Zinedine Zidane has requested Florentino Perez the signing of Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante, Spanish website Bernabeu Digital has claimed.
The French manager is seeking to reinforce his midfield line with defensive midfielder, and he believes the France international is the perfect man for the job.
Casemiro has performed brilliantly in that position during the last third of the season. However, it seems like Zidane believes Kante would fit better in his ideal team.
Kante has been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League this season, helping Leicester lead the table with four matches to go and having a real chance of winning the title.
Many European giants have shown an interest in signing the 25-year-old, including Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
According to these reports, Real Madrid believe they can bring Kante for 25 million euros. However, the competency will be high, and that could raise the player’s price significantly.
