Real Madrid president Florentino Perez met with directors yesterday to discuss summer transfer plans.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez met with directors yesterday to discuss summer transfer plans.

El Confidencial says the summit was a marathon session, with all positions discussed.

Among the names mentioned was Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala and AS Monaco midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia.

France international Mangala has been offered to Real by intermediaries, but Perez is unhappy with Porto's €30 million valuation.

Kondogbia, meanwhile, is being discussed at Real as a cheaper midfield alternative to €70 million-rated Juventus youngster Paul Pogba.

The Monaco man could be on the move over the summer after failing to nail down a regular start this season.
