Real Madrid have appointed Zinedine Zidane as manager following a horrible season – which means they’re going to go very big in the summer transfer market this summer.
That much is undeniable, but we actually don’t think we have much to worry about.
Spanish outlet El Chiringuito TV, translated by Football 365, have named a four-man shortlist, which includes Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard and Liverpool’s Sadio Mane!
Our Senegalese forward has scored 16 non-penalty Premier League goals this term and is rightly recognised as one of the best attackers in Europe.
We’d be a little scared of Real’s interest if Mane hadn’t extended his deal in November, but he did – so if Real wanted our 26-year-old – they’d have to spend more than Barcelona did on Coutinho in January 2018.
We reckon Hazard is the obvious transfer. He is desperate to go and Chelsea are unlikely to be in the Champions League next term – once again.
Zidane might fancy Pogba and Mbappe, but United and PSG aren’t going to sell, just like we aren’t.
Usually, coming into a transfer window, we brace ourselves from interest from one of Spain’s big clubs in our best players – but we truly believe that under Jurgen Klopp – those days are over.
