Real Madrid coach Zidane: Ceballos deserved his selection

Gareth Bale was also named in the starting line-up at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday as Madrid launched their new era under Zidane at home to Celta Vigo in La Liga.

However, it is believed that Zidane isn't an admirer of Courtois; indeed he dropped the Belgian for his first game back as Real boss and started Keylor Navas instead.

"Isco and Marcelo are both ready to play, they want to play and we will see them play", he said.

Meanwhile, few will have celebrated Zidane's return as much as Isco, who started 36 games under the Frenchman last season, but had found himself in the starting XI just 11 times under Solari and Julen Lopetegui in the current campaign.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to rule out a potential move to bring long-term target Gareth Bale to Manchester United in the summer.

Real paid £35million to sign Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea last summer.

Madrid lie 12 points adrift of leaders Barcelona, who play away at Real Betis on Sunday. Replays showed he had indeed elbowed Celta defender Kevin Vazquez, and the Welshman was duly booked.

The midfielder lashed out at Zidane earlier this season.

"Because they're property of other players but we should look for quality players, definitely, and players who could improve us as a team".

That battle for the No 1 jersey will resume as the season draws to a close, while Zidane has 10 more games to evaluate his squad before he considers what changes need to be made.
