But Odriozola has aimed to play down that speculation, insisting he is happy to continue at the Basque club.

The Spurs manager has praised the job Zidane has done since he replaced Rafael Benitez as Real Madrid boss in January 2016.

Getafe meanwhile have made a solid return to the Liga Santander and promise to mix solid defense with effectiveness from set pieces, something Madrid's sometimes less than solid defence will have to be aware of.

"What I like about Zidane is his tranquility and his common sense, he manages the bench just like when he played football", he declared.

Zidane's 100 games have seen him take Madrid to two Champions League titles and last season's domestic league, but his side travel to the south of the capital 7 points behind league leaders FC Barcelona, who have a difficult game away to Atletico Madrid later in the evening. With a number of players likely to depart in the summer Zidane is already looking at areas to strengthen, and six players have been established as targets for next summer.

Madrid won LaLiga last season and became the first team to retain the European Cup in its present format when they dispatched Juventus 4-1 in the final in Cardiff. Zidane will hope that the Frenchman's intelligent link up play will bring the best out of other members of the team.

"Now my time with the national team is over and I'm now fully focused on La Real".
