Real legend Zidane, who has returned to the Bernabeu as adviser to new president Florentino Perez, insisted his old club had lodged a bid for United target Ribery and said: “I don't see how he can turn it down.”

Zidane confirmed he had spoken to the Bayern Munich midfielder and added: “Franck has a decision to make, but I believe he cannot refuse an offer from Real. He is a great player, and I expect him to be turning out for Real.

“It is only natural that the best players in the world are going to cost a lot of money, but we would welcome him with open arms.”
