MANCHESTER UNITED midfielder Paul Pogba has reportedly been offered to Real Madrid by his agent Mino Raiola.
The 28-year-old is in the final year of his contract at Old Trafford and it remains to be seen whether he will extend his stay in England.
It had been claimed last month that the World Cup winner is 'more likely' to pen a new deal following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.
But according to Spanish news outlet El Nacional, his agent Raiola is trying to convince Los Blancos to snap him in 2022.
They state that the ex-Juventus ace, who can speak to foreign clubs about a summer move in the New Year, is keen to play in LaLiga in the future.
Barcelona have been linked with securing Pogba'a services, but he would have to take a huge pay cut in order to join the Blaugrana.
And El Nacional have confirmed that Raiola has been in contact with the Catalan club's president Joan Laporta.
But Barca cannot afford to bring him to the Nou Camp, leaving Raiola to allegedly try and persuade Real to sign the four-time Serie A champion.

Paris Saint-Germain are understood to remain keen on Pogba after failing to bring him to Parc des Princes in the recent transfer window.
But Real are believed to be the frontrunners should the player decide to seek a new challenge away from the Premier League.
Carlo Ancelotti's side are in need of new midfielders with Luka Modric in the last year of his deal at the Bernabeu.
Meanwhile Toni Kroos is tied down until 2023, and Real could decide to cash in on him.
Should Pogba link up with Real, he could partner French compatriot Eduardo Camavinga, who linked up with the Madrid outfit in August.
Raphael Varane has urged Pogba to remain with the Red Devils, as he said: "It is of course his decision, but of course I hope he stays here for a long time.
"He is a fantastic player, so undoubtedly I hope he stays.
“He did not have to convince me that I should move here, but I talked to him about the club to find out what it is like to be here day-to-day.
“It was important for me to hear his opinions and thoughts about the club, the team and their ambitions.”
