The Madrid boss has revealed that the club’s plan this summer was to have two players competing for every spot in the team.

Casemiro was one of Madrid’s key players in their Champions League triumph last season, and Zidane admits he does not have another player like the Brazilian to call upon.

When asked why Madrid didn’t add another marquee name to their side this summer, Zidane told RMC: ‘We got back [Alvaro] Morata, [Fabio] Coentrao and [Marco] Asensio.

‘Morata can cover Karim’s [Benzema] position and Asensio can cover Ronaldo’s. The idea was to duplicate all the positions.

‘The only player who has not a replacement is Casemiro.

‘Marcos Llorente is a very good and will certainly play here in the future but it was time to let him go on loan [to Alaves].’
