Zinedine Zidane has set his sights on signing Sadio Mane and Paul Pogba to overhaul the Real Madrid team, according to a report in Spain.

Speaking after his return to the club earlier this week, the former midfielder said: "I left because a change was needed at the end of last season, for the good of everyone, after winning so much".

Zidane said: "I'm not going to talk about a player that isn't mine".

The final one of his previous stint was last season's Champions League final against Liverpool, which saw him guide Real to the trophy for a third successive year.

Zidane returned to Madrid this week nine months after quitting Los Blancos to replace Santiago Solari, who was shown the door following a dismal two weeks which saw them lose two Clasicos and 4-1 at home to Ajax.

"I'm not going to talk about a player that isn't mine", Zidane explained.

"There are 11 games left, and I will have everyone".

"The players - even those who have played less - are training, but then a game is not the same as a workout", the Frenchman told reporters at a news conference to preview Saturday's clash with Celta Vigo.

"Isco just wants to play football, nothing else", Zidane admitted in his pre-match press conference.

"We have to think about finishing the season well".

Rodriguez is a playmaker who needs the team to be built around him and while he is a slightly more willing runner than Ozil, he is not a high-octane player and that's what Emery seems to want. "The important thing is to all be ready, and I will count on everyone, including Isco [who barely featured under Solari] and all the others".
