Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has said that he “would love to coach” Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe, 20, is enjoying another fine campaign at Paris Saint-Germain, finding the back of the net on 29 occasions in 33 appearances in all competitions for the French champions.
Juventus are believed to be preparing a summer bid, although the attacker has recently insisted that he will not be leaving PSG at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
Madrid are said to be long-term admirers, though, and Zidane – back in charge of Los Blancos for a second time – has revealed that he wants to manage the youngster.
“Neymar or Mbappe? I’m not going to talk about players who are not mine. I would love to coach Mbappe, as all the good players. But this is not the moment to talk about that,” Zidane told reporters.
Zidane’s return to the Bernabeu has reportedly ended Madrid’s pursuit of Mbappe’s club teammate Neymar.
