Zinedine Zidane has been in charge of Real Madrid for little more than 24 hours, but, as expected, the team already knows his demands for this summer.
The Frenchman is keen to fix the mess the team has become since his departure, but he’s well aware of the fact that they need to spend a lot of money in the summer if they want to go back to their winning ways.
That being said, Spanish outlet Sport already revealed the 5 players Zidane allegedly wants Real Madrid to sign this summer.
Apparently, Zizou’s biggest desire is to dress Eden Hazard in white, with the Belgian winger set to make a decision regarding his future at Stamford Bridge in the upcoming weeks.
Also, Zidane would like to sign three of his compatriots: Kyllian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Lucas Hernandez.
Mbappe had already shut down a move out of PSG, but him growing up as both a Real Madrid and a Zidane fan, things could change amid ‘The Magician’s’ appointment.
Moreover, signing Pogba could be kind of tricky, considering the midfielder is likely to stay put at Old Trafford unless the Red Devils fail to qualify for next year’s UEFA Champions League.
Lucas Hernandez is harder to get as he’s still under contract with city rivals Atletico Madrid and any deal between both parties seems extremely unlikely.
Moreover, Zidane is also intrigued by the possibility of signing Sadio Mane, Liverpool’s standout winger and one of the fastest and most prolific finishers in the world. Mane has already stated that he wants to continue his career at Merseyside, but we’ve heard that story before with Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho.
