Real Madrid have reportedly planning to make a move for Kingsley Coman once they offload Gareth Bale out of the club this summer.
Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has long declared the Welshman surplus to requirement at the Santiago Bernabeu.
They were inches close to selling the former Tottenham star to China in a deal around £1 million-a-week, but the club's president Florentino Perez pulled the plug on the move.

Bale currently earned £600,000-a-week at Real and the Spanish League giants are looking for ways to reduce their annual wage bills, hence, the need for the winger to leave soon.
And the former Spurs man has been linked with a return to the Premier League side Newcastle United but this can only happen when the takeover is done in the summer.
Daily Star, however, reports that the Galacticos are identified Frenchman Coman as the ideal replacement for Bale at the Bernabeu.
The 23-year-old winger whose deal with Bayern expires in the summer of 2023 is said to have also attracted interests from Barcelona and Manchester City.
He has scored five goals and five assists in 24 appearances for the Bavarians across competitions this campaign having joined them from Juventus in 2017 for a fee around €21 million.

Coman spent his initial two seasons on loan at the Allianz Arena before making the deal permanent and has gone ahead to win four Bundesliga titles among others.
The winger also won league titles in France with PSG and Italy before joining the German League heavyweights.
YEN earlier reported that Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale may be returning to the Premier League this summer with Newcastle United showing interests in the Welshman.
The 30-year-old winger is definitely not wanted by Los Blancos boss who already declared him surplus to requirement in his squad.
He was close to moving to China in a mega-deal last August but the club's president Florentino Perez pulled the plug on the deal.
