Zidane hints Madrid could make big signing before window shuts

Zinedine Zidane spoke in a press conference on Saturday ahead of Real Madrid’s trip to Villarreal and suggested that there could still be more signings before the transfer market shuts on Monday.

The Madrid boss spoke little about the Villarreal game and a lot about other issues: Keylor Navas, the transfer market, his relationship with president Florentino Perez.

“We will see until Monday at 12,” Zidane said when asked if there could still be a ‘bomb’ in the transfer market. “Anything can happen. A bomb, two bombs…. We will see.”

On Navas’ situation, he said that “anything could happen with Keylor” with the goalkeeper strongly linked with a move to PSG. He added: “The important thing is he’s with us and what’s important is winning tomorrow.”

Zidane was also asked about how he’s getting along with president Perez: “[Our relationship] has always been good. He was the president that brought me here, I won’t forget that. Each person can interpret things as they want. I want to talk about the game.”
