And Isco's is the latest name in the headlines: the Spanish television programme "El Chiringuito" claims that Zinedine Zidane feels let down by the midfielder's performances this term and, if he remains as Los Blancos' head coach in 2018/19, wants to offload the former Málaga man in the summer. 'I said I've always believed in my team and I will do until the very end.

Nevertheless, Zidane was keen to point out that his backing for Isco did not mean a guaranteed run of starts, given the competition for places in his Madrid squad.

Chelsea could land both Marco Asensio and Isco this summer, according to reports in Spain. "Do I see him going to Real Madrid?". "I want Isco [in my team] and I want him to spend his whole life here", Zidane said in a statement. He a very good footballer. We know the reality we have.

Zidane has no new injury issues ahead of Saturday's game against Real Sociedad, with his starting XI likely to again include Gareth Bale after the Wales winger's newfound popularity around the Bernabeu saw him voted by fans as the club's player of the month for January.

Varane said: "When Zizou called me, it was a rather eventful period and I was focused on a period of exams and avoiding relegation to the second division with Lens".

The France defender says Zidane was key to his original decision to join Real when leaving Lens. "We know a big game is coming, but we have worked well all week and are ready for tomorrow".

"When things go well, there are many things that come together so you can win".

One of the Premier League's leading lights, Hazard has been among the few positives in a Blues team in freefall this season, with his 13 goals so far (Isco has seven) making him the English champions' top scorer in 2017/18.

"It is a mix of things", he said. "Hopefully, we won't hear any more of this", Zidane added.
