Real Madrid have begun conversations over the summer signing of Tanguy Ndombélé from Olympique Lyon.
Re-appointed Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is eager for the LaLiga giants to move for Ndombélé, 22, and the journalist Dahbia Hattabia has confirmed that representatives of the France international recently travelled to the Spanish capital for initial talks over his arrival at the Santiago Bernabéu. During the discussions, Madrid chiefs sought to ascertain the kind of terms that Ndombélé would be looking for, and also took the chance to lay out the club’s plans for the coming campaign. According to Hattabia, the talks proved highly encouraging for both parties.
PSG and Juventus also keen on midfielder
However, the acquisition of Ndombélé won’t necessarily be a straightforward deal to get over the line, not least because Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are also eyeing close-season swoops for the player, who is under contract at Lyon until 2023.
