Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has reportedly held talks with club President Florentino Perez about roping in Manchester City superstar Kevin De Bruyne.

The Los Blancos have made a poor start this season and are fourth in the La Liga table – fourteen points behind current league leaders Barcelona, but a game in hand.

Real Madrid are looking forward to overhaul the squad at the end of the season and have identified De Bruyne as their top target in order to add more creativity in their midfield.

The Belgian attacking midfielder has displayed red-hot form so far this season and has emerged as one of the best midfielder in Europe.

De Bruyne still has three and a half seasons left on his current contract he signed during his £54million move from Wolfsburg to City in 2015.

He has anchored the Man City attack this season – guiding them to the top of the table – 15 points ahead of second place Manchester United.

His red-hot form has caught the attention of La Liga giants Real Madrid and it is being said that Barcelona are also monitoring the availability of the Belgian star.

According to Spanish website Don Balon, Zidane has held talks with Perez about landing De Bruyne at the Bernabeu.

Perez has decided to rope in a big-name to get things back-on-track at the Bernabeu as he desperately want to overturn Real Madrid’s form.

Reports claim that Perez is a huge admirer of Man City star De Bruyne, who has emerged as a world-class talent under Pep Guardiola.

And now Real Madrid are ready to launch a bid of around £88.6m (€100m) for De Bruyne next summer.

However, De Bruyne is happy with life at Man City and it is believed that he has no plans of leaving the club anytime soon.

The Belgian is set to put pen to paper on a bumper new deal with Manchester City.

De Bruyne has emerged as one of the best footballers in the world and the Man City hierarchy want to reward him for his incredible performances by making him the club’s highest paid player – in a bid to keep him out of the clutches of Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.
