N’Golo Kante to Real Madrid is growing very quickly as a transfer story in Spain. It’s been mentioned several times previously, but on Wednesday the twin Madrid based pair of Marca and AS go really big on it.
Earlier we covered Marca’s claims, and it’s similar for AS. It’s worth stressing how big a story this is right now. Marca have Kante splashed across their front page, whilst AS have him take up part of their front page, but also a double page spread inside.
Both newspaper have the story as the major feature on their websites right now. That’s despite more ‘Galactico’ type names being linked to real Madrid this week, and despite the fall-out continuing from Spain’s Euro 2016 elimination.
AS roll out the ‘new Makelele’ line and, just like Marca, explain it’s Zinedine Zidane pushing for the potential transfer.
