Lyon could sell Houssem Aouar to Real Madrid for just €20m. It remains to be seen whether he will get a move in the next 48 hours.
Speaking in a press conference on Saturday, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane had the following to say when asked about interest in Lyon attacking midfielder Houssem Aouar.
L’Equipe already revealed on Friday the interest of the coach in the Lyon midfielder, who last year finished with nine goals in 41 games. The French outlet reported that Zidane himself had spoken to Aouar regarding a possible move to Madrid.
AS understand, Lyon would consider a transfer in exchange for €20 million and the inclusion of Mariano Díaz as part of the deal.
Mariano played with the Ligue 1 side three seasons ago, scoring 21 goals for the French team in a successful stint.
Mariano plus €20 million would be good business for Madrid as he is not currently in Zidane’s plans for the 2020/21 season.
Arsenal, PSG and Manchester City have enquired about the midfielder.
