Zinedine Zidane keen to relaunch pursuit of David De Gea — Real Madrid

Zinedine Zidane keen to relaunch pursuit of David De Gea — Real Madrid

Meanwhile Girona took a big step towards assuring their survival, thanks to two first half goals from Portu, which gave Eusebio Sacristan's side a 2-0 win away to Leganes.

Zidane's revamped starting lineup also included Marcelo, another player who had succeeded under the French coach but did not play often with Solari.

And Zidane has said Real will be busy in the summer, but he's in no rush to make a decision on who will come and go.

Madrid could have found themselves behind with Navas saving from Celta's Maxi Gomez in the first half, as some of the defensive issues shown throughout the season so far popped up again.

"And that's maybe the only good thing about that Arsenal defeat, to feel how much it hurt". (We'll get there) And with the Ballon d'Or victor leaving in the summer, the club can not afford to let Kroos leave at the same time. "So I am happy".

Earlier, reported Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane dropped goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois for Saturday's Spanish La Liga game against Celta Vigo. So the coach always has the problem.

Instead, he signed a new four-year contract at Old Trafford and then exercised a one-year extension this season to tie him down until the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

"We will have changes in the summer, but I can not say anything more. We are not [picking teams] on the playground here".

Since then they have replaced goalkeeper Loris Karius with one of the world's best, Alisson . Their last loss came against Wolves , when they lost 2-1 in the FA Cup .

Marcelo impressed too while Courtois might well wonder what his next couple of months hold, given Navas, an old favourite of Zidane, looks to be back in favour.

Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett has repeatedly stated Bale's intention to remain at the Bernabeu, but United are one of just a handful of clubs with the wherewithal to acquire the forward.

This was not quite as resounding a performance as the 5-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna in Zidane's first game as Real coach in 2016.

"We are all very excited, we have renewed hope after that tragic week", said Real defender Alvaro Odriozola. Every single game that you win puts another layer on that, on the way to becoming the team that we want to be.

"We've got to think about the longevity as well, who's going to fit in personality-wise".

"The change of manager seems to have worked", he said.

Assuming Madrid have assured Zidane that the club will sign the players he wants this summer, we could finally see De Gea join Los Blancos for a fee of around £75 million.
