Zinedine Zidane has hinted that Thibaut Courtois’ days at Real Madrid could be numbered.

The Belgium keeper secured his dream move to the Bernabeu from Chelsea last summer but things have quickly turned sour, with Zidane opting for Keylor Navas and his son Luca in his first two matches back in charge of the club.

Reports have suggested Real have reignited their interest in David De Gea and Zidane insists next season will bring clarity over his No.1.

“I assure you that next year there will be no debate about the goalkeeper,” said Zidane.

“Whether I will play with a regular goalkeeper next year? That depends on the keepers that I will have in my squad. At the moment I have three good ones.

“But there will be certainly no debate, I tell you that now. It’s going to be pretty clear.”

Real have been linked with countless signings this summer, including De Gea, Sadio Mane, Eden Hazard and Christian Eriksen.

Zidane says he has made he feelings clear to the Real hierarchy.

“I am speaking to the club, I have told the club what we want to do,” he continued. “We are already doing that. At the end of the season things will be made public.”
