But speaking ahead of Real's trip to Leganes on Monday night, Zidane was full of praise for Benzema, saying that he offers something different to many forwards.
Playing on Monday: "A lot of teams have to play on Monday and now we have to".
'Benzema is compatible with everyone because he can bring all the good players together, ' Zidane said.
Courtois: "He's not well, it's not just one problem it's two or three". He's been at Madrid five years and has done great things for us.
Of course, asking all players who have social media accounts to respond to the rumors surrounding them is impossible mainly because there may be some truth behind them but it's also hard for a fan of any team to see one of their star players surrounded by all these stories which turn out to be false in the end.
Squad. "The players don't know what will happen, I haven't spoken to them, there's time for that".
Since Zinedine Zidane's re-appointment as Real Madrid manager last month, the Spanish side have been linked with a whole host of players, particularly from the Premier League, with the likes of Eden Hazard, Paul Pogba, N'Golo Kante, and Christian Eriksen being linked with a move to the Bernabeu.
Well, it looks like Kroos has no intention of exiting the Santiago Bernabéu at the end of the season and took to Twitter to dismiss the report as "Absolutely false information". "We will see what changes we make and which players we will change".
