Real Madrid transfer news: Zidane reveals his January plans, new bid for Man United star and more - 27th November, 2017
Zidane open to signing new players
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is open to signing new players during the January transfer window as he prepares to chase down Barcelona for the La Liga title, reports Marca.
The winter transfer window is set to open in January and players like Mauro Icardi, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, and Anthony Martial have been linked with a move to Bernabeu with Zidane open to signing new players.
In his recent interview with Marca, Zidane said: "I am just saying it could happen, I am very happy with my squad, I don't want it to change, I don't want anyone to leave.
"But in football anything can happen. There are other people [at the club] apart from me when it comes to deciding things, and we can talk.
"When the market opens we will talk, but maybe nothing changes. For sure nobody is going to leave. We know we are able to sign in January, that is all."
Real Madrid prepare a new bid for Martial
Real Madrid are ready to offer Anthony Martial a way out of Manchester United by submitting a big money January bid for the Frenchman, reports Don Balon.
Despite playing a part in more than 10 goals this season, manager Jose Mourinho is not happy with Martial's inconsistency and is reportedly seeking a replacement.
Real Madrid have kept a close eye on Martial in recent months and manager Zinedine Zidane is a fan of Martial's ability on the ball and sees him as an ideal player for his team.
Don Balon claims United would listen to any offers beyond £60million, however, the relation between the two clubs are not great at the moment which could stifle any possible negotiations in January or next summer.
Icardi responds to Real Madrid rumours
Inter Milan striker and skipper Mauro Icardi has openly admitted that he will refuse any possible move to Real Madrid and will continue to play for the Serie A club, according to Sky Sports.
Icardi is on a 3-man shortlist for Real Madrid whom they would like to sign in January and Icardi's £98million release clause makes him an easy target for the Los Blancos.
However, Icardi is not getting tempted and claims he is focused on regaining the Serie A title with Inter Milan.
In a recent interview with Sky Sports Italy, Icardi said: "If I receive a phone call from Real Madrid, I won't answer. I do what I have to do on the field and then there are other people who take care of these matters.”
