Zidane Takes No Joy In Barcelona's Champions League Collapse

Real Madrid have told former No 1 goalkeeper Keylor Navas he is no longer in their plans and he can leave this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Zidane remained tight-lipped about the prospect of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba joining the club this summer. "We've had a good week of preparations and what I'm concerned about is that we have a good game to be involved in".

The player is also said to have his mind set on moving to Barcelona, which is another stumbling block for Real Madrid. Nobody will take away what we have done in the Champions League and how impressive it is. Now we have another game and then we will see next year.

Barca's wait for a sixth Champions League title will now stretch to a fifth year, having previously been knocked out in the quarter-finals in three successive campaigns on the back of lifting the trophy in 2015.

Asked about Barnett's comments, Zidane said: "Nothing, I do not want to answer".

China's economy is expanding and the Chinese Communist Party can mandate a strategy unchecked by democratic forces in the nation. The report explained that the Chinese were able to steal military equipment, including anti-submarine and aviation technology.

Meanwhile, Real Sociedad coach Imanol Alguacil knows the importance of Sunday's fixture as his side look to leapfrog rivals Athletic Bilbao and put themselves in the frame for European qualification next season.

Zidane became Real's third manager of the campaign when he returned to the club's helm in March, and many believe the Frenchman is going to make a lot of personnel changes ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

While Zidane has offered support to the likes of Karim Benzema, Marcelo and Raphael Varane, he has refused to offer assurances over Bale.

"We have had an irregular and complicated year to do injuries, but I wish every year we had the chance to fight for seventh place with only two matches left to go".
