Despite ups and downs in their relationships, Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid are a pair that share an unbreakable bond of history and glory, creating an everlasting legacy that epitomizes excellence.

While the Frenchman left Los Blancos on bitter terms after the conclusion of his previous managerial spell, journalist Sabre Desfarges (h/t Mundo Deportivo) is claiming that the strained relationship has improved a lot to the point that there is a possibility of Zidane returning to Real Madrid.

After the end of the previous term, Zidane in the letter published to AS, wrote, “I am not abandoning ship and I am not tired of coaching, I am going because I feel that the club no longer gives me the trust I need and doesn’t offer me the support needed to build something in the mid and long term.”

In spite of such ideas previously, the possibility of seeing Zidane return to take the helm at Madrid, possibly next year, is not implausible.

The chances of Zidane returning to management this year were dismissed by the journalist despite interest from PSG and Juventus. However, he does not rule out the possibility of plausible for Zidane succeeding Carlo Ancelotti in 2024 when the Italian’s contract with Real Madrid expires.

As Ancelotti looks destined to take over Brazil in 2024, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez will surely be on the lookout for a new manager.

From Germany, they report that Xabi Alonso is Perez’s preferred option, but the case with Zidane is not closed yet and time will tell if any advancements are made.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
