Super agent Mino Raiola has hinted at a summer swap deal involving Paul Pogba and Eden Hazard.
Pogba has been constantly linked with a move away from Manchester United ever since he re-joined the club from Juventus in 2016.
The controversial midfielder has 13 months remaining on his current deal and spoke of his desire for a ‘new challenge’ as far back as 2019.
Hazard, meanwhile, has struggled with injuries since swapping Stamford Bridge for the Bernabeu in the same year and could benefit from a fresh start.
Raiola spoke about Pogba’s future in an interview with AS and suggested a swap deal with Hazard could be one way of his client finally making the move to Real Madrid.
Pressed whether Pogba moving to Madrid was impossible his agent told AS: "I do not know.
“I think that nothing is impossible, but football depends on the day. As it is. And you have to be flexible to think of all the possibilities.
“And if tomorrow Madrid wants to make a Hazard-Pogba change? It is just an example. And if all four parties like it, why not?”
Asked why Pogba hadn’t moved to the La Liga champions already, Raiola again rammed home his client’s desire to join Real.
He continued: “It is a question to ask Madrid.
“At one time Pogba felt a lot of love and trust from United, and there were several other clubs… Later, it is very difficult for United and Madrid to understand each other for a great transfer, because strong clubs do not want to sell strong players to other strong clubs.
