.

The Red Devils stood firm in their £179million asking price and will reportedly stick to the valuation when the January transfer window opens as Pogba again seeks to leave.

Spanish outlet El Desmarque confirm Real remain interested in Pogba and club president Florentino Perez is ready to offload Rodriguez.

The Colombia international has struggled to live up to his pricetag in his five years at Real and his agent Jorge Mendes is keen to move his player on.

Real are prepared to sell Rodriguez and see the playmaker as a potential makeweight in a deal to sign Pogba.

Rodriguez’s exit could come in January, although Real have a big task on their hands to convince United to part ways with Pogba mid-way through a season.

Christian Eriksen is another target for Real and the prospect of signing the Dane in January is viewed as much more likely than Pogba, due to Tottenham’s issues in recent months.

Wolverhampton star Ruben Neves is also an option for Real and Rodriguez’s agent has a close relationship with the Premier League club as a trusted adviser.

While Real weigh up what to do with Rodriguez, Pogba is currently sidelined with injury.

The Frenchman has been out of action since the end of September with an ongoing ankle issue and is not expected to return from injury until December.
