Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has given a modest response when asked about Kylian Mbappe amid speculation linking him with a move to the Bernabeu.
According to The Independent, the French icon will be given over £300m this summer to rebuild the Madrid squad amid what is likely to be a bitterly disappointing campaign.
After all the success that they enjoyed under Zidane in his previous stint, it has been a disastrous year for them and based on the report above, it could call for a major overhaul this summer.
Sky Sports has already reported that Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has already suggested that Mbappe and Neymar could be transfer targets this summer, but Zidane was remaining tight-lipped on the matter, albeit he admitted that he would be “Happy to coach” his compatriot.
“Like any good player, I would be happy to coach him,” he said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“But it’s not the time to talk about that.”
Time will tell if PSG can be persuaded to part with one of their most valuable and important assets, as the Ligue 1 champions will surely be desperate to keep hold of him.
