Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has sanctioned a €180million move for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho this summer, Bild reports.
It is understood that Madrid are the most recent top European club, to be interested in the 19-year-old winger.
Los Blancos have been linked with a move for Kylian Mbappe for a number of years and while the 20-year-old Frenchman remains a favourite of Zidane, there is an acceptance in the Spanish capital that Paris Saint-Germain are unwilling to part with their young star.
Zidane, who returned to the Madrid dugout barely six weeks ago, has reportedly now told club president Florentino Perez, to bring in Sancho instead.
Dortmund are believed to be open to a sale, should the fee reach €180 million, a price that would make Sancho the joint-second-most expensive footballer in history.
