Zinedine Zidane opens up about Raphael Varane Real Madrid exit

LaLiga: Real Madrid will have clear first-choice goalkeeper next season, says manager Zinedine Zidane

The France global has a strong bond with manager Zinedine Zidane, who was instrumental in bringing him to the Spanish capital from Lens 2011, and his relationship with Madrid teammates remains positive despite such a hard campaign.

"But more importantly I think this guy goes to PSG, if they can afford it".

Madrid face Valencia on Wednesday in LaLiga, after needing an 89th-minute victor from Karim Benzema to beat Huesca 3-2 on Saturday and make it two wins from two since Zidane's return.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has been assured by star midfielder Pogba that the Frenchman does not want to leave Manchester United despite mounting speculation over a switch to Real Madrid.

"I won't change anything", Zidane said.

'He found a way to transfer the talent he had as a player to his role as coach and manage a dressing room.

Last September club members approved Real going into debt of up to 575 million euros for 30 to 35 years to pay for the modernisation plan.

"At the moment there are three good keepers and we are going to finish the season with them", Zidane said at a press conference on Tuesday.

"About Gareth's future, we'll talk about that at the end of the season".

During the last worldwide break, Manchester United star Paul Pogba admitted that Real Madrid is a "dream club".

"Located in the heart of Madrid, it will be the best stadium in the world".

"The new Santiago Bernabeu stadium will entail an important improvement for the club, but also for its surroundings".

However, it has been rumoured that the centre-back is looking for a pay rise to reflect his status as one of the world's finest defenders, and there are doubts as to whether Real are willing to appease him.

"Courtois wasn't available and Keylor had been with Costa Rica and needed a bit of rest, so I played our other goalkeeper", Zidane said.
