Real Madrid coach Zidane targets 'allies' Pogba and Mbappe

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane wants to build his new-look team around France's World Cup winning team.

With Raphael Varane already on the books, AS says Zidane wants two more France internationals added in 2020.

Manchester United ace Paul Pogba remains his prime midfield transfer target, while PSG star Kylian Mbappe is the striker he wants next summer.

It's suggested Zidane wants to build a dressing room based on French and Spanish talent to protect him from player criticism.

And he plans to spend the majority of next year's transfer budget on Pogba and Mbappe.
