Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid new boss Zinedine Zidane has started his second spell as head coach of the Los Blancos team by hitting the ground running with transfer demands in order to return the club back to winning ways.
Zinedine Zidane had left the Bernabeu after his success last season but the club were unable to recover from his exit as they were unable to secure a perfect replacement for him, as such, they struggled throughout this season.
This is the reason why he had to return and he is set to begin by strengthening the team with reports claiming that he had told the club to get him Liverpool’s Sadio Mane in the coming Summer transfer window.
The Senegal international is a major part of the Jurgen Klopp’s attack force and is understood to be a loyalist of the German manager but his loyalty would now be tested as it is suggested that the La Liga giants will make a call from the Spanish Capital with a luring offer that will beat the one he earns at the Anfield.
However, it is unclear what the stand of the Reds management would be but there are suggestions that the move will be blocked.

With every possibility that Alex Luna will be heading straight to the first team of the club he will eventually sign for, his suitors will not get him any cheap because of how highly valued he is.
