INSIDER: Zidane in regular Mbappe contact; happy for Real Madrid to sell Vinicius Jr

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is actively pursuing a deal for PSG striker Kylian Mbappe this summer.

That's according to Okdiario's chief football pundit Eduardo Inda, while speaking on El Chiringuito.

With Mbappe's deal running to 2022, the coming summer market represents the best time for PSG to cash in - and Real Madrid are among teams long interested in the striker.

Inda says Zidane would be willing to sell Vinicius Junior to help fund a move for his fellow Frenchman.

He explained, "In recent days, Zidane has spoken with Kylian.

"They do it every three or four weeks and the player could come this summer.

"There is a great novelty and it is that Madrid wants to get rid of Vinicius, which could accelerate the arrival of Mbappé to Real Madrid. The price that PSG asks for Mbappé is €150m."
