The first of these conditions is the extension of the Belgian star Eden Hazard, who is on the verge of leaving Real Madrid, at the end of the season, and then get a budget of 200 million euros to arrange deals in which Zidane has a large share of the right to decide.
The coach, who has won three consecutive Champions League titles with Real Madrid, wants to be the word of the season, along with club manager Marina Granovskaia, in terms of planning and restructuring so the Blues can compete for titles.
The Sun published its forecast on the squad that Zidane may rely on if he signs a contract with the London club for next summer.
The British newspaper speculated on three possible deals: At the defense level, the name of Mönchengladbach Matthias Ginter, 25, was invited to play alongside Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta.
On the midfield, Isco has been strongly named because of the problems the Spanish face with his current club Real Madrid, and is therefore ready to leave the White House.
In the line-up, it is very possible for The Sun to rely on Christian Pulisic, who is currently on loan with Dortmund, or Mauro Icardi, the Argentine striker, who does not want to decide on his current contract extension until 2021, Manage his club Inter Milan.
