Newly-appointed Real Madrid head-coach Zinedine Zidane has reportedly set his sights on Manchester United playmaker Paul Pogba and Liverpool winger Sadio Mane as he plans offensive reinforcements ahead of 2019/20 season.
The Frenchman’s return to Santiago Bernabeu was confirmed earlier last week, less than 10 months on from walking from the Spanis giant after winning three consecutive Champions League trophies.
French football legend is rumoured to have been talked into a return to Santiago Bernabeu by president Florentino Perez, who has promised the iconic midfielder and a £300m transfer kitty.
The Blues forward Eden Hazard has already been heavily linked with a summer switch to the Spanish giants, and El Chiringuito TV reports that two other Premier League stars have been linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu.
The Merseyside Reds forward Sadio Mane is reportedly on the wishlist of Zinedine Zidane and Manchester United prolific midfielder Paul Pogba as both believed to be highly-rated by Zinedine Zidane, and the Los Blancos hope that their head-coach’s reputation – plus a huge sum of money – will help them to finalise the double swoop for the next season.
Zidane’s first game as the Real Madrid manager will be this weekend against Celta Vigo.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are reportedly keen on to agree on a cut-price deal for Sporting Lisbon playmaker Bruno Fernandes who has been one of the hottest prospects in Europe at the moment.
The 24-year-old has found back of the net 23 times and provided 13 assists for the Portuguese giants this campaign, leading to speculation that he has been wanted by Atletico Madrid, AC Milan and Liverpool’s direct Premier League rivals Manchester United.
According to the Mirror reports, though, Liverpool arch-rivals are trying to get the deal for Bruno Fernandes but Jurgen Klopp is confident to lure him at Anfield ahead of the next season
