Zidane doesn't want new signings despite Madrid struggles

Real, who are 14 points adrift of leaders Barcelona with a game in hand, will be without defender Sergio Ramos due to a calf problem, suspended right back Dani Carvajal plus injured striker Karim Benzema for Sunday's testing trip to Celta Vigo.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane says that he has no "need" for a new goalkeeper, despite reports that the club are on the verge of signing Kepa Arrizabalaga.

"Until the 31st [of January] we will see, but not at the moment, why?"

Gareth Bale was one of a handful of Real first team regulars on display at the Estadio Los Pajaritos, and was on hand to slot home the first from the penalty spot ten minutes before the break after Lucas Vazques was clumsily brought down in the box by Carlos Gutierrez.

But it was not good enough for Madrid as Celta equalised in the 82nd minute via Maxi Gomez after Iago Aspas had his penalty saved 10 minutes earlier.

The draw was Madrid's third consecutive LaLiga stalemate away from home - extending their winless run on the road to four matches.

Domestic demand was also higher: USA product supplied for crude oil and petroleum products was at the highest level since 2007. Brent crude LCOc1, the global benchmark, rose 5 cents to $67.92 a barrel as of 1:53 a.m.

Zidane dismissed those claims and offered support to the Costa Rican: 'I thought that Keylor did well and he's pleased with things. "And I'll try and we will try".

"In two years, no player has arrived in that position and [in June] we can discuss it".

"We have to stop making these errors and be more consistent".

A source at Barcelona told AFP that "for reasons of confidentiality the club never comments on contractual relations with players".

The Frenchman added: "We're not going to talk about the league every weekend, if we lose points we can not be successful. Having said that, like always I'm more interested in what we are going to do tomorrow", the Frenchman added. "You have to go match by match and win them".
