Montpellier President Nicollin denies talks with Real Madrid goalkeeper Luca Zidane

Speaking to Midi Libre, Ligue 1 side Montpellier’s President Laurent Nicollin moved to deny initial reporting from MARCA that his side had begun conversations with Real Madrid goalkeeper Luca Zidane, who is poised to be a free agent at the end of this month.

“He is a very good goalkeeper, with lots of potential, but of his profile, we already have Dimitry Bertaud. What we are looking for is a number one.”

Nicollin went on to add that the player’s agent, Alain Migliaccio, approached him to offer him his client, and not the other way around.

Zidane Jr spent this season on loan at Spanish second division side Racing Santander.
