For Real Madrid, it is a time of importance. Los Blancos find themselves searching for the right personnel in the transfer window that would help them challenge Barcelona once again in La Liga.
With Zinedine Zidane back as manager, some of that mojo is back, but there is still a lot of work to be done. And he knows it too.
Now, ESPN reporter Dermot Corrigan has revealed that apart from the player who could be leaving, Zidane has also made it clear which ones will stay at the Bernabeu, and they are names that might not be too surprising.
Prob most interesting this morn was Zidane putting Kroos on the list of ‘we’ll see at end of season” like Bale and Marcelo, not the “I definitely want them to stay” of Varane, Ramos and Benzema.

Zidane has revealed that he wants the likes of Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema all to “definitely stay” at the club next season, effectively putting an end to any interest from other European heavyweights.
Whether this can be sustained or not however, only time will tell.
