As it aimed this Tuesday the newspaper "Sport", there is a history on the current trainer of the Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane, that few know or do not agree of her. It treats of the summer of 1996 in which a young Frenchman was about to fichar by the FC Barcelona to lead a new team that pretended moldear the Dutch Johan Cruyff from the bench of the Camp Nou. It called Zidane and his signing would have been one of the important incorporations that Johan wanted to do this year.

Beside him they would arrive Ryan Giggs, David Ginola, Lee Sharpe, Laurent Blanc, Pizzi and Luis Enrique. Of all they, only the three last could disembark in the Barcelona entity and because they arrived after finish or terminate agreement with his respective teams. In the case of Zidane, that Cruyff already had fichado in the month of January of this same year, had to leave him go when being sacked by the then president Jose Luis Núñez.

The maximum Barcelona mandator denied to pay the four millions that the Girondins asked by Zidane and preferred to invest 3,8 in the Brazilian of Santos Giovanni Silva. Something that the Juventus of Turín took advantage of for fichar to the international French by 2,4 million euros, something that dress the 73,5 millions that would pay later Florentino Pérez by him, went a truly round business.

To the French midfield player hurt him especially not being able to finish in Can Barça with Cruyff. As it affirmed in his day, with more peel and fewer years, his favourite teams of the infancy had been the Juventus of Turín and the FC Barcelona. Afterwards it would finish in the Madrid and now is his current trainer. But it can not do another thing that ask, what would have happened if Cruyff had been still in the Barça and there was traido to Zidane?
