We made series of mistakes, Zidane laments after Real Madrid draw

Mohamed Salah has wished Philippe Coutinho luck after moving to Barcelona

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane insists that he is "happy with his squad" and does not now have any plans to strengthen during the January transfer window.

"The relationship is not being allowed because they're playing so far apart from each other".

The former France worldwide watched his side slip 16 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona on Sunday as they were held to a 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo, which leaves them fourth in the current standings.

Earlier in the campaign a number of Los Blancos' players put pen-to-paper on new contracts as a reward for last season's heroics in which they won both La Liga and the Champions League.

Real Madrid fielded an nearly unrecognizable team and struggled into the Copa del Rey quarterfinals on Wednesday after a 2-2 draw against second division Numancia.

"It's already signed. But as always, I go game by game and year after year". The side from the Bernabeu are now fourth in the league table and a massive 16 points behind leaders Barcelona. I know the next game is the most important.

When the French manager was asked whether Madrid needs reinforcements and whether they are eyeing any signing during the ongoing open transfer window, Zidane said:"No, at the moment I do not want anyone".

Midfielder Marcos Llorente was particularly impressive at Numancia, while Zidane was pleased with the hour-long display of Bale, who stands a chance of starting again in midweek after netting twice in Vigo. I believe in my squad.

"To be very clear I do not want any [new players]". I don't think beyond that.

"But when a team is going [on] a bit [of a] bad [run], as can happen sometimes, there is talk of transfers".

The weekend setback, coming in their first league game since the demoralising 3-0 home loss to Barcelona past year, reignited talks of a crisis at the Spanish giant.

Real travelled to Vigo without Dani Carvajal, striker Karim Benzema and captain Sergio Ramos while Celta, which knocked Real out of the King's Cup last season, was emboldened after drawing 1-1 with Barca in the Cup Thursday.

Numancia are also likely to field a weakened eleven, with the visitors having Pape Diamanka suspended after his sending off in the first leg.
