Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is following the young player from Olympique de Marseille.
Zidane knows him very well since Mazime Lopez is a family friend, writes Mundo Deportivo.
“He played with my kids and showed an extraordinary technique for his age and length,” Zidane told to a press conference last season.
Zidane did not hide his admiration for the new French talent, which is already playing for U-21 in France.
“When you see him you think how small he is, but I’m not surprised by the way he is playing now. It’s impressive what he is doing, because what strikes me is his personality. He runs a lot, sacrifices himself and makes others play. I am happy for him, “said Zidane, who likes to work young players.
