Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe has revealed his admiration for Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane. Mbappe has been linked with a big-money move to the Bernabeu this summer following another sensational campaign.

Zidane, who secured a sensational return to Bernabeu last month, is eyeing a huge overhaul of his squad this summer after a tough season for Real.

Top on his wish list is the 20-year-old striker, and Mbappe’s latest comments will certainly increase speculation surrounding his future.
Mbappe has made no secret of his admiration for Brazilian legend Pele, but the youngster has now revealed Zidane was another childhood hero of his.
Speaking to French magazine France Football, he said: “The only one who has impressed me as much as Pele is Zidane.”
Meanwhile, Real Madrid is reportedly plotting a sensational triple summer swoop for Paul Pogba, Eden Hazard and Mbappe with a £430million transfer war chest.
Bernabeu chiefs are desperate to re-establish their superiority in Europe after a dismal campaign which has ultimately led to the return of Zidane as manager.
Los Blancos sacked Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari with Real out of title contention, out of the Champions League and out of the Copa del Rey.
Zidane won four European Cups in five years in his first spell as Real boss and will now be given the funds to rebuild the team with a new raft of superstars, according to French outlet L'Equipe.
