Zinedine Zidane wants Liverpool forward Sadio Mane and Manchester United talisman Paul Pogba as part of his Real Madrid revolution, according to reports.
Zidane was reappointed as Los Blancos boss on Monday by president Florentino Perez after the sacking of Santiago Solari.
In order to get the World Cup winner back, Perez reportedly had to promise Zidane total control in the transfer market and the backing to get the next generation of ‘Galacticos’ after a woeful season.
And, according to Spanish programme El Chiringuito TV, the Frenchman wants Mane and Pogba to complete his attack.
Last season, the Senegal international was identified by the manager as a potential replacement for Gareth Bale.
France Football claimed a deal was in place for Mane to move to the Bernabeu last summer, but was then shelved after Zidane’s shock departure.
Although the former Southampton winger has since signed a new deal at Anfield, the 26-year-old has refused to rule out a switch in the future.
“I am very happy in Liverpool but you never know what will happen in the future,” Mane said when quizzed about his future on the eve of this season.
After committing his future to the Reds, Mane has been in stunning form and is spearheading their charge in the Champions League and their assault on the Premier League title.
