Zinedine Zidane: Neymar irreplaceable but Barcelona will not change

Zidane left with dilemma after Super Cup success

Madrid head into Sunday's Spanish Super Cup first leg at Barcelona with talk already around the Bernabeu of winning a "sextete" (six trophies) this season, which would match the historic achievement of Guardiola's Barca in 2009. Victories over Sevilla, Celta Vigo and Malaga saw Los Blancos take the La Liga title away from Barcelona, before a 4-1 win over Juventus made it back-to-back Champions League crowns.

According to Spanish publication AS, the new agreement 45-year-old coach with real Madrid runs until 2020. A renewal is pending, however, with the midfielder revealing that a deal was "very close" after Tuesday's Super Cup success. "It is a game against the best rival we have". "This is going to be a hard year because already on Sunday we have a complicated match". The reason for Modrić's ban: he was sent off in the 89th minute of the second leg of the 2014 Spanish Super Cup against Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona are considering a move for Marco Asensio if they can not sign Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembele this summer - but the Real Madrid starlet has a £72million release clause.

A footage from the Daily Mail showed Ernesto Valverde، gearing up for his first season in charge of Barcelona، put his players through an intense session at the club's base on Thursday.

FC Barcelona are reportedly plotting a shock bid for one of Real Madrid's up-and-coming stars. Barcelona couldn't count on a suspended Neymar for that match, but Messi scored twice, including a dramatic last-gasp goal, to seal a memorable 3-2 win.

Meanwhile، Barcelona mainstay Andres Iniesta was absent after he was given permission to miss training by former Athletic Bilbao manager Valverde. "We have tried to maintain that with the new great players - like Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale, great players who help you to grow both on and off the pitch". "It's an important title and I think that we are prepared".
