As the current campaign slowly comes to a close, there is heavy speculation that Los Blancos will be looking to sell a few of their stars in order to free up some funds for the upcoming transfer window.
However, when asked recently if winger Gareth Bale and striker Karim Benzema will still be playing at the Santiago Bernabeu next season, Zidane insisted he is not looking to get rid of them.
"I do not think their future is in danger here," the French tactician answered, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
"That's (transfer talk) football, we need all the players. They do not make a bad impression on me. They train well. Of course, they would like to play more often, but apart from that, everyone works well.
"It will always be the case that some players are in better form than others."
The Frenchman also addressed the ongoing rumour that he will be looking for a new goalkeeper at the end of this season.
"In January, we did not, and (now) do not need to, sign a goalkeeper," the Los Blancos boss added.
"We had three then and we still have three now, maybe in the future the situation will change when we need a goalkeeper and we can discuss that then."
Real are almost certainly out of the race for the LaLiga title, but are still in contention for the UEFA Champions League trophy.
