Real Madrid heads into the new season with more questions than answers

(CNN) — Zinedine Zidanes next coming Real Madrid proved the Frenchman is no miracle worker.
He had been supposed to provide solutions to a crisis-ridden season when he returned as coach.
From the time two managers — Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari — had been gone in the blink of the eye.
Fast forward to the conclusion of the year and Real Madrid had dropped 17 matches in all competitions and completed 19 points which makes it the Los Blancos facet of this 21st Century.
Real lost four of the 11 games of Zidane but his spell made him the benefit of the doubt with all the clubs board.
However, because La Liga kicks off — Athletic Club beat Barcelona on Friday — doubts still linger over Zidanes individual management abilities, his tactical nous and whether or not the success of his first bout had been down to 11 players man brilliance — especially Cristiano Ronaldos relentless goalscoring feats.
I feel that the principal achievement of Zidane in the prior years was Cristiano Ronaldo and hes not at Madrid anymore, Catalunya Radio journalist Ernest Macia told CNN Sport.
So now well see the authentic Zidane. The folks here in Madrid said:The Real Madrid of Zinedine Zidane, it had been the Real Madrid of Cristiano Ronaldo. Now we will see how difficult it is to handle, to master a dressing room like Real Madrid when results are not great.
He has a lot of credit because he won three Champions Leagues, however it will depend not only on the consequences but on how Real Madrid plays. Unlike Barcelona, which is a club having a doctrine and DNA, Real is a team which welcomes cash to acquire titles

Pogba or Pogba
A — which has included a and Zidane feud with Gareth Bale has included yet more uncertainty at the club to an period.
It has been reported that the Frenchman will now keep both Bale and James Rodriguez from the group against his own fantasies, as Real failed to land his own No. 1 midfielder target Paul Pogba.
Real President Florentino Perez has been believed to be a fan of this Welshman — coming during his time at the club and James, also has clashed above their future jobs.
Zinedine Zidane desired Pogba at any price, Macia stated. If he was asked:Ok, if Pogba is not possible, another participant? He said:Pogba.
Of course it is a big disappointment if Pogba remains [at Manchester United], hell need to locate solutions someplace else. He has been given three of four unique choices and he is not happy with Bale, who is a player who makes a huge difference but he gets hurt very frequently.
Several new summer signings will require time and to what he sees as his defender that is trusted Zidane has continued to show preference.
Karim Benzema seems set to start the season up front before new $60 million ($66.5M) striker Luka Jovic, while doubts remain as to the role summer marquee signing Eden Hazard may play.
Real announced Friday the Belgian star has suffered a hamstring injury and will miss Saturdays season opener against Celta Vigo, to make things worse.
Stalwart Marcelo will likely be chosen at left back to arousing young signing Ferland Mendy, as will Raphael Varane in place of 50 million ($55M) registering Eder Militao to associate captain Sergio Ramos in the heart of defense.
I dont see them winning a lot more titles, Macia explained. In Europe they have big opponents, in La Liga theyve Barcelona which is well accommodated. It will come down to how this project expands.
With fresh players, notably the signing of Hazard, and also how they create the transition from the old ones — like Modric in midfield — along with the newcomers. I think that Real has the players to get it done but Im not sure that Zidane is your guy.
I think it will be very difficult for him and his brand newest time there will be more difficult than the previous four decades.

Champions League obsession
Together with Atletico Madrid getting the largest squad overhaul — albeit an intriguing one — at Diego Simeones eight-year predominate, Barcelonas settled side would be the overwhelming favourite to keep its La Liga name.
The $120 million ($132M) registering of Antoine Griezmann from lead rival Atleti and the coming of precocious talent Frenkie de Jong from Ajax has bolstered an already world class group.
However, Barcelonas attention this season will be about the Champions League, a competition it has crashed from in spectacular style the past two seasons and hasnt won since 2015.
After surrendering 3-0 and 4-1 Duty contributes against Roma and Liverpool , respectively, there is a growing issue among fans that the club is throwing off chances for the best player ever: Lionel Messi.
After what has happened in the previous two seasons, the Champions League has become the priority — I would say it is an obsession, Macia said. At Barcelona we all know we have possibly the best player of all time and that were squandering our time committing silly mistakes.
In Barcelona we believe the Champions League is essential for this team. Since Barcelona has an amazing team although not only because of Messi.
Theyve invested a Great Deal of money in Griezmann and De Jong and possibly Barcelona has the best group in Europe, along with Manchester City.
The pre-season of barcelona showing hints that the new players are currently incorporating well into the programs this season, losing only once and has been promising.
But the defeat in Bilbao Friday of Barca hinted while Real won 3-1 away at Celta Vigo despite playing the majority of the second half after Luka Modric was routed off the Blaugrana might have a fight on his hands win the name.
