Real Madrid were never afraid of Atletico comeback, insists Marcelo

Rita Gibson | 16 May, 2017, 11:55

ZINEDINE ZIDANE is set to extend his stay at the Bernabeu Stadium as Real Madrid prepare to offer him a new deal until 2020.

According to Marca, tying Zidane down for the long haul is President Florentino Perez's "aspiration" and the renewal will be signed "whenever the Frenchman wants".

Then on June 3, the Merengues have the Champions League final, where they will attempt to be the first team to win the tournament in consecutive seasons.

FC Barcelona and Real Madrid face vital matches as the race for the La Liga football title goes into the final straight.

That prospect now looks remote, with the French boss striking a far from encouraging tone as he revealed: "We are taking it day by day with Gareth. I can not tell you when he will return, but hopefully it is soon".

Zidane paid tribute to Pepe's contribution to the club since joining in 2007 but said he is unable to clarify what the 34-year-old's future holds at the moment. "It's been 10 years where he's done fantastic things, but with this I'm not telling you what is going to happen next year because I do not know".

Madrid are locked on 84 points with Barcelona at the top of the La Liga standings, but are now second due to an inferior head-to-head record.

After today Madrid's remaining league games will be played away from home, with Wednesday's trip to Celta Vigo followed by a season finale at Malaga next weekend.

"We have done phenomenally so far".

"We have a better chance than ever (to do the double), four games to win the league and Champions League, but we still haven't won anything, we have to continue on the same path and keep working".

Even though they have a record 32 Spanish top-flight crowns and 11 European Cups/Champions League titles, Real have often struggled to combine their domestic and European campaigns.

"We can't be thinking about Madrid, we can only think about ourselves", the Brazilian told BeIN Sports.
