La Liga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 10/01/2018

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and coach Zinedine Zidane are in disagreement over transfer issue this winter, according to report.

Perez wants to bring in some additions to the squad and some of the position he wishes to strengthen the team. The president wants to sign a striker, a defender and a goalkeeper in a bid to have a better second half of the season.

The president was unimpressed with the first half of the season after Real Madrid dropped points recklessly and lose much ground to arch-rivals Barcelona at the early stage of the campaign.

Perez is keen on signing a goalkeeper to help solve the way Real Madrid concede goals, a proposal which Zidane does not welcome.

El Transistor state the two have not been on the same page regarding the potential signing of the Spain international with Zidane supporting current goalkeepers Keylor Navas and Kiko Casilla.

Reports in Diario AS say Kepa Arrizabalaga might be out for the next three months with surgery required to fix a complication after his medicals at Bernabeu.

At the moment it is uncertain if Real Madrid will complete the deal to sign Kepa from Athletic Bilbao this winter.
