Zinedine Zidane is working on reinforcing Real Madrid defense and may invite the unsettled PSG star to Los Blancos

Real Madrid are eyeing up a move for Paris St-Germain right-back, Thomas Meunier, according to a report in Spanish news outlet, MARCA via Sportskeeda. The move is heavily dependant on Los Blancos defender Danilo leaving the club for either Juventus or Chelsea, as Zinedine Zidane seeks to ensure he has two players in every position of his already deep Real Madrid squad. PSG will reportedly seek a fee in the range of €35 million, according to French journalists, but Madrid hope to negotiate that down further.

Thomas Meunier made a name for himself in his native Belgium for Club Brugge, before Paris St-Germain parted with €7 million last summer, to bring him to the Parc des Princes. The Belgian has impressed plenty this season with his solid performances at the back, including a couple of memorable strikes such as the one against Barcelona in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League.
