  • Cristiano Ronaldo Lionel Messi Real Madrid Barcelona La Liga

Zinedine Zidane spoke to media ahead of the Madrid derby and gave his thoughts on the season and the potential scenario of playing Barcelona after they have wrapped up La Liga.

With eight games remaining, Madrid are third in La Liga, four points behind second-placed Atletico and 13 adrift of leaders Barcelona.

The Frenchman has explained that the decision was taken by him, and it came as a result of La Blaugrana refusing them a guard of honor when they returned home after winning the World Club Cup.

"We're not going to do the guard" Zidane said at a news conference ahead of the Madrid derby against Atletico, who are also Barcelona's closest pursuers.

The article says that Manchester United are keen to sign two central midfielders this summer, with Michael Carrick set to retire and Marouane Fellaini looking like he will leave Old Trafford at the end of the season. But Zidane has declared that his team will break tradition and won't be showing their respect in that way - if any at all - when they meet again next month.

Eurosport have also reported that Real are considering a swoop for Chelsea's Eden Hazard, while Manchester United's goalkeeper David de Gea has been a long term target of the club's. "We know the player he is, what he has done". I don't believe that it's true that he only features in the less important games. They welcome Juventus to the Santiago Bernabéu for the second leg on 11th April.

"However we finish the season, my feeling is Gareth is going to stay", said Zidane.

There have only been three previous occasions in which a guard of honour has been presented in meetings between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
