Zidane laps up the Madrid sun as he takes training session since his return

  /  autty

Zinedine Zidane continues to ease back into life at Real Madrid after taking his third training session on Friday morning.

The Frenchman put his players through their paces on a sunny day at the club's training ground as he prepares for his first game back on Saturday.

Real will host Celta Vigo at the Bernabeu as Zidane will look to get the Spanish giants back on track following their underwhelming season so far.

He rejoined with them 12 points off the pace in La Liga and on the back of a  humiliating  Champions League defeat by Ajax at the last-16 stage.

However, it hasn't taken long for Zidane to make his mark on his return to the club after he completed the signing of Eder Militao from Porto just three days into his second stint as manager.

They announced the signing of 21-year-old Militao on Thursday, who will join from Porto in a €50million (£43m) deal in the summer.

Militao has signed a six-year deal at the Bernabeu, with Madrid confirming he has committed his future to the club until 2025.

Reports in Spain claimed Madrid were keen to wrap the deal up before Militao's buy-out clause increased from £43m to £64m in July.

Gareth Bale's future at the Bernabeu has also been cast into doubt following Zidane's return.

Bale has had a difficult season in Spain and failed to see eye-to-eye with the man who brought three successive Champions League titles to Madrid.

However, Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett, claims he is 'fine' with the Frenchman's return, though they have not spoken since Bale's brace in last year's final in Kiev.
