REAL MADRID manager Zinedine Zidane is reportedly in a stand-off with president Florentino Perez

Paris Saint-Germain are apparently preparing to launch a £100million bid for Real Madridmidfielder Casemiro in the summer, but Zidane and Perez have different thoughts on the deal.

According to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, the French boss wants to keep his holding midfielder at the Bernabeu at all costs.

Zidane is said to be very wary of the difficulty of finding another player to replace the Brazilian if he leaves.

However, Perez is hoping that the sale of Casemiro could facilitate the arrival of Neymar as he looks to build a strong relationship with PSG.

Who will start for Real Madrid against PSG in their Champions League showdown?

Diario Gol add that Ligue 1 outfit are considering offering Julian Draxler as part of the deal to tempt them to part with Casemiro.

Draxler was wanted by Perez a number of years ago as he is an admirer of the midfielder.

PSG boss Unai Emery is hoping to replace the ageing Thiago Motta and Lassana Diarra with 26-year-old Casemiro.

The two clubs are set to meet in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie this evening (7.45pm).

Real will take a 3-1 first-leg advantage to the Parc des Princes thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo brace and Marcelo strike.
