Both players have been strongly linked with United in recent times, but it now looks as though the Red Devils have ruled themselves out of a big-money bid for Juventus star Pogba.
This could lead to Real landing the £80m-rated Frenchman, whose arrival could lead to player sales in a similar fashion to last summer when Angel di Maria was sold to help sign James Rodriguez.
Bale is a likely candidate after some indifferent form this season, and the Welshman is known to be a top priority target for United boss Louis van Gaal.
