Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has no interest in bringing in any more players before the transfer window closes next week, he said Tuesday.
Real still looked like a work in progress in Saturday's scrappy 3-2 win over Real Betis after drawing their first game of the season 0-0 at Real Sociedad, but the Frenchman does not believe adding to his squad is the answer.
Zidane will be without Germany midfielder Toni Kroos against Real Valladolid and Sunday's trip to Levante, but he said Eden Hazard was getting closer to returning to action.
There have been questions about Hazard's weight, but Zidane dismissed any suggestions the Belgian forward had an unprofessional attitude, putting his lack of impact at Real following his 100m-euro move last year down to two ankle injuries.
Due to renovation work on their Santiago Bernabeu stadium, Real are continuing to play home matches at their training ground, where they won all six matches at the end of last season.
