Arsenal’s summer transfer window isnt exactly going to plan. Granit Xhaka was brought in early as well as signing a defender from League 1, but their hunt for a striker, midfielder and a defender goes on.
They have been dealt another blow after one of their transfer targets has spoken of a dream move to Real Madrid this summer.
Mousa Sissoko of Newcastle United lit up Euro 2016 with a series of dazzling displays, which have left some of Europe’s biggest clubs chasing his signature.
He told L’equipe:
That’s flattering. Who would not be flattered by the interest of the best clubs in the world?
It’s simple – when you are young and you start playing football, your dream is to become a professional and play for a club like Real or Manchester United.
I have worked my way up and if a club like Real comes to me, it will be something huge. It is difficult to reject a club like Real, although you still have to think carefully to make the best decision possible.
[Being coached by Zinedine Zidane] could be something fantastic, but that is not the case today.
Everyone knows Zidane, his career, the man he is and the coach he is becoming. This is a great person in the world of football.
Newcastle have slapped a £35million price tag on the head of the Frenchman, but rumours have been circulating that Real Madrid could be about to offer former boss Rafa Benitez the chance to sign two of the Spanish Giants academy stars in order to get their man.
