Real Madrid is set to raid Liverpool, for their long term Marcelo replacement Andy Robertson.

It would make total sense if you were to say Real Madrid were chasing, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah or Roberto Firmino.

But apparently Zinedine Zidane sees another Liverpool player that catches his eye more.

The Frenchman saw compatriot Ferland Mendy come in over the summer as the replacement for Marcelo.

This has not worked quite as Madrid had planned, as the 31 Marcelo has kept Mendy on the fringes.

Zidane has had enough, and according to Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Scotland international Robertson is his target.

There is no figure being touted as of right now.

Given his form and the current transfer market, a hefty fee will be in order to prize the left-back away from Jurgen Klopp’s Anfield side.

Liverpool fans do not like this kind of talk at all and were quick to play the rumors down.though.
