Zidane replaced in January replaced Rafa Benitez on the Santiago Bernabeu bench, having been in command of Real Madrid Castilla.

Marca notes Zidane didn’t get a new deal when he stepped in for his predecessor but has recently agreed terms, with his contract still running to 2018, as did his Castilla deal.

There wasn’t a negotiation, the report adds, as Zidane accepted Madrid’s proposal, but his salary has been increased to mirror his new job.
