Zinedine Zidane Wants €100m For These Two Players This Summer
Real Madrid created history last season in what was Zinedine Zidane’s first full season at the club after his promotion to the first team in 2015.
The French manager has now helped Real Madrid to their first league title in more than three years and has also won two back to back Champions League trophies, becoming the first team to do so in the modern era.
Zidane is now looking to improve on his squad for the next season to make sure that he has enough firepower to face the challenges in the upcoming campaign.
This has seen him linked with some of the finest stars in world football at the moment but it will mean that Real will have to sell a few first team players to make sure that there is enough space for the newcomers.
And in this inflated market, they are not ready to let any player leave for anything less than their market value.
In conjunction with that, Real Madrid are now demanding a whole of €100m for two of their squad players in Alvaro Morata and Danilo.

The Spanish striker moved back to the Bernabeu after a two-year exciting stint in Italy and though he has been productive in Spain, he has failed to establish himself in the first team under Zidane last season.
He is still a backup for Karim Benzema in the first team and reports claim that he is ready to quit the club, with Real also ready to let him go this summer.
Italian outfit AC Milan and English outfit Chelsea are both interested in his services but neither club is ready to meet his valuation.
According to latest reports, Los Blancos are not willing to let him leave for anything less than €70m and are ready to ignore all offers below the price tag.
Danilo for €30m

Danilo, who joined the club just last summer, has not been able to show enough promise to dethrone Dani Carvajal from the first team and Carvajal is expected to start next season as the first choice right back, pushing Danilo down the pecking order.
Zidane is reportedly ready to let him leave but is demanding €30m, almost as much as he paid for his services a year ago.
Chelsea and Manchester City are both interested and if they meet the valuation, Real might be able to get €100m from the sale of the duo this summer.
