Could Mats Hummels' time at Bayern come to an end this summer

The Brazilian youngster, who has been one of the few shining lights for Madrid spilled the beans on Zidane's stature and revealed exactly why the players get nervous around him.

Real Madrid whiz Vinicius Junior admits coach Zinedine Zidane can be intimidating. Kroos has chose to go straight to the source and categorically deny his intention to leave this summer by admitting that the information was absolutely false. They are planning on offloading a number of players also.

But speaking ahead of Real's trip to Leganes on Monday night, Zidane was full of praise for Benzema, saying that he offers something different to many forwards.

'He's done many good things in his five years here, he's a calm player that doesn't wilt under pressure. I've always liked him.

They were ejected out of the Champions League at the hands of Eredivisie side Ajax and knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Barcelona, leaving the 13 time European champions with little to play for.

Another player whose future at the club remains unclear is Gareth Bale.

Gareth Bale is among the Madrid players to have struggled this season and fallen out with fans. "There will be changes but not right now, at the end of the season". There will be talk about everyone, every player is good and important. The goal-scoring figures from the centre of the park have shot up in recent games; indeed, a midfielder has been on the scoresheet in seven of the last twelve games.

Zidane's men are third in LaLiga, five points behind their city rivals Atletico Madrid, who eased past Celta Vigo 2-0 on Saturday. "Let's see how we play".
