Reports: Why Real Are Getting Rid Of Zidane's Son

Zinedine Zidane shocked many when he announced he was quitting Real Madrid, and it has now been now claimed his son, Luca, has been told he can leave the club too.

Reports: The Truth Behind Zidane's Real Madrid Exit

In May, the Frenchman confirmed in a press conference alongside Florentino Perez that he was leaving Los Blancos following two incredible seasons as manager.

Zidane insisted at the time that his decision to move on was because he felt the club needed change, but some believed it was more to do with the fact that the manager and president had different plans for the 2018/19 campaign.

It was said that Perez and Zidane had opposing ideas as to which players the club should sign and sell ahead of the next campaign, which eventually led to the Frenchman announcing his departure.

According to Sport, young Luca Zidane has been informed that he will need to leave the club if he wants regular first team football, and while that seems reasonable considering Real's interest in Brazil goalkeeper Alisson, there could be more to it.

The publication has speculated that telling the 20-year-old to leave may be Perez's way of getting revenge on the shot-stopper's dad, especially since it was Zidane who decided against signing Athletic Bilbao keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Many have claimed that the former Los Blancos boss was protecting his son by refusing to bring the 23-year-old Spain international to the Spanish giants, a decision Perez was against.
