Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has insisted his focus is firmly on Saturday’s LaLiga trip to Mallorca, despite the controversy over the postponement of ‘El Clasico’ later this month.

Los Blancos’ clash with rivals Barcelona is set to be moved to December.

The original clash was called off, due to fears over civil unrest involving pro-independence protesters in Catalonia.

But Zidane said his side will simply “adapt” to any new date.

“In the end, I believe the most important thing is tomorrow.

“We know what has happened in the past two weeks with injured players but we will prepare to play a good game,” Zidane told reporters.

LaLiga: Messi confirms he won’t sign lifetime contract at Barcelona messi

Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has said he will not sign a lucrative lifetime deal with the club.

The Catalan club were prepared to offer the deal to their greatest ever player, which would ensure he finishes his football at the Nou Camp.

Messi’s current deal still has two years to run, but Barca are confident that the 32-year-old can still play at his prime beyond the upcoming 2022 World Cup.

However, Messi made a rare public appearance on Argentine radio station Metro 95.1, to feature on the ‘dogs of the street’ broadcast.

And he said: “It is true that Barcelona proposed me a contract for life, but what I said was that I do not want a contract that binds me like that.

“I want to be fine to continue playing and to continue fighting for goals here. Being here I can be for life, but not with a contract. Here I would stay a lifetime.”
