This season, many players have been linked with a move to Real Madrid, and according to the latest report by Guillem Balague, Ronaldo wants to play with Hazard and Lewandowski next term.

The first leg takes place in Turin on Tuesday but Zidane insists his side can not afford to look beyond their trip to 18th-placed Las Palmas this weekend as they return to action after the worldwide break.

Real are still favourites to beat Las Palmas despite the squad changes.

Real trail La Liga leaders Barcelona by 15 points and have a 13-point advantage ahead of fifth-placed Villarreal in their fight to qualify for next year's Champions League.

Real Madrid has a massive Champions League showdown on the horizon, but it won't want to overlook its league matchup vs. Las Palmas as La Liga resumes following the global break on Saturday. "Here we depend on the results, it has not changed, it will not change, it is the requirement of this club and I accept it. I do not feel exhausted, not at all".

Bale's national team coach believes he remains a talismanic presence for club and country when on top of his game, with there few players in world football capable of operating at his level.

"We are going to Las Palmas with the maximum illusion, without thinking about Tuesday's Champions League match".

Zidane also rested center half Sergio Ramos, midfielder Francisco "Isco" Alarcon, left back Marcelo and midfielder Toni Kroos.

Zidane, however, is not concerned.

'Perhaps he's not happy as he doesn't play as often for us as for Spain and he wants to play more but he's very important to us.
