The extra responsibilities Zinedine Zidane will take on at Real Madrid, when Florentino Pérez decides to call on him, will be nothing new for the Frenchman. Zidane has already advised the Real president in the past – as was the case with the signing of Raphaël Varane, who was recommended by the club legend – and it seems his advice was spot on.
Zidane has also been acting as a club scout this season and is closely monitoring Gareth Bale, one of Real’s summer transfer targets. The former France international went to see the Welshman in the Europa League tie between Lyon and Tottenham. It seems Zidane is impressed by Bale and believes he would make a useful addition to the Madrid squad.
