Zidane and Perez clash over Real Madrid transfer target
Reports in Spain claim that Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Perez have clashed over the signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga. The manager wanted to get the deal with Athletic Bilbao but the president is not interested in signing him.
Perez does not see him as an improvement to Keylor Navas and wants to stick with the Costa Rican shot-stopper. Reports in El Transistor claim that Perez is more keen on signing De Gea or Thibaut Courtois as they are ‘bigger’ names in the game.

AS meanwhile, report that Kepa’s injury has made thing worse for the Madrid side. He may be out of action for the next three months and that has made it unclear if the goalkeeper will join Madrid this month or not.
Zidane wants to build a team for the future but the president wants to spend big and get one of the two Premier League stars.
