It’s something the Italian coach has already made clear to directors at the Bavarian club. He sees the young Frenchman as someone who could sure up Bayern’s back four and considers him as one of the defenders with the most potential in all of Europe.

Zidane Varane's foremost admirer

However such an operation wouldn’t come without complexities. Zidane is one of Varane’s foremost admirers, and the Real Madrid manager has no intention of listening to any offers. Zidane has already brushed off interest for the 23 year old from the Premier League, while Varane himself is focused on cementing his position in the Los Blancos starting line-up next season.
