Real Madrid have had a disappointing season so far, and linger down in third place in La Liga, while they were shockingly knocked out of the Copa del Rey by third tier Alcoyano. Pressure is contuining to mount on club legend Zinedine Zidane, meaning their business in the transfer market could be impacted.

Uncertainty around Zinedine Zidane’s future as Real Madrid manager could have big implications on their future transfer dealings.

That is set to impact deals that Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all hope to complete.

Real currently linger down in third place in La Liga after an underwhelming campaign.

Los Blancos were shockingly knocked out of the Copa del Rey by third tier Alcoyano, while they will face Liverpool in the quarter finals of the Champions League.

Pressure continues to build on Zidane, and Marca claim that there is a consensus that if he fails to claim any silverware this summer, he could be sacked.

If the Frenchman is sacked, then their potential business in this summer’s transfer window will most certainly be impacted.

Zidane is believed to be in the running to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

United and Chelsea are also in that boat, and without a manager and a clear vision, the Premier League duo may have a serious edge over their Spanish rival.

Meanwhile, for Arsenal, they are believed to be hoping to secure a permanent deal for loan star Martin Odegaard, who has impressed so far.

It is claimed that Real bosses are unhappy with Zidane’s reluctance to give the Norwegian regular playing time.

So he is clearly in the clubs long-term plans, even if he is not in Zidane’s, which could make a deal complicated.

There is also the small matter that Arsenal could reportedly face competition from Chelsea and Liverpool for Odegaard’s signature this summer if he does become available.

There are fears that his price could have sky-rocketed to £50m by the end of the season, as revealed by the Daily Star, which leaves their English rivals with an advantage, as they are understood to be in a better financial situation.
