Zinedine Zidane has reportedly given his full backing for the Real Madrid board to move for Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante.
Los Blancos are said to be in the market for a new defensive midfielder to either rival or partner Casemiro from the start of next season.
Madrid are rumoured to have unsuccessfully swooped for Kante in the past, but he may now back on their radar.
The World Cup winner has established himself as one of the finest midfielders on the planet across five years with Leicester City and Chelsea.
Amid claims that the Blues are ready to cash in, a separate report in Spain suggests that Zidane is happy for Madrid to bring in Kante during the next transfer window.
However, the La Liga giants could face competition from Paris Saint-Germain, who have also previously tried and failed to sign the 29-year-old.
