Manchester United are reportedly looking forward to completing their move for Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale in January, even if it means losing Paul Pogba to the Galacticos.
The Welshman is set to end his spell with the Santiago outfit in January due to the obvious unhealthy relationship he has with coach Zinedine Zidane.
The former Tottenham star is being linked with the Red Devils and reports are tipping Solskjaer to reach an agreement with the Spanish giants for his services.
However, Solskjaer can’t sign the Welshman without losing Pogba as via The Sunday Mirror revealed that Zidane will release Bale only if Solskjaer and his employers are ready to let go of the former Juventus midfielder.

Pogba has been a major transfer target for Zidane in recent transfer periods, and the manager is hoping to see United accept his swap deal proposal.
Pogba, who is currently out of action due to injury, had already revealed his desire and readiness for new challenges but he might need to wait till the end of the season before his request is granted by the executives.
This is because Solskjaer will definitely turn down the chance to lose a player of Pogba quality in the middle of the season when the Premier League will get more physical, challenging and more intensified.
