Zidane’s favorite between Koundé and Upamecano for defense

15 Aug 2020

Zinedine Zidane knows that one of the great future subjects that Real Madrid will have is the search for an ‘heir’ or ‘replacement’ for Sergio Ramos . In the short list, the names of Koundé and Upamecano stand out. Who is better?

The future of Real Madrid defense is in France. The club has already the legendary Raphael Varane, who has won absolutely everything in the white shirt, and aspires to repeat the same procedure ‘fishing’ in the future of Les Bleus.

Zidane is convinced that both will be top and has no qualms about choosing between the two. “Both will be top, but Upamecano will be a little higher,” Zizou confesses to his team to move through the future transfer market.

Therefore, Upamecano sees a bigger ceiling. The Leipzig player continues to be one of the desired options for the defense of Los Blancos.

Both Dayot Upamecano and Jules Koundé are 21 years old and still have to show, in games like those that are playing both in the Champions League and in the Europa League, that they are the future.

Zidane already warned that Varane was an emerging talent at Lens and did not disappoint in his career at the Bernabéu. Now they are looking for a ‘clone’ of Rapha to be his companion for many years … waiting, also, for Éder Militao to explode.
