Football fans will be able to catch a glimpse of Militao in the Champions League quarter-finals this season, after Porto advanced to the last eight with an extra-time win over Roma in the last 16.

According to Metro, the Portuguese tactician, who was sent packing by Man United mid-December was close to a return to the Santiago Bernabeu after talks with Madrid president Florentino Perez.

"I am not going to talk about Bale's season, I only talk about the 11 games we have left", Zidane said on Friday.

"Why would they need to give me an explanation?", Mourinho responded to a question if Real Madrid offered him an explanation after missing the managerial role. "We are prepared for tomorrow and Gareth is ready for it too", said Zidane. However, he said he did not have any issue with Zidane being hired.

Asked whether he would like to coach France worldwide Mbappe at some point, Zidane said: "Like with all good players, I would love to".

"I think it's flawless because of the fantastic things he has done in the past few years".

Zidane's side face a Celta Vigo outfit who are 18th in the table, a point adrift of safety, and also recently changed bosses, with Fran Escriba replacing the Miguel Cardoso.

"It's a great opportunity for him to prove how good he is, now with a new project".

'We have worked very well on the idea of a match'.
