Erzgebirge Aue chief excited closing deal for former Real Madrid midfielder Enzo Zidane

Former Real Madrid midfielder Enzo Zidane is ready to continue his career in Germany.

The son of Real coach Zinedine Zidane, Enzo had been on the books with Almeria before terminating his contract by mutual consent in October.

The midfielder, 25, is now in talks to sign for German Second Division Erzgebirge Aue.

"The talks are well advanced. There were several conference calls. Enzo wants to go to Aue," confirmed club boss Helge Leonhardt to TAG24 via Fussballtransfers.com.

“Enzo's agent called me four weeks ago and that's how it all started. Enzo wants to develop and wants to get out of Madrid, away from the 40 television cameras that are constantly pointed at him.

"The chemistry is there. Enzo is a jewel that needs to be honed. It's possible with us."

Erzgebirge Aue currently play in the German Second Division and were the founding club of 3.Liga in 2008/09. Now in Germany's second tier, they're based in the city of Aue-Bad Schlema, which have a population of less than 21,000 people, so making them one of the smallest cities to ever host a club playing at the second highest level of German football.

Erzgebirge Aue's stadium, the Erzgebirgsstadion, has a capacity of less than 16,500.

Enzo, meanwhile, since leaving Real Madrid in 2017 has also played in Switzerland with Lausanne and Portugal with Aves.
