Zinedine Zidane Requests Real Madrid President Florentino Perez Make At Least ‘Three More Signings’
Zinedine Zidane will reportedly request Real Madrid president Florentino Perez crack open the club's war chest to make 'three more signings' this summer.
Los Blancos have invested heavily this summer after a disappointing season, with the Spanish club's spending reaching almost £300m.
And 'Zizou,' 47, is far from done in the window as he wants the club to splash out some more money.
According to Spanish publication Diario Gol, the Madrid manager has asked Perez, 72, for three more signings as he prepares for the new season.
Madrid have already completed the marquee signing of Eden Hazard from Chelsea for an initial fee of £89m.
And the ex-Chelsea superstar has arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu along with fellow signings Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt, Eder Militao from Porto, Ferland Mendy from Lyon and Rodrygo from Santos.
Zidane is keen to strengthen his midfield options and Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba has been linked with the club this summer.

Pogba, 26, revealed his desire to quit Old Trafford and both Los Blancos and Juventus are interested in landing him.
But the Red Devils are expected to play hardball over any potential transfer as they hold out for an eye-watering £180m.
Madrid could snub Pogba in favour of a more cost-effective move for fellow Premier League star Christian Eriksen, who has revealed his desire to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
Ajax star Donny van de Beek, 22, has also been linked Madrid this summer.
Ajax director of football Marc Overmars was alerted to the interest from Zidane's side in the club's youth academy product last month.
But the Dutch champions will demand at least €50m to €60m for the Dutch midfielder, who has also attracted interest from United, Liverpool, Spurs and Barcelona.
