Zenit star Dzyuba: If they let me choose, I would choose to play for Madrid

Zenit Saint Petersburg striker Artem Dzyuba has indicated that if he was ever given the choice, he would choose to play for Real Madrid.

The 31-year-old also revealed on social media that he has been supporting Blancos since the ‘Galacticos’ era.

“I’ve been a Real Madrid fan since I was a kid and Raul [Gonzalez], Roberto Carlos, [Fernando] Redondo and Ronaldo [Nazario] played there,” Dzyuba said on Instagram.

“If they let me choose, I would choose to play for them.”

Dzyuba is the top scorer of the Russian Premier League where Zenit currently sit top of the table, nine points clear off second-placed Lokomotiv Moscow and Krasnodar.
