Upon the signing of Zinedine Zidane by Real Madrid, everyone has been waiting to see which players the latest manager in Europe would be signing first.
Well, it's now in the open and we now know who Zinedine Zidane First Real Madrid Signing is.
Zidane reportedly wants the transfer of Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante as his first summer signing.
This summer could be very worrying indeed for the Blues after Zidane's appointment at the Bernabeu, with the Guardian among the sources to link contract rebel Eden Hazard with Real Madrid in the recent past.
Sky Sports has in the past quoted Zidane as describing the Belgium international as his favourite player after Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

The France international could without a doubt do a job at Madrid, with Casemiro not looking at his best this season, while he could also be seen as an upgrade on Luka Modric and Toni Kroos in the middle of the park.
Kante has endured a frustrating season at Stamford Bridge, with Maurizio Sarri often playing him out of position in a more attacking role.
We’ll have to wait and see if Hazard could end up on Real's radar again, with the Independent suggesting he's one of a number of attacking targets the club have in mind for a major overhaul, along with the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
