Zidane left Real after guiding them to a third consecutive European crown last May, but when he returned to the Bernabeu earlier this month he inherited a team in desperate need of renovation.
"I'm going to count on Isco, as well as other players, the important thing is that I make each player feel very involved".
"I'm going to repeat myself a lot here, but Gareth is ready to play". I'd be happy to train all the good players. Madrid president Florentino Perez knows that persuading Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi to allow Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to leave this summer will be problematic.
"There are 11 games left and what we want is to finish well".
"We lost in the league and cup, we won the Champions League, fine, but I know where I am".
The former Tottenham forward is being heavily linked with a Premier League return , but Zidane is reluctant to be drawn into another debate when it comes to the 29-year-old.
Rodriguez is a playmaker who needs the team to be built around him and while he is a slightly more willing runner than Ozil, he is not a high-octane player and that's what Emery seems to want. Hazard appeals not just because he is a favourite to coach Zinedine Zidane but because he is in the a year ago of his contract and for the same reason Madrid are pushing hard for Tottenham's Christian Eriksen.
