Real Madrid president Florentino assures Zidane: We can buy Pogba AND Camavinga

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has assured coach Zinedine Zidane of their midfield transfer plans.

Zizou wants Real to go French this summer, pushing the arrival of Paul Pogba from Manchester United, but also a swoop for Rennes teen Eduardo Camavinga.

It was expected Florentino would insist only one of the two could be signed this summer, however AS says the president has assured Zidane that a deal for Camavinga will be negotiated independent of their talks with United for Pogba.

United are demanding at least €100m to sell their No6, while Rennes are seeking €60-70m to part with Camavinga.

And despite the outlay required, Florentino is confident of getting both deals over the line.
