Zidane returns as Real Madrid manager

Tuesday’s edition of AS takes a look at what would happen to those players who are currently out on loan and Kovacic also gets a mention

Real have offered Solari the chance to remain at Madrid in a different role if he wants to continue working at the Bernabeu.

Fifa's refusal to freeze Chelsea's transfer ban during their appeal has complicated matters, but it has not altered Hazard's desire to join Real this summer.

Zinedine Zidane is back in charge at Real Madrid less than 10 months after stepping down as their boss.

The defending champions retain their title with a 4-1 win over Al Ain in the final at Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi to give Solari some silverware.

Zidane was replaced by Julen Lopetegui, the former Spain coach fired before the World Cup for taking the Madrid job.

He was suspended for the defeat to Ajax after deliberately picking up a yellow card in the first leg and, sitting in the stands for the return, Madrid's captain was then pictured filming a documentary as his team-mates were beaten 4-1.

"He'll probably now sit there and think 'yeah, I think I'll wait around for PSG [Paris Saint-Germain] now'".

Rising trade deficit no cause for worry
In 2009, amid the Great Recession, the trade deficit fell 40 per cent from the peak three years earlier to about US$506 billion. So some of the increased USA exports to China will mean a diversion of sales that had been going to other countries.

The Belgian has long flirted with a move to the Spanish club, and the prospect of playing under Zidane has many believing the 28-year-old will finally make his move away from Stamford Bridge - however likely it seemed anyway.

"Maybe after four months it would not have been like that, but now I really do".

Madrid's entire season has collapsed in the space of a week, with double Clasico defeats by Barcelona knocking them out of the Copa del Rey and leaving them 12 points adrift in La Liga.

Zidane's first spell in charge of the club included winning the Champions League three times in a row, as well as LaLiga in 2017.

Results have begun to dip for Solari after an initial resurgence, and there is talk of disharmony in the dressing room, particularly around Welsh striker Gareth Bale.

There is a stark contrast between Real Madrid lifting the Champions League trophy, and being dumped out at the round of 16.

Ronaldo left for Juventus last summer in an £88m deal and there have been suggestions that he could be set for a sensational return. The club hosts Celta Vigo at 11:15 a.m. Saturday at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid.
