Zinedine Zidane: Feeling good about Real Madrid's chances

Carlo Ancelotti's men currently top the Primera Division standings by a point ahead of rivals Barcelona, who they will face in the Copa del Rey final next month.

The capital club are also pretty much assured of their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after defeating German side Schalke 6-1 in the first leg of their last-16 clash.

With several players hitting peak form since the turn of the year, Zidane is optimistic Real can win all three tournaments for the first time in their history.

"Of course you should discuss the possibility of winning the treble," he said in an interview with Spanish newspaper El Confidencial.

"When you play at Real Madrid you know what the objectives are. We are in three competitions and we are there.

"We must go on, knowing that it is very difficult because there are very good teams. If you remain focused and working well, we can achieve important things."

Real are unbeaten since suffering a 2-1 defeat at Barcelona on October 26 - a run of 28 games in all competitions.

"It's an awful lot of games," Zidane added. "You know what's the secret? The players. We also have a very good coach who leads the group."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
