Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has said that anything can happen in the January transfer window and has not ruled out the possibility of Los Blancos making some signings this month.
It is reported that the Real Madrid boss met with the president Florentino Perez on Tuesday evening to discuss transfers as well as the way Real Madrid are going to approach the rest of the La Liga season.
Regarding the meeting, Zidane had this to say:
“We talked about everything and maybe we talked about the possibility of reinforcements for the team,”
“Today I can tell you there will be no transfers, but until January 31st anything can happen. Maybe somebody new comes but what I want is that nobody leaves.
“Coaches like me, we build a squad at the beginning of the season and I’m very happy with that squad. I will fight alongside them until the end.”
As we all know, Real Madrid have set a high standard for themselves over the years, which includes winning both the La Liga and Champions League titles last year. Due to that success, it is all the more disappointing that Real are currently fourth in the La Liga table, fourteen points behind bitter rivals Barcelona.
Florentino Perez has gained a reputation for sacking managers but it seems as if his relationship with Zidane is still very strong, which will stand the club in good stead for the rest of the season.
In other news, Zidane has confirmed that Welsh winger Gareth Bale will bein the squad for the Copa Del Rey first leg against Numancia on Thursday, but it remains to be seen whether he will start.
“He will be with the team tomorrow and then we shall see. We want him to play more gradually until he can regularly play games.
“He’s a very important player for us, he’s in very good shape and regularly training which is very important.”
