  • Zidane returned to the Bernabeu helm on Monday

That only heightens the chances of Rodriguez moving on, with returning manager Zinedine Zidane not seeing him as part of his plans. Real Madrid never really recovered from that, with losing Ronaldo they were arguably losing the greatest player to ever play for the club but losing Zidane really kicked things in motion.

Zidane's return suggests that Madrid president Florentino Perez has given the Frenchman assurances that signings will be made this summer - assurances that he couldn't give back in May when Zidane stepped down from the job. "But this is not the moment to talk about that".

And a major squad overhaul looks on the cards now Zidane has chose to return to the struggling Spanish outfit. "I never said that I would or would not like to [return to coach Madrid.] I think it's ideal, for me it's flawless".

"We all know the player Gareth is".

Zidane surprised many in the game with his decision to return to Real this week after the dismissal of Santiago Solari.

"I never talked about whether I would want to return to the position and I think, in my opinion, this is a flawless solution".

"What I think about is finishing the season well, I'm not going to look at who's going to continue, who's going to stay".

"Our job now is to win the 11 games we have left, then we will see what happens".

Zidane was quoted by Marca as saying on Friday: "I'm not going to speak about Bale's season up to this point". "I am counting on him like everyone else". Gareth is ready to play tomorrow.

Celta travel to Madrid after a home defeat last weekend to Betis took them into the bottom three and they are still without their best player, Iago Aspas.
