Zinedine Zidane 'happy' as he confirms he will extend Real Madrid contract

Ronaldo enjoyed a longer vacation than his Real Madrid teammates to fully recover from Portugal's participation in the Confederations Cup in June.

Let us know via Twitter and Facebook.

But he said: "I am not anxious about this".

The 25-year-old actually signed the deal in July, before heading to the USA for Real's pre-season tour, but it was agreed not to make the extension public until this month.

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale attempts to get past Manchester United's Victor Lindelof.

There was simply no stopping the former Malaga playmaker from that moment as he helped Real Madrid to four wins in their final four matches of the campaign. But whoever comes in will play very well too.

"It is the same as with Alfredo Di Stefano in the past, when Santiago Bernabeu was president, and I have tried to copy that. He's a player I'm very fond of", Zidane said at the start of February.

Vicente del Bosque says it is right to compare Zinedine Zidane's all-conquering Real Madrid side to the Barcelona team managed by Pep Guardiola between 2008 and 2012.

He then backed that up with a La Liga and European double in 2016-17 - Real's first since 1958.

Zidane will be hoping to add more major honours to his glittering CV over the course of the next three seasons, having enjoyed considerable success at the Real helm so far.

Vallejo, 20, has returned to Real Madrid this summer to fill the gap left by the departure of Pepe after an impressive loan spell at Eintracht Frankfurt.

FC Barcelona entertain Real Madrid in the first leg of the Spanish Supercup on Sunday night in what will be the first real indication of the relative strengths of the two major favourites for the La Liga title in the 2017-18 football season a week before that competition kicks off.

Both teams competing for the Spanish Super Cup will have personnel issues to address as a result of Modrić's suspension, with Barcelona beginning life without Neymar Jr.
