Zidane tells Real Madrid president Florentino: Get me De Bruyne!

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has told president Florentino Perez to bring Kevin de Bruyne to Spain.

Don Balon says beyond anyother transfer target, Zidane sees the Manchester City star as Real's next Galactico and a player who can reach the status of Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Zidane has made his feelings clear to Perez and plans are now underway to tempt De Bruyne away from the Premier League.

A swap involving James Rodriguez has been raised, though City chiefs will be desperate to keep hold of the Belgian.

Zidane has been watching De Bruyne's progress for over two years and urged former Real coach Rafa Benitez to consider him when he was with VfL Wolfsburg.
