Zidane says new Real contract no guarantee of job security

Posted August 13, 2017

The Spanish outlet have claimed that it is surprising that Real Madrid have not officially publicized the news of this vital agreement.

09 de agosto de 2017, 15:06Madrid, Aug 9 (Prensa Latina) Croatian Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric will miss out on Sunday first leg of Spanish Super Cup versus FC Barcelona due to a sanction he drags from three years ago sanction, the media reported today.

A win for Madrid, with the return leg in the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, however, would give Zidane's side a huge boost ahead of the new campaign and be a pointer to the final destination of this season's silverware. You can sign for 10, 20 years.

The Spain worldwide enjoyed an impressive start to the life at the Santiago Bernabeu but his future at the club came under major scrutiny during the the first part of last season.

Just four months later he guided Real Madrid to the Champions League title after beating fierce rivals Atletico Madrid on penalties.

"What we want to do is to keep this winning streak alive", Zidane said after Madrid beat United.

Centre back Jesus Vallejo is injured and will miss the Clasico, along with Croatian global Luka Modric for the first leg due to a suspension dating back to Madrid's last appearance in 2014.

Barcelona have shown serious interest to lure the Spaniard away from the Bernabeu this summer after losing Brazilian star Neymar to Paris Saint Germain in a world record deal. That match, however, was more about paying homage to the victims of the plane crash that decimated Chapecoense previous year than warming up for Madrid. Deulofeu now has a chance to earn his place in Barcelona's starting 11 under new coach Ernesto Valverde.

"Whoever is going to play instead of Neymar he will do it well". Barcelona couldn't count on a suspended Neymar for that match, but Messi scored twice, including a dramatic last-gasp goal, to seal a memorable 3-2 win.

"Cristiano is ready and he is doing really good, he has had vacations and has been with us for five days now, he has worked a lot physically during his holidays so he is ready to play with us". "It's an important title and I think that we are prepared".
