Real Madrid have been a shell of their former selves since Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo left the club.

But now with the Frenchman returning to the helm after unsuccessful tenures by Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari, the club seems to have a new lease of life.

Los Blancos currently sit third in the league table and have been eliminated from the Copa del Rey and the Champions League.

A FIFA Club World Cup victory under Solari merely papered over the cracks at the time, with squad morale and poor performances over shadowing any minor success.

Fans have been crying out for some major names to join the club since Zidane's return, with many referencing the 'Galacticos' era as the expectation moving forward.

Zidane was a part of the Galacticos himself along with other club legends Luis Figo, Raul, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo and David Beckham.

The likes of Eden Hazard, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have been mentioned as potential candidates to become the new 'Galacticos'.

However, former Madrid full-back Alvaro Arbeloa does not think that a squad overhaul is needed and believes the squad is good enough as it is.

"I see a squad that's difficult to improve," the former full-back told El Chiringuito.

"Outside of Real Madrid, there aren't many players who can improve what there is at the club right now."

The ex-Liverpool player believes that fans have forgotten how much success this group of players has had.

"The word 'revolution' doesn't fit for me. These are the same players who won four Champions Leagues. I don't think the problem at Madrid is one of age," Arbeloa added.

With Madrid's season seemingly over in terms of earning any silverware, it will certainly be interesting to see how many stars they will sign in the summer window, especially with the reported 300 million at Zizou's disposal.
