Zidane to talk to Morata

Zinedine Zidane returns from his holiday next week and has decisions to make ahead of his first full season as Real Madrid Coach.

AS reports Zidane will be back at his desk in early July and his first order of business will be to speak with Alvaro Morata and convince him he has a future at Santiago Bernabeu after Madrid exercised an option to bring him back from Juventus.

There are also players whose futures need deciding but Fabio Coentrao, who was at Monaco last year, is expected to remain with the first team.

Lucas Silva will be free to leave while Diego Llorente is close to Villarreal and Marco Asensio, who was at Espanyol last year, will have pre-season with Los Blancos before a decision is made on his club for 2016-17.

There are 10 players who need a decision made with only Denis Cheryshev, now at Villarreal, having had his future settled, AS adds.
