Real Madrid coach Zidane: De Tomas has done very well

According to Don Balon, the Madrid boss suspects the goalkeeper of feigning injury so as to skip some "unimportant" games.

Zinedine Zidane said today that he hopes Real Madrid will bolster their attack this summer, doing little to deflate speculation surrounding moves for Neymar and Eden Hazard.

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba have been strongly linked with summer moves to Madrid, while Raul De Tomas could return from his loan spell at Rayo.

The Chelsea superstar looks increasingly likely to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, following seven years in a Blues shirt.

Asked whether Bale and Hazard could operate together, Zidane recalled an experience from his own decorated playing career when he and Youri Djorkaeff were the creative inspirations behind France's 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000 triumphs.

"What nonsense", Zidane said when it was put to him that Bale and Hazard could not play together in the same team.

Rayo Vallecano enters the weekend competition in last place, needing a win to avoid securing relegation with a couple of matches to spare.
