Zidane openly admits Real Madrid are ‘going to make changes’

Zinedine Zidane has openly admitted that Real Madrid are going to be particularly busy in this summer’s transfer market.

It has been a hugely disappointing season for Los Blancos, who with seven La Liga games to go, are 14 points behind Barcelona and five behind Atletico Madrid.

They were ejected out of the Champions League at the hands of Eredivisie side Ajax and knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Barcelona, leaving the 13 time European champions with little to play for.

Since Zinedine Zidane’s re-appointment as Real Madrid manager last month, the Spanish side have been linked with a whole host of players, particularly from the Premier League, with the likes of Eden Hazard, Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, and Christian Eriksen being linked with a move to the Bernabeu.

There has also been plenty of talk about potential departures this summer, with Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane all being linked with exits.

Speaking ahead of Monday night’s La Liga game against Leganes, Zizou has confirmed that his club will be very active in this summers transfer market, and that a number of his underperforming stars will be leaving to ‘bring in cash’.

“All my players are important and good, but we are going to make changes,” Zidane said on Sunday.

“Here there are many players that can bring in cash for the club.

“The changes will be made known at the end of the season. We will see what changes we make and which players we will change.”
