Real Madrid’s chase for Paul Pogba was one of the big stories of the summer, and even though the Galacticos failed to get the Frenchman, the rumours about this transfer continue.

But it looks like Zinedine Zidane wants a midfield signing in January, and since Manchester United are unlikely to sell such a star in the middle of the season, new options could be on the table.

Spanish outlet El Desmarque reports today Florentino Perez has offered Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante as a possibility for the Real Madrid manager.

Kante would be an ‘alternative option’, with the club president willing to spend €120m to take him from Stamford Bridge. Even though he has a different style from Paul Pogba’s, the Chelsea player would bring the physicality that Zidane wants to his team.

It’s said that Kanté has told Chelsea he’s leaving if they don’t qualify for the Champions League again, which sounds very unlike him.
