Real Madrid to sign Porto's Militao in 50 million euros deal

Do you think Zidane can get Real back to their very best?

Zinedine Zidane has set his sights on signing Sadio Mane and Paul Pogba to overhaul the Real Madrid team, according to a report in Spain.

Bale has faced criticism of his form this season but a coach who has enjoyed success alongside the Welshman in the past has said: "I'm not going to speak about Bale's season up to this point". "I am counting on him like everyone else".

Whether Zidane's words come with a place for Bale in his first starting line-up at the Santiago Bernabeu remains to be seen, as Madrid look to rebuild following a turbulent few months.

Los blancos now sit 12 points off La Liga leaders Barcelona in third place and having been embarrassed on home soil against Dutch giants Ajax in the last 16 of the Champions League; meaning, for the first time since 2012-13 season, the previous winners have failed to reach the quarter-finals the following season. "I'm going to count on Isco and the others to the fullest".

Ajax ended their dominance in Europe too, with a stunning 5-3 aggregate win in the Champions League last-16.

"The players - even those who have played less - are training, but then a game is not the same as a workout", the Frenchman told reporters at a news conference to preview Saturday's clash with Celta Vigo. "I am not here to make any lists, I am here to finish the season well, all together".

Asked whether he would like to coach France worldwide Mbappe at some point, Zidane said: "Like with all good players, I would love to".

"He wants to play all his career for Real Madrid".

"The good thing is that all players are good here".
