Barcelona vs Real Madrid, Spanish Super Cup

"My story with Real Madrid is deeper than contracts and signatures", Zidane said in a news conference ahead of Sunday's Spanish Super Cup clash against Barcelona, live on Sky Sports.

"I'm happy to be linked with the club". I'm happy, but my contract means nothing.

Asensio believes he deserves a pay rise after impressing in his first season under Zinedine Zidane and apparently wants a new deal worth £5.5m-a-year. I know where I am and what I have to do, and that's it. In one year, maybe I won't be here.

The Frenchman confirmed striker Cristiano Ronaldo is fit to start, after he appeared from the bench against Manchester United on Tuesday as Madrid won the UEFA Super Cup in Skopje.

The Spanish global had less than 12 months to run on his existing deal at the Bernabeu and had been sensationally linked with a move to rivals Barcelona as well as Premier League giants Manchester United and Arsenal.

Real Madrid's Keylor Navas lifts the trophy after winning the UEFA Super Cup.

By continuing to win as a manager, Zidane has further cemented his place in the club's history.

"My work? I try to carry it out every day, I'm the Coach, I have to do my bit and we're doing well".

"Our objectives will be the same, we know what club this is and the great thing is that we enjoy this job". Neymar is now history having opted to move to Paris Saint-Germain.

"Their idea isn't going to change, I said that there was no-one else like Neymar, he's irreplaceable, but there's someone else that will do well for them".

Barcelona also know that the last time the two sides met they also emerged victorious, when, once again they edged a five-goal thriller, beating Real Madrid 3-2 in Miami on the US Tour.

However, whether either is viewed as a long-term replacement for Neymar remains to be seen. "If we think it is going to be easier tomorrow we will be mistaken".
