Zinedine Zidane: 'I am happy with Dani Ceballos'

Madrid nearly had their man two seasons ago, before a move for De Gea fell through at the 11th-hour on deadline day.

Los Blancos are having a terrible season in La Liga, by their own high standards at least.

But when asked about the move, Zidane wanted to make it clear he isn't looking for a new number one anytime soon.

The 27-year-old almost left for Real two years ago, but an administrative error saw him remain at Old Trafford. "The season is long and it's less so if you have everyone available".

David de Gea's wife Edurne García Almagro is a star in her own right in Spain. "Regarding signings, I have two goalkeepers and I'm very happy with both of them", There has been ongoing speculation regarding the interest of Los Blancos in signing Kepa Arrizabalaga in January. However, Zidane, who does not see it as a possibility, said, "We're very far from that, I don't even think about it as a possibility". We have 30 days to see what can happen.

Essien hopes the 26-year-old stays at Stamford Bridge, but concedes there's a high chance he will quit London to become a Galactico.

Zidane has claimed that he is pleased with Ceballos's form after the Spaniard appeared off the bench in Wednesday's Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund. He is suspected to have sustained a muscular injury, but Zidane did not reveal the extent of the knock following their win.

"Ultimately, we insisted on finishing the group stage with a victory, which is good for us mentally".

"Now we have qualified for eighths, which is the most important".

"Now we must focus on the league, then we will worry about the Champions League".
