He will meet with Los Blancos' squad, including his idol Cristiano Ronaldo, thanks to a humanitarian initiative thought to have been arranged by manager Zinedine Zidane.

Jibril Rajoub, the head of the Palestinian Football Association thanked the La Liga giants for their "superb humanitarian gesture" and credited Madrid for "restoring hope for a child who lost his entire family."

"There is an unknown soldier in this initiative and that is Zinedine Zidane, who we warmly thank," Rajoub said.
