Madrid are expected to spend heavily in the transfer market following Zidane's return, with Premier League players Paul Pogba, Eden Hazard and Christian Eriksen all reportedly targets, as well as Paris Saint-Germain forwards Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

It has been a hugely disappointing season for Los Blancos, who with seven La Liga games to go, are 14 points behind Barcelona and five behind Atletico Madrid.

Speaking ahead of Madrid's LaLiga clash with Leganes on Monday, Zidane said: "Toni is a key player".

Playing on Monday: "A lot of teams have to play on Monday and now we have to".

He's a great player who plays calmly.

The Germany worldwide has been a key player for Madrid since joining from Bayern Munich in 2014, with Los Blancos winning the Champions League in each of the last three seasons.

'He knows that he can do many things, he can score like a No 9 and he can do link-up play'.

They now sit third, some 14 points adrift of champions-elect Barcelona and five points behind neighbours Atletico Madrid in second.

Gareth Bale is among the Madrid players to have struggled this season and fallen out with fans.

Well, it looks like Kroos has no intention of exiting the Santiago Bernabéu at the end of the season and took to Twitter to dismiss the report as "Absolutely false information".

'Kroos is a very good player, not only for me, ' Zidane said.
