There is no other option, those in charge of Real Madrid have decided to all but write off their league campaign this season, with everything now focused on the Champions League, and a huge clash with Paris Saint-Germain on February 14, 2018.

They will not admit it publicly, but 14 points behind halfway through the season is a huge obstacle to overcome. The logical objective now is the Champions League, where they will face the most difficult possible rival in the next round in the French champions. That is why Zinedine Zidane has 50 days to save the season, 50 days to prepare for a clash which will determine whether or not the season can be saved, Marca reported.

After all, it is titles that will be remembered, and that is what made 2017 the most successful year in the history of Real Madrid. Before making big decisions in the January transfer window, Florentino Perez and Jose Angel Sanchez want to take some time for reflection, though they are fully aware of the errors made in the past and the need to face what is left of the season with a new look.

There is no problem with the current squad, but a new arrival will provide a threat to the regulars in the starting line-up, one thing which has been sorely lacking during Zidane’s reign.

A heavy defeat to Barcelona will cause a speeding up in the process behind the scenes in the next few days, with talks already ongoing. However, January signings can be difficult and often turn into problems rather than solutions.

The aim is to sign a goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, a defender and a striker, although Zidane does not want a forward.
