Enzo Zidane is very close to sign his new contract with Alavés. The Real Madrid coach’s son will join La Liga club on loan for the next season after playing for Real Madrid Castilla in the last three seasons. The agreement could be closed this week.
Enzo Zidane has chosen Alavés because Marcos Llorente, his friend, played there the last season and he was able to play the Copa del Rey final against FC Barcelona. Llorente convinced Enzo that Alavés is the right place to grow up as a player, because he could enjoy minutes and the pressure is not that high.
Alavés have changed the manager this summer because Mauricio Pellegrino left and joined Southampton and Luis Zubeldía took over. Alavés were promoted last season and he avoided relegation easily last season, reaching the Copa del Rey final in a very successful season.
Enzo Zidane plays as a midfielder and he’s only 22 years old (24-04-1994). He has made his debut with the first team, playing 44 minutes in Copa del Rey in the game against Cultural Leonesa. With Real Madrid Castilla, Los Blancos second team, he played 32 games in the league, scoring five goals. The team was unable to reach playoff positions, so they’ll stay one more year in the third division (2ªB). Enzo played three season with Real Madrid Castilla, playing 8, 38 and 32 games in the competition.
Zinedine Zidane’s son hopes to have more minutes at Alavés and improve his performances, having many minutes in La Liga. Real Madrid continue giving on loan young players, so they can show their quality in the Spanish league and, hopefully, they can bring back the players if they are successful. Marcos Llorente went through the very same path and now he should be part of the Real Madrid squad for the next season.
