It seems Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane wants a centre-forward and ‘Zizou’ has a hitlist…
According to the Daily Express, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang features among Real’s options. Zidane has already spoken with the Arsenal striker, who has only a year remaining on his contract.
But in that conversation, Aubameyang has been informed that he is not Real’s first choice. Their primary target is Erling Haaland, who has had a belting three and a half months at Borussia Dortmund.
The Germans could land a profit worth in excess of £30million on the £18million they paid RB Leipzig over New Year.
Aubameyang isn’t even Plan B.
Real’s preferred alternative would be Sadio Mane – but the Liverpool star would cost almost three times what Haaland might if they are right in thinking the Senegal star could be prised away from Anfield for £140million.
