Zidane speaks about Madrid's transfer activity

Zidane shares insight on Neymar and Navas' transfers ahead of 2019-20 debut at home

August 23, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The French coach is still waiting for more players to arrive before the end of the summer transfer window, but the Brazilian ace may not be one of them.

Zinedine Zidane has apparently had enough of all the transfer rumors surrounding his team. Even if Paul Pogba, Christian Eriksen, Donny Van de Beek, Marc Roca, and even Neymar have been linked with a move to the Bernabeu, Zidane seems uninterested to feed such rumors.

In fact, the French tactician openly discussed the future of two players: Keylor Navas and Neymar.

The Costa Rican shot-stopper has been linked to an exit from the Spanish giants for the past two days, but Zizou openly admitted that the goalie will be key to the team's success or lack there of.

"I can't picture our squad without him, he has always been an important player and he will always be it. I am not considering to replace him. He has not told me he wants to leave. He's here and he wants to play, and that means the world to us," Zidane said.

The coach referred to some reports that claimed he was already searching for Navas' replacement.

"I'm not interested in that sort of thing, because Keylor is still here and he is going to have a key role. He has always been there for us, and we are plannig our season with him in mind. I want to be clear on this matter: I want Keylor to continue playing for us," he added.

Then, Zidane looked into the other hot topic involving Real Madrid nowadays: Neymar's transfer. The French tactician played down the possibility of having Neymar around, just like he has done with all of the other players that have been linked to the club.

"I want to plan our strategy with those players that are here. I am not worried about anything else. I'm sorry if I keep saying the same thing (regarding transfers in), but those players who motivate me and I care about are right here. All I know is that we play tomorrow, against Valladolid," Zidane stated.

Lastly, Zizou urged the media to let teams do their job when it comes to transfers, rather than asking their coaches about a player that is not in their squad.

"I know that anything can happen until September 2, and honestly, I can't wait for that day to arrive so we don't have to talk about the summer transfer window," Zidane concluded.

After a 3-1 win during their first clash of the season, Real Madrid will host Valladolid at Santiago Bernabeu stadium tomorrow. Follow the link below for TV and streaming options.
