Real president Florentino Perez has spent recent weeks exploring the prospect of prising the Egypt international away from Liverpool, seeing the striker as an ideal foil for Cristiano Ronaldo next season.
And Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, speaking on El Chiringuito de Jugones, revealed: "Zidane has already given the OK to Salah.
"He loves the player."
Indeed, the scouting reports and background checks on Salah have been glowing - further convincing Zidane and Perez that a deal must be pursued.
Perez is prepared to go as high as €200m this summer to convince Liverpool to cash in on their star man.
