Watch Out Manchester United, City, Spurs, Chelsea, And Liverpool: Five Premier League Players Zinedine Zidane Must Target For Real Madrid Renaissance

Sexy bastard.
Sexy bastard.

Tale as old as time, Real Madrid were once again front and centre of the latest football news after Los Blancos sensationally sacked Santiago Solari to bring in former manager, and ex-player Zinedine Zidane, making him the third head honcho of the season.

The legendary Zizou, who wrote his own page in the history books with three consecutive Champions League titles between 2016 and 108, has an almighty task on his hands to propel Real Madrid back into the upper echelons of the European elite, following their disastrous exit to Ajax in the premier European competition this week.

Should a warchest be provided by president Florentino Pérez, here’s five Premier League stars who the 13-time European champions should target come the summer transfer window.

Harry Kane

Please don’t let him do the interviews after the game. Kane has defied critics time and time again, to become a serial achiever in the English top tier. Has two Premier League Golden Boots, and a World Cup one at that, to his name. Would cost a simply brobdingnagian fee for Daniel Levy to allow him to depart north London.

Raheem Sterling

Surely a contender for Premier League Player of the Season, and it’s still hard to believe he’s only 24-years-old. World. At. Feet. Raheem Sterling, he’s top of the league. If there’s one player who can represent English homegrown talent abroad, it’s this man. Could easily slot into any of Europe’s top teams.

Marcus Rashford

A Manchester United academy product, this would be a wrench if ever there was one.

Former manager, legend epitomised, Sir Alex Ferguson once said “Jesus Christ. I wouldn't sell them a virus" in response to Real Madrid sniffing around their squad in previous years. But just imagine the Wythenshawe-born lad all in white leading the line for Real Madrid.

Eden Hazard

Because you just know it’s going to happen.

Virgil Van Dijk

After bagging hot property Eder Militao from Porto in a gobsmacking €50 million deal this week, a revitalization of a stale backline is on the cards. Making the world’s most expensive defender the world’s more expensiver defender would certainly be a statement of intent. Would also stop Liverpool singing that shit chant.
