It's no secret that Real Madrid are already working on putting together a team for the 2021/22 season and among the list of players are Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Aurelien Tchouameni, proving that Los Blancos will continue to invest in the French market.
With Zinedine Zidane's arrival as coach, the Spanish coach embarked on a new policy of looking to sign some of the brightest French talent, and we saw Theo Hernandez, Ferland Mendy and Eduardo Camavinga brought to the club.
It's important to note that French is the second language in the Los Merengues dressing room with the presence of Eduardo Camavinga, Thibaut Courtois, Karim Benzema and Eden Hazard.
Despite the fact Zidane is no longer coach, the club is showing no signs of turning away from this market, with many of their 2022 targets set to come from France.
As MARCA revealed on Thursday, Monaco midfielder Tchouameni is being closely monitored by the Spanish club, who they would quite like to pair with Camavinga moving forward.
Pogba's contract at Manchester United is set to expire in June of 2022 and this low-cost option would certainly be attractive to Los Merengues, even though Zidane had been the driving force behind the club's previous pursuit of the former Juventus playmaker.
Ligue 1 is producing incredibly bright talent as a result of the drive to compete with Paris Saint-Germain's riches, and it's no surprise that the best in Spain are targeting those players.
Raphael Varane was another player Zidane championed before his move to the Spanish capital and he could even be replaced by another Spanish-based French international in the form of Jules Kounde, with Real Madrid retaining an interest in his services.
