Zidane insists son Luca is in Madrid team "on his own merit"

Luca Zidane made his home debut for Real in the 3-2 win over Huesca.

"I spoke recently with Anthony, Raphael's brother, so we discussed a little bit about the state of the market, so to speak", Satin said, according to FourFourTwo. "Those that know me know that Luca is here on his own merit and nothing else".

"He's from the academy".

"We can talk about (Dani) Carvajal, the debut of many players here and Luca is one of them".

"You have to have personality for that and to accept what people want".

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Raphael Varane has debunked rumours linking him with an £86m move to join Manchester United next summer. Juventus are the latest club to be linked with him.

Real Madrid are aware that an operation to bring the Frenchman to Spain will not be an easy task, especially when United retained Pogba last summer when he wanted to leave the club as he was unhappy under Jose Mourinho.

Interestingly, Varane, who has spent eight years at the Spanish capital disclosed recently ithe 2018-19 season was very hard.

"Real Madrid and their fans would fancy having Mbappe one day, and he can surely go to Madrid, but you have to consider many things", he added.

Zidane admitted that changes to the playing squad will be required in the off-season, but wasn't willing to divulge details.

"We took advantage of the fact a lot of players had been on worldwide duty to give others a chance and they did well".

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

"At the moment there are three good keepers and we are going to finish the season with them", Zidane said, as per AFP. "There will be time later".

"He has that thing that a goalkeeper needs". Courtois and Navas are now competing for the gloves, with Luca as their backup, and there's been an ongoing debate throughout the season about who should be Madrid's No.1.

"I think Zidane knows how to handle the team in an intelligent way", the Portugal superstar told RMC Sport 1. "That much is clear".
