Middlesbrough fans in the Football Transfer Tavern can’t believe what they’re hearing! A Zidane, coming to the Riverside? Surely not? Apparently so Boro fans….
So it finally looks like its going to happen, and we’re going to see a Zidane in the Premier League.
However, it’s not Zinedine, it’s actually his son Enzo, who looks close to joining Premier League new-boys Middlesbrough according to reports in Spain (El Confidencial).
Aitor Karanka has expressed an interest in bringing the Real Madrid Castilla man to the Riverside for their upcoming Premier League season and it now looks as if he has been given the green light to wrap up the deal in the coming days.
Boro, who were promoted from the Championship last season, have been extremely busy so far in the transfer market this summer, bringing in eight players already.
The likes of Alvaro Negredo, Brad Guzan and Marten de Roon are just some of the names that will feature for the Boro this season, and the arrival of the promising Frenchman would only increase their chances of survival.
So Boro fans, is this an exciting piece of news? A Zidane gracing the holy Red of the mighty Boro?! Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
