Real Madrid are desperate to make an impact in this summer transfer window.

However, there is some talk that Zidane could rotate his players more next season as Real Madrid look to compete on four fronts, so there could still be enough game time available for Thomas Meunier if he did make the move.

According to the Media, Belgium international is under consideration at Real as a perfect replacement for Danilo. Nasser Al Khelaifi, the chairman and CEO of PSG, was spotted in Madrid yesterday and he was expected to stop at Real Madrid’s office to talk about a possible Thomas Meunier deal.

How strong that interest is and whether Real Madrid will make a summer move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
