Los Blancos have had a mixed start to the season, having won some big fixtures, including the latest El Clasico, and slumped to a 4-1 defeat at Valencia on the weekend.

They currently occupy fourth place on the league table, with five wins from eight games, and according to the Daily Mail, there is tension behind the scenes.

It is claimed that Real president Florentino Perez has "expressed doubts over the Frenchman" and was left bemused by his team selection against Valencia.

The exclusion of left-back Ferland Mendy and midfielder Toni Kroos from the starting XI in the defeat to Los Che raised eyebrows, especially considering the fact that Isco and Marcelo were involved despite off-the-pitch issues and current form.

After the international break, Real face massive tests against Villarreal in the league and Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League, and Zidane also has some squad concerns with Eden Hazard and Casemiro both having tested positive for COVID-19, while Fede Valverde is out for a month after reportedly suffering a shin fracture.
