Houssem Aouar is “a great player” according to Zinedine Zidane, who spoke about the situation of the Lyonnais, announced in the sights of Real Madrid.
Arsenal, Juventus, PSG, real Madrid… There are a lot of people on Houssem Aouar, but the question now is to know which club will want or be able to take action before Monday, the date of the end of the summer transfer window, if we still dare to call it that . The name of Real is the one that appeared, or more exactly reappeared, most recently. According to L’Equipe, Zinedine Zidane even spoke to the Olympique Lyonnais playmaker.
Unsurprisingly, the Merengues coach was asked about the matter at a press conference on Saturday. “I don’t know what information you have, Zidane replied about Aouar, AS relays. I have no doubt about this player, he is a great player. Maybe one day he could play for Real, but today we have this team and my concern is the players I have now. From October 5, such questions will no longer be asked. “
A loan, the solution?
Zidane is used to not speaking out in the transfer window until the transfers are completed. He stuck to this course of action, but the least we can say is that he does not hide his interest in the OL playmaker, called up by Didier Deschamps for the France team.
But can Real close the Aouar file now? With the physical problems experienced by Eden Hazard, the Spanish champions could be tempted to add an attacking player to their squad. The Team raised the possibility ofa loan with a compulsory purchase option (50 million euros?), which could make the deal possible. But time is running out.
