Zidane needs no one except Benzema

Zidane needs no one except Benzema

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has commented on the rumors regarding possible transfers of the club.

Zinedine Zidane has long been considered the main fan of Karim Benzema. Because of this, not a single striker in the club played besides Cristiano Ronaldo, which is quite logical. The coach did not give a proper chance to Luca Jovic, who was bought impulsively by Florentino Perez. Therefore, the Serb went on loan to his native Eintracht during the current season.

But rumors about new acquisitions were constantly circulating around Real Madrid. In addition to Kylian Mbappe, who has long been awaited at Santiago Bernabeu, information has recently appeared regarding the return of Cristiano Ronaldo. Although the Portuguese is more inclined to return to Manchester United, Zidane nevertheless commented on the likelihood of such a transfer,

“Karim is exceptional during all matches, and not only in those moments when he scores. Not many players can handle the ball the way he does - without loss and with high predictability for partners.

Am I interested in buying Mbappe, Haaland, or Ronaldo by the club? Why, if now I have such Benzema! We will use his capabilities to the maximum benefit for Real,” Zidane summed up.

We are still convinced that Zidane will not be against his compatriot Mbappe in the line-up. Especially considering the constant injuries of Eden Hazard. At the same time, the PSG forward can also cover the left wing of attack, and will not get lost in the center of the attack, paired with Benzema. Therefore, we would not take Zidane's words at face value, especially when Benzema turns 34 in December.

Zidane is not his own enemy and understands that Los Blancos are now getting to the peak of their shape. He needs to gradually rebuild the team if he hopes to stay at the club longer than until this summer. And with all this, there are transfer opportunities at Real, thanks to the sponsors and business schemes of Florentino Perez, because the club is showing a positive balance. With all this, Santiago Bernabeu is undergoing renovation, and high-profile transfers are expected in the summer.
